by Charles Krauthammer

Open iTunes to Buy

Description

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.

Dr. K is a man of great understanding of human behavior

Five stars!

Hammer time

When the Hammer talks in our house, we take pause to listen because he is refreshingly different from everyone else. He looks at situations from their foundation rather than from the rooftop and while everyone prefers the rooftop view many times, the doctor drills into the swampy mess that explains why the roof lines are crooked.
