A Book For You

I've read it, I enjoyed it, would you like it? The book is The Wrecking Crew by Thomas Frank. His previous book "What's the Matter with Kansas" explained why people voted against their own best interests. In his new book disucsses the rise to power of the conservative movement even though its goals and interests don't serve the the majority of voters. How they keep the government broken and what it all means for the coming election.

Bill Moyers and Thomas Frank

And the winner is, Bill W.

I'll take all requests for the book left in the comments during the next 24 hours, or so, and then use a random number generator to determine the winner. I'll then ship the book at my expense to the winner. The offer is limited to residents of the U.S. and Canada. My apologies to my good friends in other countries but the cost of shipments to other destinations is simply too high.

Note:The offer is open only to registered comments others will be ignored. Please make it clear if you want to be considered for the book or are just commenting.
