Product Description
From America's preeminent columnist, named by the Financial Times the most influential commentator in the nation, the long-awaited collection of Charles Krauthammer's essential, timeless writings.

A brilliant stylist known for an uncompromising honesty that challenges conventional wisdom at every turn, Krauthammer has for decades daz­zled readers with his keen insight into politics and government. His weekly column is a must-read in Washington and across the country. Now, finally, the best of Krauthammer's intelligence, erudition and wit are collected in one volume.

Readers will find here not only the country's leading conservative thinker offering a pas­sionate defense of limited government, but also a highly independent mind whose views-on feminism, evolution and the death penalty, for example-defy ideological convention. Things That Matter also features several of Krautham­mer's major path-breaking essays-on bioeth­ics, on Jewish destiny and on America's role as the world's superpower-that have pro­foundly influenced the nation's thoughts and policies. And finally, the collection presents a trove of always penetrating, often bemused re­flections on everything from border collies to Halley's Comet, from Woody Allen to Win­ston Churchill, from the punishing pleasures of speed chess to the elegance of the perfectly thrown outfield assist.

With a special, highly autobiographical in­troduction in which Krauthammer reflects on the events that shaped his career and political philosophy, this indispensible chronicle takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the fashions and follies, the tragedies and triumphs, of the last three decades of American life.

5 Stars!
  Everett D. (CUMBY, TX) on January 07, 2015
The book was not what I expected. Mr. Krauthamer does not write like he talks. When he talks, he is easily understood and is captivating. When he writes he sends you to the dictionary. Your vocabulary will soar and you will probably learn words you will never use. But, that's not what I wanted from his book. He needs to write like he talks.

It was outstanding
  Balfour K. (Hofit, Israel) on October 28, 2014
Charles Krauthammer's book "Things That Matter" is a gift for anyone who cares for his country and it's values. I have received it just a week ago and I'm reading it with great pleasure because it reminds me that we, as Israelis, are sharing the same values. No wonder it's a best seller for a long time.
