  • “One of the best political memoirs I have ever read.”

    P. J. O’Rourke

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carmen | 1/19/2014

    " An utterly fascinating and engrossing account of personal awakening and transformation. The book was somewhat slow to start but once his tales of Columbia and Berkeley started, the momentum to the inevitable crash started to gain. Most intriguing was the role of human nature versus intellect and how they both compete and inform identity and political philosophy. Ultimately, everything always and finally comes back to family. Honest and unsparing, this book will most likely remain in my mind for a while. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don | 1/15/2014

    " A fascinating book -- complementary to that of Ronald Radosh. Horowitz is a very angry man but that doesn't lessen the keenness of his insights. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 1/15/2014

    " This was a good trip through political history for me. I wasn't very familiar with the politics of the 60's or the Black Panthers so it gave me a good look at things. It did contain some curse words occasionally which were somewhat offensive. Too bad people have to use such base language when they are not well educated (most of it I think was used by people of less than desirable upbringing). It was enjoyable to see how the author changed his views over time. "

    " I great story about transformation. "

    " Excellent round up of the radical left by a former member. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karyn | 12/23/2013

    " This is a fabulous book! It keeps your attention from start to finish with a lot of firsthand truths that will shock you. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in knowing the truth from someone that's been on both sides of the political spectrum. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charmaine Anderson | 6/8/2013

    " If you ever wanted to know what happened on the radical left during the 60's this is your book. Horowits was there on the front lines and has remarkable insight and knowledge into what went on. I found this book very compelling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 T.l. Blankenburg | 4/17/2013

    " Conservatives and liberals alike should read this book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 3/27/2013

    " The book has cemented my political bent. Horowitz is still taking a risk telling his story - from Black Panther activist to conservative author and radio TV commentator. "

    " It is a good biography on the 60's. I am not fan of Horowitz. He is a pretty horrible guy but this is worth the read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris Hunt | 6/23/2012

    " I had this book on my bookshelf for years before finally reading it. I was excited to finally read it. Unfortunately, though, while I think it's a very important book for its history, the fine and seemingly infinite details were sheer drudgery and I barely made it to the finish line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 9/19/2011

    " One of the most powerful and introspective Auto Biographies I have ever read. Horowitz is a great writer with a deeply introspective style which he focuses on his flaws as much if not more than his successes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 7/24/2011

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Moses Operandi | 7/2/2011

    " This was a bitter, realistic, and truthful memoir of the depravity of the New Left movement in America, from the founding in the Marxist 30s to the smoky ashes after the draft was repealed. I admire Horowitz greatly. "
