Back Cover / Inside Flap:"Sean Hannity's first blockbuster book, the New York Times bestseller Let Freedom Ring, cemented his place as the freshest and most compelling conservative voice in the country. As the host of the phenomenally successful Hannity & Colmes on the Fox News Channel and The Sean Hannity Show on ABC Radio, Hannity has won a wildly devoted fan base. Now he brings his plainspoken, take-no-prisoners style to the continuing War on Terror abroad - and liberalism at home - in Deliver Us from Evil.

"Evil exists," Hannity asserts. "It is real, and it means to harm us." And in these pages he revisits the harsh lessons America has learned in confronting evil in the past and the present, to illuminate the course we must take in the future. Tracing a direct line from Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin through Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden, he reminds us of the courage and moral clarity of our great leaders. And he reveals how the disgraceful history of appeasement has reached forward from the days of Neville Chamberlain and Jimmy Carter to corrupt the unrepentant leftists of the modern Democratic Party - from Howard Dean and John Kerry to Bill and Hilary Clinton.

As Americans face the ongoing war against terrorists and their state sponsors around the world, Sean Hannity reminds us that we must also cope with the continuing scourge of accommodation and cowardice at home. With his trademark blend of passion and hard-hitting commentary, he urges Americans to recognize the dangers of putting our faith in toothless "multilaterlism" when the times call for decisive action. For only through strong defense of our freedoms, at home and around the world, can we preserve America's security and liberty in the dangerous twenty-first century."

Review:Let me let ya'll in on a little secret: I'm a moderate Republican. Not ultra-conservative - I don't toe the party line on every issue - but definitely not liberal and certainly not a Democrat.

Let me let ya'll in on another little secret: I love Sean Hannity and listen to his show daily on the radio. And I loved this book in my second reading in 2008 almost as much as I loved it in my first reading back in 2004 when it first came out.

Although many of the references are now "dated" - the 2004 election cycle is most definitely over and military strategies are a bit changed now versus then - it's still an entirely relevant reading to pull back the cloak on liberal lies in America. It's all-too-convenient for certain politicians to switch positions or claim sides after the fact, but Hannity's well-researched book holds to the facts. Why well-researched? Hannity references direct quotes - in context - from hundreds of bipartisan and non-political sources throughout his book, only lending creedance to his well thought out opinions on the state of American society.

No matter your political leanings, grab a copy of this book and read it with an open mind.
