100 People Who are Screwing Up America, by Bernard Goldberg

100 People Who are Screwing Up America…and Al Franken is #37 by Bernard Goldberg is a book that has a fairly equal balance of 5 Star and 1 Star reviews. Conservatives go out of their way to praise it. Liberals go out of their way to denigrate it. I don’t know if writing that kind of book is a great way to help the country, but it certainly gets one’s attention and drives books sales! If you came here for Scathing Reviews, this is the right book for it:

The 101st would be the one on the cover.

…and:

Blah blah blah liberals hate America blah blah gansta rap blah blah radical feminists blah blah token conservatives thrown into list to make it appear non-partisan blah blah in my day, things were different… blah blah traditional values. Blah.

…and:

This book is tailor made for those who subscribe to People magazine. This gossipy, nasty, vile spew comes from the mind of a troubled person who devoted precious months of his limited time on earth to vilifying a hundred people in print.

…and:

Sorry Bernie, but you made a terrible book. Stick to your Real Sports gig. You are great at that!

…and:

Goldberg doesn’t have any brainstorms here, just light drizzles. Put away the umbrella and the book.

…and:

He’s the right wing Eric Alterman……..that’s not a good thing.

…and:

If you feel uncomfortable having to think all the time, purchase this book and give yourself a brake.

…and:

The writing is also amateurish, filled with more nasty name-calling (even his so-called good friends don’t escape notice that yes, he is better than they are) and finger pointing than any real answers or revelations.

…and:

The whole enterprise struck me as pretty mean-spirited cut and paste job.

…and:

Sometimes I wonder why I force myself to read crap like this.

…and:

This book should be named “I’ll do anything to win the love and honor of the republican party.”

…and:

…a book written by a right-wing nut for other right-wing nuts.

Even so, one reviewer pointed out something that the majority of Americans can agree on:

But he is right on one hand… Barbara Streisand is REALLY screwing up America.
