5.0 out of 5 stars mark of excellence 20 Dec. 2002
By bill katovsky - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
he tosses off verbal zingers with the very best, offering pungent commentary with satirical jabs. i consider him a more erudite version of p.j. o'rourke--and not as mercilessly cynical. i often find myself laughing out loud reading steyn--my brother in england would often email his u.k. columns. but it's not sophomoric humor that engages steyn's wit; he's high-brow the entire way. it would be okay to label him an iconoclast simply because his take is often in opposition to conventional opinion and what passes for wisdom. steyn puts to shame all the muttering pundits who perform combat duty at the major mags and newspapers. perhaps frank rich is in his league, but i wouldn't trade steyn for the top draft pick, ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious, savage, and moving 25 Oct. 2003
By L O'connor - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've been a fan of Mark Steyn's brilliant column in the Telegraph for years now, it's great to finally have a book of his wonderful articles. These articles covera year from September 11 2001 to September 11 2002, and are all entrhalling to read. On the subject of September 11 he is deeply moving, his articles on this subject brought tears to my eyes. he can just as easily make you laugh, he's hysterically funny on the subject of the 'brutal Afghan winter' among other things. This book is brilliant and fascinating, there isn't a dull sentence in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb 20 Dec. 2003
By Susan Norton - Published on
Format: Paperback
Mark Steyn is a superb writer and stylist, a master of dazzling verbal pyrotechnics. More than that, he's on the good side! These columns are a delight to read and full of good sense as well. Steyn proves mastery of style and subject-matter is not dead. Like PJ O'Rourke, he redeems the name of jourmalism. Buy this collection, not only for your own edification and delight (as well as rage!) but to show your children a scintillating portrait of our strange times in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars To the Bone 30 Sept. 2005
By J H - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Steyn is a supurb polemicist -- sharp unto the dividing of joints and marrow. There isn't a false note in his prose, and even if you don't subscribe to his warmongering right-wing madman bigotted homophobic ... am I leaving anything out? -- I quote from memory his own self-description ... oh! intolerant views, you can still admire the clarity and self-assurance of his style.

My own wonderful son is now serving in the US military, and I'm sending him my copy of Steyn's book, just to help my own wonderful son (do I repeat myself? I am vast!) stay focused on the whole point: if it is to be Jihad vs Crusade (and it seems that it is), we have to know which side of the line ... or should I say "razor" ... we're on ... or should I say "box-cutter"?

There is a folk tale, variously attributed, about the fox that is persuaded to carry a scorpion on its back across a river. "Oh, I surely will not strike you with my venomnous tail," assures the scorpion, "for then I too would drown." But halfway across, the scorpion does indeed sting the fox, and as they both flounder, the fox reproaches the betraying creature. Its reply came thus: "It is true that I too shall perish. But I am a scorpion, and to strike is my nature." How Islam is practiced by the vast majority of its adherents is as it may be. But its nature is Jihad.

In any case, Steyn is laugh-out-loud funny, and there is hardly a page that doesn't have some master-trope that just makes you shake your head and wish you'd thought of it first (I just pretend to myself that I did). It may be that even those on the far left would be convinced, if such a thing were possible. In short, a whole-hearted recommendation ... and did I mention my son is wonderful?

5.0 out of 5 stars A breath of fresh air 28 Nov. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Particularly here in the People's Republic of Canada. Alas, Steyn, a Canuck, is no longer writing for that steadily deteriorating rag, the National Post (he was the main reason I subscribed). Fans should not despair, however, as you can head on over to his Web site at [...] for a weekly booster shot. (Note: If you order this book directly from his Web site, you can get an autographed copy for the same price that you will pay at Amazon!) The power, eloquence and razor-sharp incisiveness of Steyn's wit and writing are refreshing and will have you saying "Right-on, brother!" every few sentences! He regularly exposes the feeble-minded, politically-correct dunces of the left (in Canada we call them "Liberals" and "New Democrats") for what they truly are. That this brilliant guy no longer has a column in his native Canada says all you need to know about the state of affairs in this country. Needless to say, he is roundly reviled here (and especially in Moscow North--Ottawa). As far as I am concerned, that is a strong sign that he is doing something right!
