From America's preeminent columnist, named by the Financial Times the most influential commentator in the nation, the long-awaited collection of Charles Krauthammer's essential, timeless writings.
A brilliant stylist known for an uncompromising honesty that challenges conventional wisdom at every turn, Krauthammer has for decades dazzled readers with his keen insight into politics and government. His weekly column is a must-read in Washington and across the country. Now, finally, the best of Krauthammer's intelligence, erudition, and wit are collected in one volume.
Listeners will find here not only the country's leading conservative thinker, offering a passionate defense of limited government, but also a highly independent mind whose views - on feminism, evolution, and the death penalty, for example - defy ideological convention.
Things That Matter also features several of Krauthammer's major path-breaking essays - on bioethics, on Jewish destiny, and on America's role as the world's superpower - that have profoundly influenced the nation's thoughts and policies. And finally, the collection presents a trove of always penetrating, often bemused reflections on everything from border collies to Halley's Comet, from Woody Allen to Winston Churchill, from the punishing pleasures of speed chess to the elegance of the perfectly thrown outfield assist.
With a special, highly autobiographical introduction, in which Krauthammer reflects on the events that shaped his career and political philosophy, this indispensable chronicle takes the listener on a fascinating journey through the fashions and follies, the tragedies and triumphs, of the last three decades of American life.

Charles K, author and narrator ..... enuf said
Great book, why did Krauthammer only read 1/2???
Krauthammer's text is incredible, and the half of the book that he personally narrates.
His logic is so clear... Wonderful cross between a great story teller and a brilliant observer of the world.
Charles SHOULD HAVE READ THE ENTIRE BOOK. Charles Krauthammer's voice versus Newbern's is like fine scotch versus rot gut whiskey... Fine wine vs. sour juice. I was extremely disappointed when the story changed over from Krauthammer to Newbern. Did I mention Krauthammer has an incredible and soothing voice that is perfect for the audiobook format?
The format makes the book fly by! The best of Krauthammer neatly packaged in one book, but for God's sake Mr. Krauthammer narrate the ENTIRE BOOK.
