Bernard Goldberg takes dead aim at the America Bashers (the cultural elites who look down their snobby noses at "ordinary" Americans and detest so much of what this country is about)...the Hollywood Blowhards (incredibly ditzy celebrities who think they're smart just because they're famous)...the TV Schlockmeisters (including the one whose show has been compared to a churning mass of maggots devouring rotten meat)...the Intellectual Thugs (big-wigs at some of our best colleges, whose views run the gamut from left-wing to far left-wing)...and many more.

Goldberg names names, profiling the villains in his rogues' gallery, one by one, from 100 down to 1 -- and yes, you-know-who is #37. But Goldberg doesn't just round up the usual suspects we have come to know and detest. He also exposes some of the people who operate away from the limelight but still manage to pull a lot of strings and do all sorts of harm to our culture.

100 People Who Are Screwing Up America is about a country where as long as anything goes, sooner or later everything will go. Download and start listening now!

    " hmm . . . well, my dad passed along this book to me, so there is tentative red flag #1. however, i will say that it was rather enjoyable. it's not that i'm becoming more conservative in my "old age," but there is something appealing to me about this book as goldberg tackles both sides of the debate -- democrats vs. republicans; intellectuals vs. non-intellectuals (whatever that means); etc. he especially takes a close look at media moguls and figures, and holds them especially responsible for the pollution of American ideals and thoughts, as perceived by some. i guess i'm not too proud to say that i enjoyed this one. "

    " The catchy title caught my attention, along with a reviewer's comment: "uncommon sense about the things that have made this country great---and the culprits who are screwing it up." It is written in chapter form, some long, some very short, for each person, and clearly from a very conservative perspective. It includes people such as Al Sharpton, Barbra Steisand, Howard Dean, Dan Rather, John Edwards, Bill Moyers, John Kerry, Gloria Steinem, Ken Lay....the list goes on and on....100 names, in fact! Some interesting, some not. And not just politicians and liberal icons, but also celebrities and uber-liberal college professors. The top four on the list are: Michael Moore, Arthur Sulzberger, Ted Kennedy and Jesse Jackson....'nuf said. "

    " I agreed with some of his choices and reasons though his reasoning worldview has many holes. I wouldn't read it again nor would I really recommend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 1/29/2014

    " This is a good book to pick up when you only have a few minutes at a time to read something. Where no one will be able to agree with all 100 of Goldberg's picks, it is comical to see why and how he chose his top 100. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kendra Beth | 1/18/2014

    " If you enjoy Geingrich you'll enjoy Goldberg. Sorry if you find that statement offensive. The two men are very "passionate" and forceful in their opinions, and rather crude, in my opinion. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 1/17/2014

    " Good dose of what people need to hear, regardless of their political views. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill | 1/12/2014

    " I agreed with most of what the author said although some of the people I hadn't ever heard of. I do think its terrible the way the culture is changing. THe author talks about how a man on a crowded airplane used the f word and how people seem to think its okay. I'm not okay with it and I'm always offended when I hear it or read it. I wish there was a way to turn things around but I'm not sure there is. I not going to finish this book because its not really my style, just sort of discouraging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyra | 1/12/2014

    " I think this book touched on a few problems in america created by its occupents, it was a fun read. Goldbergs use of sarcasm was refreshing as most people take books like this too seriously. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Annie | 12/30/2013

    " I don't necessarily agree with every point Goldberg makes, but it was an entertaining read (die-hard liberals might want to ignore this one though!) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 12/23/2013

    " Missa, you've gotta read this, just because I want to have a discussion about how much you disagreed with everything Goldberg writes--particularly the chapter titled "Sex Warriors" about feminists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 12/20/2013

    " Very easy read and funny is you are conservative "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Regina Hunter | 12/16/2013

    " It is a funny book, but author is a victum of the same accusations he makes. Also research is incomplete and only focuses at fault of the subjects rathern than actually the "facts". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 12/13/2013

    " Great book by Goldberg...He is on the money with most on his list! A Must Read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K | 2/1/2013

    " Just a fun read. What the media won't tell about these 100. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 2/1/2013

    " Countdown of extreme individuals on both sides. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Johna K-w | 9/28/2012

    " The people he claimed to be ruining America was so funny. I cried I laughed so hard. In all honesty though, to delve into this book for a serious read would be unbearable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 6/15/2012

    " Love anything Bernie writes, he is smart and dead on. This is a quick fun read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Burke | 5/27/2012

    " Funny read, whether you are a republican or not. And he lists some conservatives as well. Funny stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy Pullen | 5/21/2012

    " A conservatives view of 100 people who are screwing up America. At the end he tells readers to make their own list. I agree with most of his choices however there are some different ones I would have added. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Schultz | 3/26/2012

    " Great commentary on influential people in this country. It's a great read regardless of your political affiliation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lauren | 2/15/2012

    " I read it because Barbara Kingsolver is #73. Nothing really ground-breaking or eye-opening so much as eye-rolling, but he has an opinion and I guess these days anyone can write a book and call people names. So's your face. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deuce Bigelow | 12/3/2011

    " a pretty decent read, even though it's a few years old. I really liked how he didn't go after all the obvious people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiona | 11/5/2011

    " Found this book at half price and decided to read it. It was actually interesting to me. I always wonder though why all of Americans can't just get along with one another and do away with the name calling on both sides. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey Smith | 8/26/2011

    " Don't read this if you are in any way sensitive about your political views. I found it hilarious (and pretty true most of the time). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Travis Doig | 7/13/2011

    " Bernie Goldberg tells it like it is. Enough said. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Faust | 6/25/2011

    " A fun book that roasts nincompoops on both sides of the political aisle (but mostly the left). The book was written in 2005 and could use an update. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anne | 2/6/2011

    " I thought this book was amusing and informative. I agree with all 100 people, although my order may have changed a bit. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 April | 1/29/2011

    " Interesting for awhile but the relentless focus on Liberal bashing made the guy lose some credibility with me, more balance would have been nice. I'm certain there are more than just the handful of the listed Conservatives screwing up America too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tak Yip | 1/25/2011

    " This book is an absolutly awesome book who's authour is not afriad to voice out his opnion on who are screwing up America. This list includes famous actors and actresess, presidents (fairly obvious who), singers and idols (too bad this book was published in 2005 and so is slightly outdated). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 the duchess | 1/25/2011

    " Blood will shoot out of your eyes by page 72. You'll need rehab, a cupcake, and Dionne Warwick's Psychic Friends Network to find hope again for all mankind. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 10/20/2009

    " Yeah, it's very conservative. You know that going into it, but I do admire some of the points made. The Hollywood jokers and athletes on the list are just that...jokers. They don't need to be here because, Latrell Sprewell's actions really don't matter that much in the grand scheme if things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tiona | 4/18/2009
