Fantastic and, more important, intellectually honest. I only disagree with the title. Keith didn't leave the left, they left him, and other classical liberals, a long time ago. -- Rusty Humphries, nationally syndicated radio talk show host
As a former liberal myself, I commend Keith Thompson for having the courage to see the world as it really is instead of how liberals want it to be. His transformation makes me proud to know him. -- La Shawn Barber, Blogger, "La Shawn Barber's Corner"
Honest, funny, smartly empirical, and compulsively readable . . . a book that will appeal not just to conservatives but to all Americans who don't think Nancy Pelosi and her ilk know what's best for the nation. -- Brian C. Anderson, author of South Park Conservatives and senior editor of City Journal
I read Keith's book and realized I'd traveled the same path. I never knew being a liberal meant selling out my country or finding phony common cause with murderers. There are millions of us too. Thanks, Keith, for helping us stand up. -- Phil Hendrie, nationally syndicated radio show host
It's a conservative's fantasy to imagine that a Senate staffer for a leading liberal (Metzenbaum) was secretly absorbing common sense for years until he could not take it anymore and broke with liberalism. That's what Keith Thompson actually did, and he relates it all now with verve and conviction. He is most welcome to the fold! -- Mona Charen, author Do-Gooders: How Liberals Hurt Those They Claim to Help (and the Rest of Us)
Keith Thompson has written an arresting and witty memoir of the follies of the left. You don't want to miss it. -- David Horowitz, author of Radical Son: A Generational Odyssey
Keith Thompson takes readers through the most important moments in recent political history and exposes how liberals have abandoned principles such as equality, individual rights, and political freedom. . . . Leaving the Left is a timely and important book. -- Carrie Lukas, Independent Women's Forum
Keith Thompson's refreshingly candid admissions about the plain and simple wrongness of the left ring with the sincerity of a genuine convert and will make conservatives stand up and cheer. Welcome to the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, Keith! -- David Limbaugh, author of Persecution: How Liberals Are Waging War Against Christianity
