By Peter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on Sept. 9 2006
Format: Paperback
This expanded paperback edition of the bestseller now includes 10 additional wreckers, including Ramsey Clark, Fred Phelps and the five Supreme Court judges who handed down the eminent domain ruling that facilitates the expropriation of private land.

The book is an addictive read that inspires emotions ranging from incredulity, shock and amusement to disgust, revulsion and sadness at the plight of the victims. Fortunately Goldberg's witty observations mostly succeed in serving as antidote to the disturbing revelations.

The author identifies the problem in the introduction: society has become indiscriminately tolerant of bad behaviour. The pendulum has swung from judgmentalism to the unquestioned acceptance of the vulgar, the nasty and the downright evil. Most decent people seem to be too intimidated to complain or resist.

In the introductory chapters, the types of characters that make up the list are discussed by category. These comprise America Bashers, Hollywood Blowhards, TV Schlockmeisters, News Division Schlockmeisters, Rap Musicians, Trial Lawyers, Multicultural Relativists, Racial Enforcers, White Collar Thugs, Sex Warriors and Radicals writers.

Some entries on the list are dismissed with a single word (Courtney Love) or a sentence (Michael Jackson), whilst others comprise up to five pages. Certain entries are titled by characterization instead of name, like The Dumb Celebrity (Cameron Diaz), The Vicious Celebrity (Alec Baldwin), and the Dumb And Vicious Celebrity (Linda Ronstadt). Malignant narcissism seems to the problem in many cases.

These comments refer to the audio book which, I believe, is abridged. I don't think reading the book would change my review. Since the audio book was read by the author, there is the advantage of hearing how he emphasizes certain words that provide subtle, subliminal and, possibly, unintentional clues to what he is saying

How serious can you take a book written in 2005 that purports to list the 100 people screwing up America but does not include even one conservative, one Republican or one white, fundamentalist Christian leader. That's right. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Robertson, Falwell and the rest are not on the list. If they are mentioned at all, it is only in terms of how the 'truly evil' people on the list are unfairly opposed to them and speak out against them. If Goldberg had his way, anyone with the audacity to oppose America policy, foreign or domestic, suggest that white Christian ethics (whatever that means) is not the one and only way to think or to challenge the office of the president at any level or on any policy would be shipped out of the country without having time to pack their bags. He makes the claim several times that only the conservative, Republicans are devoid of racial prejudice. He seems to mean every single one of them. By contrast, every single black leader and liberal proponent is a raging bigot. The saddest part of this book is that it was written before Obama gained national prominence. I think he easily would have claimed the number one position. The challenge in listening to this book is ' listening to this book'. I made it all the way through but not without effort. Some of the people he cites have done some bad things and it is not so much their inclusion that one objects to but the omission of those on the ideological 'other side'.

Bernard Goldberg attempts to accomplish what many have on both sides of the political spectrum, take aim at figures who distort facts, spew idiocy or hatred and are just a liability to society as a whole (as the author sees it anyway). This seems a risky endeavor, as I believe almost no reader will agree with Goldberg's assessment of every person on the list, as Goldberg himself admits. While there are those who would passionately defend Michael Savage or Al Franken or any number of self-professed experts, analysts or celebrities on both sides of the political spectrum masquerading as humans with a working brain, this book is an interesting and often insightful read (Who knew Al Sharpton was a pompous anti-Semite?).

4.0 out of 5 stars Won't Please Everyone- but a good read July 25 2006
By Van Gogh - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Overall, this is a pretty good book. Definitely good for some laughs and for making one aggravated at the hypocrisy of many of those profiled. Most Democrats and liberal leaning folks will find fault with Goldberg's choices for his list, but I think he reasons each one out fairly well. As he states in his prologue, any type of "list" is subjective and no one is ever going to agree 100% with the author's choices. No doubt, Goldberg leans right, but he is fairly middle of the road politically. Conservatives are not left unscathed and many of Goldberg's choices are people I don't necessarily associate with any political philosophy other than self aggrandizement and greed at others' expense. Overall a good book, an entertaining read which makes some good points- but don't expect to agree totally with the author regardless of your political persuasion.

Great book.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good book Sept. 18 2005
By R. H. Booth - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a good read. Some of the people mentioned are not well known, so I cannot comment on their appearance in the book, but I certainly agree with Goldberg on those whose names I do recognize, although not always in the sequence that he places them. Still, Goldberg points out the absurd conduct of a lot of the bad actors in our country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Political Incorrectness May 19 2008
By Jerome - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is my kind of book. A brief look at a few of the idiots that make life in the great USA burdensome. It will provide plenty of ammo for discussion with your liberal friends. You will need it because every time you provide them with the facts, if they are like my liberal friends, they will quickly change the point of reference and try to get you on something else, much like the person who finds Jesus and quickly becomes a religious know-it-all. Buy the book and savor the humor and insight. This is not what you would consider a scholarly work but it adds to the ongoing political discussion. Who knows, if you read it with an open mind, you may even become more conservative!

5.0 out of 5 stars Exposure of the Behind the Scene...Vast Left Wing Conspiracy July 26 2006
By J. P. Ledbetter - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great book, just what everyone looks for when someone is listing all of those who make or break our country.

Some of the other books along these same lines make the individual evaluations go on and on and on but Bernard has kept it short and to the point.

"Just the facts ma'am" and this made it much easier and enjoyable to find out who all those ultra-liberal (or as Chris Matthews says "Neo"-Liberal) backers of the decline and fall of the American culture are.

I have to thank Bernard Goldberg for this book because most of us only recognise those "Marketers of Evil" who we see on the TV or hear on the radio and this work opens our eyes to the scores of others in the Demonic Party who tell or insist that we "Do As I Say...Not as I Do".

A good, quick and informative read for anyone looking for the "rest of the story" as Paul Harvey says.
