Things That Matter

Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

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.

Great

If you've read any of his works, you know the book is great.

Great Read

I'm a fan. Glad to get more insight.

Charles will make you think!

When is the last time a book made you think; really think? Charles will make you think about our country, our politics, and your place in it.
Motivation, I feel, is an underlying subject in this book. Be a part of making America remain strong. Reject the notions of American decline. He doesn't say it in those terms, but forces you to connect to the positive intellectual process of discovering that we can keep the America, and world that we all know is still possible. He presents numerous outlines for this.
Logic; the halmark of Charles Krauthammer's presentations are represented here in full bloom. Who can do that in a period of thirty years of writings. Charles can!
Stay strong Charles, and keep educating us.....and the world.
