A Great Place to Get Started

If you are looking for an overview of conservative philosophy this book would be the best place to start. A well-written and comprehensive overview of the most important conservative books (at least according to the author), this book has eye opening and rich content for anyone who thinks that conservative philosophy is just "free markets" and "small government". There is much much more than that to conservative thought and values; this book really gives an interesting overview. Who would have thought conservativism goes back over 2000 years! Nicely recorded and pleasant to listen to as well. 5 stars, get it!

One of the Best Overviews of Conservatism

This is one of the best overviews of conservatism I have ever read. It is fantastic, because it is not about modern politics and name-calling that are often heard, but the deep traditions that has formed the core of conservatism from Aristotle onward. A perfect book for someone who is a conservative, but never found the unifying threads that held it all together. Also great for any liberal who wants to understand what it is that conservatives are all about.
