Seattle Book Review:  "This book is like a gift packed with an exciting mix of things: facts and references, profound arguments, captivating characters, relatable experiences, and an addictive storyline."

Great Stupidity Cover Initial.jpg

"Laced with silly, irreverent humor, the book is a mix of Monty Python and Mel Brooks with comical anachronistic dialogue...squarely aimed at dogma and bigotry relevant to either side of today's political divide."
