Publisher's Summary

Michael Medved is an orthodox Jew whose popular radio show is a favorite with evangelical Christians. As a nationally syndicated movie reviewer he made headlines with a controversial book titled Hollywood vs. America. He is a fervent and committed conservative who once worked 18-hour days in Bobby Kennedy's presidential campaign. And he counts among his friends both Rush Limbaugh and Hillary Clinton. He is a unique man, with a unique story to tell. In Right Turns, Medved recounts his incredible journey from secularism to religion, from adventurous single man to devoted and doting husband and father, from gloomy critic of "our sick society" to optimistic and impassioned promoter of American patriotism. With conviction but without vitriol, he relates his sometimes painful but ultimately illuminating process of maturation. Right Turns is a candid, often funny, thoroughly captivating memoir that says a lot about the interplay of the personal and the political.

Great for liberals and conservatives

We can all learn from other people's experiences. Medved walks the listener through the key moments in his life that changed him from a young naive peacenic liberal at Yale University to a staunch conservative advocate. Medved's 'right turns' are the events and revelations that have contributed to his moral compass and life understanding. Highly recommended. You can benefit from Medved's experiences without making the same mistakes he did.

One man's quirky journey through life

Though not a big fan of his radio show, (I listen less than once every couple of months), this story of his journey thus far was endlessly fasinating. For the political junkie like me, to hear his impressions of the many people who crossed his path earlier in life was surprising. People you would expect him to savage, he had nothing but nice things to say. The twists and turns of his life and the lessons he offers from them I found both compelling and touching.
