Thought provoking, even when disagreeable
I've become quite a fan of Frum from his well reasoned commentaries on Marketplace, so I thought I'd give his book a listen.
While it's now clear to me that the author and I have many differing opinions, he has done a nice job challenging Americans to come up with better solutions to many of the problems with which we've thus far dealt unsuccessfully. His book also helps non conservatives get a better understanding of the conservative agenda.
In the end I found the author a little too trigger-happy, a little too naive that the theory marriage begets well adjusted children is causation and not simply correlation, and a little too hypocritical that the American family should be strengthened but should not include homosexuals. But even as a non conservative I value several of his other ideas.

A brilliant exegesis of the current state of our Country. A must read for all who love America and who want to restore her greatness. Mr. Frum clearly and concisely analyzes what has brought conservative ideals to the point of collapse in the United States. He does so by addressing the obstinate and unabashed mistakes and miscalculations of, in particular, President Bush and his allies. Mr. Frum puts a clear face on the pie-in-the-sky fantasy rhetoric of liberals and its destructive effect on all Americans; especially, the working class. Hopefully this book can change attitudes, put America first and give the reader what they seek – a clear vision of the future of our country and a conservative unity that crosses all political affiliations.
