Item Description...
Outline ReviewTwo-time presidential candidate Steve Forbes lays out his political vision in A New Birth of Freedom. Readers won't become very familiar with Forbes the man, but they will definitely get to know what Forbes thinks about the issues of the day. "Less government and more freedom" is the principle underlying most of his ideas, whether they involve the flat tax, health care, or Social Security. The book is detailed, but not overly so, and avoids becoming a mere laundry list of policy choices. Libertarians will be drawn to his economic ideas, and social conservatives will appreciate his chapter on "the moral basis of a free society." Forbes puts many of his best applause lines from speeches on these pages, but they will sound fresh and bold to those who haven't heard them before: "We can't tinker with this tax code monstrosity or try to reform it around the edges. The only thing we can do with this hideous beast is kill it, drive a stake through its heart, bury it, and hope that it never rises again to terrorize the American people." Forbes also takes a subtle swipe at Texas governor George W. Bush, his main competition for the Republican presidential nomination in 2000: "I come from a family of entrepreneurs and risk-takers--of tax-payers, not tax-raisers," he writes, hoping Republican primary voters will remember that his father, George Bush, broke his "no new taxes" pledge when he was president. If they do and pick Forbes, this book provides a good look at what to expect from the Forbes administration. --John J. Miller


Product Description
America today has the potential for the greatest economic boom and spiritual renewal in our history.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Steve Forbes accentuates the beauty of conservatism  Feb 2, 2004
The title of my review ought to paraprhase all the nice things I have to say about this book. Mr. Forbes is an eloquent writer, who glibly conveys his thoughts. Often, when people refer to the adjectives "conservative" and "liberal", they, quite understandably so, misconstrue their meanings to be "dogmatic" and "progressive". Not so. Steve Forbes believes in the inherent goodness of people, and is certain that when they're given more control of their own assets, they will direct it to good cause.
 
We Need Steve Forbes' America  May 11, 2002
Ronald Reagan restored to this nation a pride and integrity that has been failing at a catastrophic pace, with a lot of the credit going to the do little Clinton Administration. Our tax system must go, or Social Security system is on the brink of collapse and our Medicare and Medicaid policies are a joke.

Mr. Forbes nails almost everything in this book. From foreign policy to the morals of our youth, we are in need of total reform. We are on the wrong course and this book can act like the compass we need to guide us back.

The book does read a little like a political rally speech but Mr. Forbes speaks the truth. Read it as a handbook to a new America, the old America that we once new.

 
Read Forbes' 200-page platform?  Mar 13, 2002
Steve Forbes claims at the start of his book that the goal is to show how "we" can launch a new birth of freedom that will help all Americans achieve their dreams. He should have just come right out and say it: the goal of this book was to publicize Forbes' presidential platform!

I agree with most of Forbes' platform. In fact, initially I was dead set against a flat tax but Forbes' presentation actually got me thinking about the possibility. He is very good at explaining the simplicity of the tax, and it is quite compelling in that regard. Of course, multi-millionaires like Forbes would be the ones getting the biggest cuts.

In any event, this book is totally unnecessary. Forbes should have typed up a little brochure and spent his money on publicizing that instead of the book. The format of each chapter is quite consistent -- Forbes presents pages upon pages of background information to an issue, and then outlines his opinion/ideas. This makes for a slow (and often dull) read, as the introductory material is generic and most readers are probably aware of what Forbes outlines. This 200-page platform could definitely be edited down to a 20-page brochure.

I only recommend this book to the biggest Forbes' enthusiasts. My favorite part of the book did not even come from Steve Forbes, rather in a quote on success from his grandfather B.C. Forbes.

"Business was originated to produce happiness, not to pile up millions. Are we in danger of forgetting this? Too often in talking with so-called "successful" men I cannot but feel that they are making business an end and an aim in itself, that they regard the multiplying of their millions and the extension of their works as the be-all and end-all of life, life itself. ...They are so obsessed with the material that they cannot enjoy the immaterial, the intangible, the ideal, the spiritual -- quiet thought, self-communion, reflection, poise, inward happiness, domestic felicity..."

 
Excellent Insight on American Politics  Aug 25, 2001
I'm not a sharer of Steve Forbes political views. I didn't know much about his plan for the flat tax. But after reading this book that include letters that people wrote to him, I'm not sure that the flat tax is such a bad idea. Forbes also talks about the excellent health care system in Delaware and how all states in America should have a systems' like Delaware.The only problem with that is that Delaware is one of the smallest states in the nation and so its health care system is fairly easy to manage. You then take a state like California that is huge, it becomes much more difficult to model a system like Delaware's. Overall this is one of the top three presidential candidate books of the campaign season.
 
A valuable read, beats the 2000 presidential debates.  Oct 21, 2000
Steve Forbes lays out his political views in clear, persuasive prose. After reading this book, you cannot help but wish all the presidential candidates were required to write out their views on such wide ranging issues as taxes, government spending, education, the environment, etc., in such an accessible and readily available format. In his heart, Steve Forbes is an optimist and this trait is apparent throughout his book. This especially appeals to me, because I also portray an optimistic viewpoint in my own writings and lectures. In spite of his great wealth, he takes great pains to espouse an inclusive political stance, in the fervent belief that all Americans are entitled to health, happiness and prosperity. And you have to admire a guy who donates all the profits from his book to The Family Academy of Harlem, NY! Please read this book for at least two reasons. 1) I just watched all the presidential and VP debates, and I get more substance on actual policies from this ONE book. 2) If you read this book, you will understand that here is a person who wants to live up to the noble American ideal of performing public service, even at great cost to himself.
