    Personally, I've always found a great deal of value and insight in Dinesh D'Souza's political and theological work. He is tremendously precise in his communication skills and makes a persuasive case for the position that he takes, whatever the position may be. With that being said, he ...

    Review in short: If you're looking for a book that marginalizes the effects of slavery on an entire race, shames you for thinking slavery was wrong, uses successful historical black figures as examples of why racism has never existed and slavery wasn't that bad, while ignoring all t...

    Dinesh D'Souza's work is of astounding fiber. I couldn't believe how well-researched and poignant each point was. Like a skilled orator, seemingly every claim he makes is more powerful and daunting than the last. By the time you are done reading your worldview should be changed forever...

    I picked up this book due to all the controversy surrounding it... from Costco's decision to remove it from shelves and then reversing their decision... to Google's failure to show movie times when searching for D'Souza's movie... to seeing Newspaper reviews slam it and individuals pra...

    I learned quite a bit from this book. The author does an awesome job of substantiating his claims. Put this on your "must read" list! ...

    D'Souza deconstructs the liberals' false arguments about just what an awful nation the United Stares is, & reminds us that we chose to come here to be free, not be be oppressed. A must read, & in fact should be required reading in any university history class. Highly recommende...

    Another winner by Dinesh D'Souza. I found this book full of critical thinking, sound arguments, and an extremely competent defense against modern progressivism in America. Definitely a must read if you're concerned about where America has been heading in recent years. ...

    Just started reading it, but wondering why this book will not come up under a search for "America" in Goodreads? Best selling author, current movie out? Interesting.... ...

    An insightful perspective deserving thoughtful consideration. For some readers, it will challenge a person's paradigm, for others it will verbalize intuition, but for all is is a worthwhile read. 1776 or 1968, our choice! ...

    A powerful, patriotic defense of American history against the liberal critique of America as a force of evil in the world. ...

    Best history lesson ever! I think everyone should read this book. It's very well researched, every point is poignant - it made me think. ...

    D'Souza does a stellar job succinctly illuminating the ideological tug-of-war Americans currently face, capably defending the "spirit of 1776", America as she was designed from her inception to be, admitting and exploring her failures, celebrating her successes, and highlighting the da...

    This book has a powerful message This is a thought provoking book that discusses the decline of American values and American pride. He says the American dream is on the decline because some of the leaders are responsible for it. He observes that if this decline continues, then Unit...

    A must read. He is very pro-America, shouldn't we all be? ...

    D'Souza presents arguments for the 'other' side, the one we never hear about, and I have to say, they make sense. If you want to know the ideas from both sides, this book is a must-read. Actually, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from reading it. I LOVED the clear and bu...

    Dinesh outshines himself yet again. Talk about an American hero; he truly knows the capitialist, American system! His contrast with what we have or had depending on your perspective is stunning. He really takes a look at the system in place to demean this only system that has brought m...

    Dinesh's book is well written and, at times, frightening! It stands as a wake up call to all Americans to get our heads out of the dirt and take action by defending our moral values and world view that others can look up to. If things keep going the way that they do, we will live in a ...

    The author denounces the following points: - America is a nation of thieving and plundering. - Capitalism is framed as theft, that there are only makers and takers. - Wealth is not earned - Achievement is unearned. - The value of occupations is monetarily unbalanced. Thought I...

    First and foremost it should be said that Mr. D?Souza has a sophisticated literary style. He uses a level of language that is rare in today?s media and is almost an art form in its own right. If reviews and ratings were based solely on the eloquence of the author?s prose I would ...

    Judging from the title, I expected an exploration of how different world history would look had America never existed. In actuality, though, AMERICA: IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT HER does very little delving into hypotheticals. Instead, it gives a rousing defense of this country's founding,...

    It wasn't anything like I thought it would be from the title and from the movie preview I saw. I thought it would be an imagining of a kind of parallel earth where America never happened. Instead, it was a good text on parts of our history and about the value of our country. But I am d...

    Worthwhile reading - don't miss the movie ...

    I listened to this on audio and honestly think I am going to listen to it a second time. He put out a lot of historical facts about America, explaining many misconceptions along the way. I especially liked his argument for capitalism--made perfect sense. I was afraid this might be bori...

    I recommend this to everyone who is intrigued by the question posed by the author in the title: What if America had never existed? Unfortunately, we may soon experience the answer to that question as we have become a nation of materialists who have neither the time nor interest in doin...

    Doesn't deserve a rating. Absolute drivel... ...

    This book lost me straight away right in the introduction, when D'Souza mentions that the US risks becoming a "second Canada." I'm not really sure what he means; a country with a stable political system, growing economy, universal health care, higher gender equality and lack of ethno-r...

    America is worth saving. It is and has been the beacon of freedom for all and we need always to remember that we unhyphenated Americans, not Afro-Americans, not Asian-Americans, not Irish-Americans, etc. are the ones who have built this country and made it the great nation that it is. ...

    This is more of a 2.5 stars read. A couple of things: the narrator (Walter Dixon) read way too quickly. It was like he had another appointment soon and needed to hurry things along. It was distracting. The content was a little over the top. He made a number of blanket statements about ...

    Another winner by Dinesh D'Souza. I found this book full of critical thinking, sound arguments, and an extremely competent defense against modern progressivism in America. Definitely a must read if you're concerned about where America has been heading in recent years. ...

    Just started reading it, but wondering why this book will not come up under a search for "America" in Goodreads? Best selling author, current movie out? Interesting.... ...

    An insightful perspective deserving thoughtful consideration. For some readers, it will challenge a person's paradigm, for others it will verbalize intuition, but for all is is a worthwhile read. 1776 or 1968, our choice! ...

    A powerful, patriotic defense of American history against the liberal critique of America as a force of evil in the world. ...

    Best history lesson ever! I think everyone should read this book. It's very well researched, every point is poignant - it made me think. ...

    Personally, I've always found a great deal of value and insight in Dinesh D'Souza's political and theological work. He is tremendously precise in his communication skills and makes a persuasive case for the position that he takes, whatever the position may be. With that being said, he ...

    Review in short: If you're looking for a book that marginalizes the effects of slavery on an entire race, shames you for thinking slavery was wrong, uses successful historical black figures as examples of why racism has never existed and slavery wasn't that bad, while ignoring all t...

    Best history lesson ever! I think everyone should read this book. It's very well researched, every point is poignant - it made me think. ...

    D'Souza does a stellar job succinctly illuminating the ideological tug-of-war Americans currently face, capably defending the "spirit of 1776", America as she was designed from her inception to be, admitting and exploring her failures, celebrating her successes, and highlighting the da...

    This book has a powerful message This is a thought provoking book that discusses the decline of American values and American pride. He says the American dream is on the decline because some of the leaders are responsible for it. He observes that if this decline continues, then Unit...

    A must read. He is very pro-America, shouldn't we all be? ...

    D'Souza presents arguments for the 'other' side, the one we never hear about, and I have to say, they make sense. If you want to know the ideas from both sides, this book is a must-read. Actually, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from reading it. I LOVED the clear and bu...

    Dinesh outshines himself yet again. Talk about an American hero; he truly knows the capitialist, American system! His contrast with what we have or had depending on your perspective is stunning. He really takes a look at the system in place to demean this only system that has brought m...

    Dinesh's book is well written and, at times, frightening! It stands as a wake up call to all Americans to get our heads out of the dirt and take action by defending our moral values and world view that others can look up to. If things keep going the way that they do, we will live in a ...

    The author denounces the following points: - America is a nation of thieving and plundering. - Capitalism is framed as theft, that there are only makers and takers. - Wealth is not earned - Achievement is unearned. - The value of occupations is monetarily unbalanced. Thought I...

    First and foremost it should be said that Mr. D?Souza has a sophisticated literary style. He uses a level of language that is rare in today?s media and is almost an art form in its own right. If reviews and ratings were based solely on the eloquence of the author?s prose I would ...

    Judging from the title, I expected an exploration of how different world history would look had America never existed. In actuality, though, AMERICA: IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT HER does very little delving into hypotheticals. Instead, it gives a rousing defense of this country's founding,...

    It wasn't anything like I thought it would be from the title and from the movie preview I saw. I thought it would be an imagining of a kind of parallel earth where America never happened. Instead, it was a good text on parts of our history and about the value of our country. But I am d...

    Worthwhile reading - don't miss the movie ...

    I listened to this on audio and honestly think I am going to listen to it a second time. He put out a lot of historical facts about America, explaining many misconceptions along the way. I especially liked his argument for capitalism--made perfect sense. I was afraid this might be bori...

    I recommend this to everyone who is intrigued by the question posed by the author in the title: What if America had never existed? Unfortunately, we may soon experience the answer to that question as we have become a nation of materialists who have neither the time nor interest in doin...

    Doesn't deserve a rating. Absolute drivel... ...

    This book lost me straight away right in the introduction, when D'Souza mentions that the US risks becoming a "second Canada." I'm not really sure what he means; a country with a stable political system, growing economy, universal health care, higher gender equality and lack of ethno-r...

    America is worth saving. It is and has been the beacon of freedom for all and we need always to remember that we unhyphenated Americans, not Afro-Americans, not Asian-Americans, not Irish-Americans, etc. are the ones who have built this country and made it the great nation that it is. ...

    This is more of a 2.5 stars read. A couple of things: the narrator (Walter Dixon) read way too quickly. It was like he had another appointment soon and needed to hurry things along. It was distracting. The content was a little over the top. He made a number of blanket statements about ...

    Highlights from America and Points to Ponder: ?Unfortunately some of our wealth creation is going to our debtor nations of China and Arab nations ?Tocqueville was struck by how Americans look to themselves rather than the government; now that pattern is reversed ?America is de...

    If you follow the conservative news outlets on a regular basis, I don't think you'll be getting too much new information or ideas here in this book. But what is good about his book is that he puts all that information into one place and repackages it with his personal touch and a few a...

    Best history lesson ever! I think everyone should read this book. It's very well researched, every point is poignant - it made me think. ...

    D'Souza does a stellar job succinctly illuminating the ideological tug-of-war Americans currently face, capably defending the "spirit of 1776", America as she was designed from her inception to be, admitting and exploring her failures, celebrating her successes, and highlighting the da...

    This book has a powerful message This is a thought provoking book that discusses the decline of American values and American pride. He says the American dream is on the decline because some of the leaders are responsible for it. He observes that if this decline continues, then Unit...

    A must read. He is very pro-America, shouldn't we all be? ...

    D'Souza presents arguments for the 'other' side, the one we never hear about, and I have to say, they make sense. If you want to know the ideas from both sides, this book is a must-read. Actually, I can't think of anyone who wouldn't benefit from reading it. I LOVED the clear and bu...

    Dinesh outshines himself yet again. Talk about an American hero; he truly knows the capitialist, American system! His contrast with what we have or had depending on your perspective is stunning. He really takes a look at the system in place to demean this only system that has brought m...

    Dinesh's book is well written and, at times, frightening! It stands as a wake up call to all Americans to get our heads out of the dirt and take action by defending our moral values and world view that others can look up to. If things keep going the way that they do, we will live in a ...

    The author denounces the following points: - America is a nation of thieving and plundering. - Capitalism is framed as theft, that there are only makers and takers. - Wealth is not earned - Achievement is unearned. - The value of occupations is monetarily unbalanced. Thought I...

    First and foremost it should be said that Mr. D?Souza has a sophisticated literary style. He uses a level of language that is rare in today?s media and is almost an art form in its own right. If reviews and ratings were based solely on the eloquence of the author?s prose I would ...

    Dinesh D'Souza's work is of astounding fiber. I couldn't believe how well-researched and poignant each point was. Like a skilled orator, seemingly every claim he makes is more powerful and daunting than the last. By the time you are done reading your worldview should be changed forever...

    Doesn't deserve a rating. Absolute drivel... ...

    This book lost me straight away right in the introduction, when D'Souza mentions that the US risks becoming a "second Canada." I'm not really sure what he means; a country with a stable political system, growing economy, universal health care, higher gender equality and lack of ethno-r...

    America is worth saving. It is and has been the beacon of freedom for all and we need always to remember that we unhyphenated Americans, not Afro-Americans, not Asian-Americans, not Irish-Americans, etc. are the ones who have built this country and made it the great nation that it is. ...

    This is more of a 2.5 stars read. A couple of things: the narrator (Walter Dixon) read way too quickly. It was like he had another appointment soon and needed to hurry things along. It was distracting. The content was a little over the top. He made a number of blanket statements about ...

    Dinesh outshines himself yet again. Talk about an American hero; he truly knows the capitialist, American system! His contrast with what we have or had depending on your perspective is stunning. He really takes a look at the system in place to demean this only system that has brought m...

    Dinesh's book is well written and, at times, frightening! It stands as a wake up call to all Americans to get our heads out of the dirt and take action by defending our moral values and world view that others can look up to. If things keep going the way that they do, we will live in a ...

    The author denounces the following points: - America is a nation of thieving and plundering. - Capitalism is framed as theft, that there are only makers and takers. - Wealth is not earned - Achievement is unearned. - The value of occupations is monetarily unbalanced. Thought I...

    First and foremost it should be said that Mr. D?Souza has a sophisticated literary style. He uses a level of language that is rare in today?s media and is almost an art form in its own right. If reviews and ratings were based solely on the eloquence of the author?s prose I would ...

    Judging from the title, I expected an exploration of how different world history would look had America never existed. In actuality, though, AMERICA: IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT HER does very little delving into hypotheticals. Instead, it gives a rousing defense of this country's founding,...

    It wasn't anything like I thought it would be from the title and from the movie preview I saw. I thought it would be an imagining of a kind of parallel earth where America never happened. Instead, it was a good text on parts of our history and about the value of our country. But I am d...

    Worthwhile reading - don't miss the movie ...

    I listened to this on audio and honestly think I am going to listen to it a second time. He put out a lot of historical facts about America, explaining many misconceptions along the way. I especially liked his argument for capitalism--made perfect sense. I was afraid this might be bori...

    I recommend this to everyone who is intrigued by the question posed by the author in the title: What if America had never existed? Unfortunately, we may soon experience the answer to that question as we have become a nation of materialists who have neither the time nor interest in doin...

    Doesn't deserve a rating. Absolute drivel... ...

    Personally, I've always found a great deal of value and insight in Dinesh D'Souza's political and theological work. He is tremendously precise in his communication skills and makes a persuasive case for the position that he takes, whatever the position may be. With that being said, he ...

    Review in short: If you're looking for a book that marginalizes the effects of slavery on an entire race, shames you for thinking slavery was wrong, uses successful historical black figures as examples of why racism has never existed and slavery wasn't that bad, while ignoring all t...

    Dinesh D'Souza's work is of astounding fiber. I couldn't believe how well-researched and poignant each point was. Like a skilled orator, seemingly every claim he makes is more powerful and daunting than the last. By the time you are done reading your worldview should be changed forever...

    I picked up this book due to all the controversy surrounding it... from Costco's decision to remove it from shelves and then reversing their decision... to Google's failure to show movie times when searching for D'Souza's movie... to seeing Newspaper reviews slam it and individuals pra...

    I learned quite a bit from this book. The author does an awesome job of substantiating his claims. Put this on your "must read" list! ...

    D'Souza deconstructs the liberals' false arguments about just what an awful nation the United Stares is, & reminds us that we chose to come here to be free, not be be oppressed. A must read, & in fact should be required reading in any university history class. Highly recommende...

    Another winner by Dinesh D'Souza. I found this book full of critical thinking, sound arguments, and an extremely competent defense against modern progressivism in America. Definitely a must read if you're concerned about where America has been heading in recent years. ...

    Just started reading it, but wondering why this book will not come up under a search for "America" in Goodreads? Best selling author, current movie out? Interesting.... ...

    An insightful perspective deserving thoughtful consideration. For some readers, it will challenge a person's paradigm, for others it will verbalize intuition, but for all is is a worthwhile read. 1776 or 1968, our choice! ...

    A powerful, patriotic defense of American history against the liberal critique of America as a force of evil in the world. ...

    Best history lesson ever! I think everyone should read this book. It's very well researched, every point is poignant - it made me think. ...

    D'Souza does a stellar job succinctly illuminating the ideological tug-of-war Americans currently face, capably defending the "spirit of 1776", America as she was designed from her inception to be, admitting and exploring her failures, celebrating her successes, and highlighting the da...

    This book has a powerful message This is a thought provoking book that discusses the decline of American values and American pride. He says the American dream is on the decline because some of the leaders are responsible for it. He observes that if this decline continues, then Unit...

    This book lost me straight away right in the introduction, when D'Souza mentions that the US risks becoming a "second Canada." I'm not really sure what he means; a country with a stable political system, growing economy, universal health care, higher gender equality and lack of ethno-r...
