Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics

Charles Krauthammer

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.
 
Readers 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 indispensible chronicle takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the fashions and follies, the tragedies and triumphs, of the last three decades of American life.

Customer Reviews

Amazing book! Real page turner for me!

I've always liked this author as his deep understanding of complex matters are impressive enough! However, I love that he can articulate complex subjects in a way that the common citizen like me can readily understand.

As I read some of the chapters I thought to myself, "wow, Dr. Krauthammer sure has this issue pegged", only to find at the end he was addressing the subject 10-20 years BEFORE it came to be! To me, so many of his views and opinions over the years have been quite prophetic.

Bottom line for me? Great read covering a vast array of interesting subjects! Highly recommend!

#12 Reviewer is an idiot

Enough said.....

Some People!

The reviewer who complained about not receiving his download and gave Charles' book a 1 star, you're a moron! Call iTunes and straighten it out, don't blame the author for your incompetence. As for the other one star reviewer (William), you obviously do not know the importance of what matters and people like you are why our Country is so messed up.
