I am a liberal. I do not agree with Jeff Flake's economic philosophies and I am not a fan of Barry Goldwater, but Flake's championship of the Constitution, the rule of law, common decency, and fair play is inspiring.
Flake actually makes me believe bi-partisanship is not an impossible goal. He also humanizes conservatives for me in a way I much needed. Flake's voice is sincere, kind, intelligent, and he offers an argument for integrity that is most refreshing in our current political climate.
Critics from the Right call him a traitor for saying the Emperor has no clothes, critics from the Left call his effort hollow because he is not doing enough to stand up to the naked Emperor. I say this book is a BEGINNING, and it is a breath of fresh air in an overheated country.

What made the experience of listening to Conscience of a Conservative the most enjoyable?
Good narrator, concise verbiage, clean production.
What did you like best about this story?
I think that Flake honestly provides an assessment of his experience in congress and the senate that gives the public another perspective into how we got where we are right now. He doesn't paint himself as being blameless, or claim to have the power to change the situation easily. He shares a common sense approach for all Americans, founded by his conservative values. I lean liberal but believe Flake's desire is to serve all Americans and is worthy of being heard.
What does Milton Jeffers and Jeff Flake - preface bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I might be irritated if another narrator was not as good.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No, I appreciated that it seemed to be a calm assessment of one person's perspective.
Any additional comments?
I didn't find it preachy.
