Book Review Daniel Flynn Why the Left Hates America

Daniel Flynn has two excellent books and according to his site Flynn.Files is working on a third book but in the early stages. I will buy his third book as his two earlier books were wothwile . However Intellectual Morons is clearly the better book of the two. Why the left hates America is a great book but it repeats itself in places.

Flynn is a major talent that we should keep our eye on. His style is direct brutal and to the point. One will not find the eloquence of VS Naipul in his work.He also does not have Coulters caustic wit or her machine gun style. Far and away the best writing style is still that of Monica Crowley who hasn't written a book in years. Crowley's style is elegant but basic with a surprising sense of humor.

Why the Left hates America is a good book but Flynn is capable of much better . Some writers are one hit wonders and Flynn is clearly not that. Part of the problem of being an author is one competes against your other work. Flynn's best is still Intellectual Morons.

Interesting book, i would never read it, but that's ok.

Beak, wondering if you had read Horowitz new book "The Proffesors", having seen him on Hannity and Colmes last night, and seeing he seems like a fair guy, i thinking about buying it, let me know if its worth it though.

I will be getting an autographed copy from the author in the mail.
David Horowitz has been very generous to me and I have read all
of his books except this one.

I will be doing a review on this site and perhaps on Bad Eagle shortly.

Cool, i don't really buy into the Proffesors are evil thing, or to liberal, but the Horowitz sounds very interesting, and this book i may have some intrest in reading.
