Reich demonstrates how far the radical conservative agenda is from representing the national will, and explains how American liberalism can, and must, become once again ascendant in American politics.
"His experience as a government appointee gives him credibility; his experience as a TV and radio pundit gives him considerable style as narrator. Blessed with a pleasant voice, he reads expressively." (AudioFile)

"Reason" by Robert Reich changed my life. I am a Liberal. I was raised Southern Baptist, but, even as a child, conservative views didn't make sense to me. The conservative agenda is now and has always been counterintuitive to everything The United States of America stands for: freedom, justice, democracy, security, a decent quality of life and the rule of law for all. Consequently, I've always been baffled how a few rich, powerful, corporate-backed conservative demagogs can so easily con massive numbers of Americans, whose lives would obviously be better served by Liberal programs, into embracing the virulent Far-Right's radical views and do their bidding. Robert Reich explains how we arrived at this historical low-point with such thoughtfulness and clarity that I am forever altered and eternally grateful to him.

This a book both liberals and conservatives should read. It explores the significance of liberalism though historical context and its relevance to present day. It also provides examples of issues through personal stories and insight. I recommend it to anyone curious to learn more about the "left", and perhaps discover a few things about their own views.
