    One reviewer above stated that this book and author is liberal and left. I beg to differ. These people and their characterizations are either and both conservative and liberal.

    This book exposes the motivations, character, foibles, flaws, and hubris of a number of influential persons in the liberal stable. What pleased me the most about the book was how well acquainted I felt with each person in such a short treatment. I was struck with the similarity in personality traits among the group and how the effects of their personal flaws have found their way into liberal doctrines and policies pursued by the left today. I found the book engaging and intellectually stimulating. It is intimate without being sordid. It takes a somewhat judgmental tone occasionally, but there is no sugar coating intellectual dishonesty and outright lying in order to promote an insidious cause. I very much enjoyed it
