Political commentator and bestselling author,* Patrick J. Buchanan,in his Foreword to the new book, said: "Sobran's voice was unique, his style readily identifiable, his wit irrepressible, his range as wide as that of any columnist of his generation."
Author of several bestselling books,* Ann Coulter,* described Sobran's writing in her Afterword to the book as follows: "Joe could say in a sentence what most writers would need an entire column to express. His specialty was to make blindingly simple points that would cut through mountains of sophistry."
Ronald Tacelli, S.J., of Boston College comments that "a whole new generation can now discover for itself that uniquely powerful, persuasive, elegant, trenchant - and hilarious - voice of his; a voice that speaks to us again in the pages of this marvelous book."
