"Ken Stern did a gutsy thing, poking his head outside his own bubble, and then inhaling. His chronicle of discovery of how the other (political, cultural) half lives is honest, insightful, cheerfully self-deprecating, and quite often hilarious."--JOHN DONVAN, bestselling author of In a Different Key: The Story of Autism and host of Intelligence Squared US
"Republican Like Me is a marvelous book--engaging and thoughtful, timely and textured, a model for how to approach politics in this angry and polarized age. Ken Stern is a liberal who decided to spend a year understanding conservatives rather than demeaning them. The result is fascinating journey, told through stories, analysis, and evidence. It is a humanizing and generous book, showing us that our political opponents need not be our political enemies. Sometimes we can even learn from them. Whether you're on the Left or the Right, you'll be smarter and wiser after reading Republican Like Me. Ken Stern was changed in the course of writing this book. You'll be changed by reading it."--PETER WEHNER, senior fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center; contributing opinion writer for the New York Times; senior adviser in the George W. Bush White House
