Reviews
Review Quotes
"Walter Williams makes sense. With academic credentials contributing depth to his conclusions, he commands respect. Now, in economics, politics, and social philosophy, we have a ready reference in his own words." -Paul Harvey
"Dr. Williams tells the truth. This alone makes him a huge threat to liberals. It also makes his writings an unparalleled soure of economic and cultural wisdom. Williams is a man of principle and good sense, a defender of freedom, and I am happy to be on his side. As should you." -Rush Limbaugh
"Here are some of the ideas and values that has made us the most free and most prosperous nation in human history-ideas and values we must recapture." -Dick Armey, United States Congressman
"Walter Williams is skeptical about government, skeptical about bureaucrats, and skeptical about politicians, but he's never skeptical about liberty. This collections of hard-hitting essays reflects a passionate commitment to freedom." -Phil Gramm, United States Senator
