The introduction was wonderful and I felt that the book would discuss the need for continued discussion and "argument" of the key topics of America. However, with the first chapter I found that I knew exactly which side of the arguments the author was on and that he was interested in converting readers to his side, and not to promote the idea that our country should continue to argue these points. I was hoping for a less-biased push for more communication and discussion by all of America, what I feel that I got was an argument for the author's beliefs. It is too bad because if one is looking for arguments for both sides and why we should continue to arguments, then this is not the book. I find that it is good to hear arguments from the "other side" even if I do not agree. It helps me develop my arguments, understand others arguments and opens my mind to new ideas and points of view. This book did none of that, nor did it make me feel that "argumentation" is good.

What a great concept, but the author ruins the idea by his blatant bias and misstatements of history. His inaccuracy about the War Powers Act and the story of Richard Nixon leaving office are but two (of many) examples. His continual railing against the Bush administration and sympathetic treatment of limousine liberals ruin any enjoyment of what could be a good argument. Not worth your time.
