Smart people know that a good book makes a great gift, especially these ones, which I highly recommend:
* “The Oslo Syndrome: Delusions of a People Under Siege” by Kenneth Levin. This book should be required reading for Abu Spielberg and everyone connected with the shameful movie, “Munich.” This book is the antidote to that movie. Anyone who wants to understand what NOT to do with terrorists, should read this book, by a Harvard psychiatrist. If you’re a jilted lover who’s repeatedly begged to be taken back by an abusive boyfriend, you are experiencing the “Oslo Syndrome.” The constant sickness of trying to be loved by terrorists who never will–that is the essence of the “Oslo Syndrome.”
* “Why We Rule! 101 Great Reasons to Love Our Country” by Rob Cohen and David Wollock–An easy to read book of Americana and pop-culture and what makes America great, regardless of your political persuasion. Excellent illustration of why other countries will never be as good as ours. Lists, pictures, and graphics. A great, fun read and resource.
* “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (And the Crusades)” by Robert Spencer (AND ANYTHING ELSE BY SPENCER)–a great paperback that tells you everything you need to know about Islam. Great gift for misguided relatives who think Islam is the Religion of Peace.
* “Tricky Dick and the Pink Lady : Richard Nixon vs Helen Gahagan Douglas-Sexual Politics and the Red Scare, 1950” by Greg Mitchell–a great political book about Richard Nixon’s savvy 1950 campaign in California.
* “From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict over Palestine” by Joan Peters–anti-Israel journalist sets out to write pro-Palestinian book, but her research changes her tune. Timeless book that’s so good, the book was plagiarized by Alan Dershowitz for his “The Case for Israel” book. Read it by the original author, Peters.
* “Pants on Fire: How Al Franken Lies, Smears and Deceives” by Alan Skorski–How one of the most obnoxious liberal personalities is also a big, fat liar; Written by a good personal friend of mine, whom I bullied into getting this book written.
* Anything by Mark Twain–my favorite American writer, whose work, wit, and wisdom are timeless and always entertaining.
* “Women’s Diaries of the Westward Journey” by Lillian Schlissel–Great excerpts from diaries of women pioneers during the Manifest Destiny period of our country–a very exciting time without feminist man-haters, gender-based affirmative action, and Cindy Sheehan. Women wore skirts, rode horses, and owned and used guns. A great book full of historical accounts from the Wild West that your daughters could learn from. And yes, I’m proud to say, the author is my distant cousin.
