Book Review: The Fight of Our Lives by William Bennett and Seth Leibsohn

Perhaps it was the fact that I read this book shortly after the death of Osama bin Laden, but I just couldn’t get in to it.  While I am definitely on the conservative side of the political spectrum, I found this book to be just laborious to wade through.  It’s not necessarily that I disagreed with everything that was being said, it’s just that it was not very interesting to read.  The book serves in many ways as an expose on liberal policies in regards to the War on Terror, but I can’t say it contained anything I hadn’t read or heard about before (if not in specifics at least in generalities).  It was overly predictable in its content.  Beginning to read it shortly after the death of Osama bin Laden very well could have tainted my view of it, since they spent a good deal of time talking about him and in my mind I was thinking, “This is outdated since the man is dead.”  I’ll give it 1.5/5 stars over all.

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
