    Goodall is a Communications Professor who sees the narrative of the extreme conservative right as effectively overtaking the American political and social landscape and challenges the progressive left to develop its own counter narrative to combat it The thesis of his book is well intentioned but in my view this becomes at times a personal rant that falls short of the goal its mark He makes a convincing case for the power of the right's message and shows how its myths and lies have captured the popular mind distrust of evolution unbelief in global warming belief in political myths like the need for less government and no taxes He proposes that progressives take on the pragmatic progressive narrative of Obama While there was much that was insightful in this book particularly his focus on narrative as an operational principle and his analysis of the Right's narrative in the end the book was depressing than inspiring and helpful He tries to position himself left of center but not extreme but given the failures of the Obama message in the last year since the book was written h is message rings hollow

    Having loved other writings by this author I was a bit disappointed with the name calling in this one It contradicted a call for civil dialogue That said he highlights a critical need for academicians to deliver good thinking skills to the future electorate with examples from contemporary civic life But an important part of that development is encouraging understanding in the case of difference rather than encouraging a demonized other or enemy I was hoping for a move to use narrative to promote civil vs polarized public discourse harder on issues and easier on people vs dismissing them as dumb asses It didn't uite get there
