I decided to pick up an earlier Michael Savage book, "Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder," last week. I have already finished reading it, which is remarkable considering all of the homework that is piling up. I have to say I got what I expected out of this book. In the usual Savage Truth-style, Dr. Savage uses well researched information to explain the issues that are corrupting and endangering our country. The end result comes together to show the unbelievably ill-conceived behavior of the American left. Their hatred of America and her values that makes this country great is put under Savage's magnifying glass and shown to be the disease it really is.
Also in his usual style, Michael Savage includes a few of his personal stories to draw parallels to his points. The one that stands out is the story about "Sam the Butcher." Savage tells his readers about walking to the local butcher with his aunt. Sam is described as a nice man who knows most of his usual customers (a stark difference compared to today according to Mike). However, he and his aunt begin to suspect they were not getting the prime meat that his aunt payed for. His aunt returns to the butcher and enters the back room to be sure that she was getting the real deal. Indeed, Aunt Savage's meals tasted better after confronting Sam. This story is used perfectly to show to Savage's readers that just because someone can put on a good smile and remember your name doesn't mean that same person will not try to screw you over. This is just one of many of Michael Savage's great stories that only a man who has been around that block a few times could tell.
Overall, this book was a fun read and well worth the fifteen bucks I spent on it. I might have to pick up his other books, "the Savage Nation" and "the Enemy Within." Even though "Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder" is outdated in terms of current events (this book was written shortly after George W. Bush won a second term in office), the book is still quite relevant. The lessons and information contained within its pages are valuable regardless. I'll give this book four-and-a-half stars out of five.
