Especially northern liberals. I'm a college-educated middle class liberal woman from small town New England and this book called me out on my bullshit, most of which I was completely unaware. The authors are first and foremost funny AF. They are also intelligent, informed, self-deprecating, fiercely proud and brutally honest. And hearing their own voices has helped to dispel my preconceptions associated with the Southern accent. In fact, these smart-talking boys sound sexy as hell! More important, their message must be heeded by the American "left," which judging from 2016 election needs to come down from its high horse and get some correctly fitting britches. I sincerely hope the Liberal Rednecks can help pull Dixie out of the dark, but they have already succeeded in shining a light for this Yankee.

Don't confuse this book with the typical redneck satirists like Larry The Cable Guy or Jeff Foxworthy ("you know you're a redneck when..."). Reading this book is like spending time with "real" legitimate southern rednecks who are normal people just like you and me, but see the world from an entirely different perspective. If you were at all surprised that Donald Trump won the US election, then you need to read this book. This book is a must read for all "city liberals" who don't understand what is going on outside of urban America. This book will set you free...and make you laugh out loud.

I heard of The Liberal Redneck from "Mark in the Morning", a former LA morning radio show. These three fly in the face of several stereotypes about the American South and hammer home the truth about others. They prove that you can be a true hick and not be an a*hole, which may be a surprise to the rest of teh country, if not the world. Excellent work and extremely funny.
These guys are right on and know exactly what they talked about. I feel incredibly proud of my deep southern roots and appreciate the push to remember that more often. I have been telling all my southern friends that these guys just get it.
If you aren't from the South, I strongly encourage you to pick up The Liberal Redneck Manifesto so that you can learn a thing or 200 about differing experiences and perspectives.
Best book I've read this year and I am grateful that these guys were able to put their thoughts to paper.
