Quotes

  • “Because of too much TV and too little decent schooling, too many Americans are unread in the classics that have defined our culture. That’s why Wiker’s 10 Books Every Conservative Must Read is so important: it provides a shopping list for those who want to understand what makes America and the West exceptional.”

    - Brett M. Decker, editorial page editor, Washington Times
  • “Benjamin Wiker illuminates some of the great books of our civilization with an insightful simplicity that is not only breathtaking but potentially life changing.”

    - Joseph Pearce, author of biographies of Chesterton, Belloc, C. S. Lewis, and J. R. R. Tolkien

    " Obviously much more than a list, Wiker reviews the 10 books, and after defining the conservative weltenshaang, details why they uphold a conservative world view. Well done. I've put the books which I haven't yet read on my "to read" list. "
