Summary

Battle-scarred political warrior David Horowitz says it's time for conservatives to take the gloves off - and take our country back.

America is at a crucial turning point in its history, and Republicans have been losing ground to Democrats for too long. In Take No Prisoners, Horowitz sounds a clarion call for conservatives to use liberals' take-no-prisoners playbook against them. From his days as a founder of the radical New Left movement in the 1960s to his storied career as a leading conservative activist, Horowitz has a lifetime of experience in battleground politics. Now he lays out a winning political strategy for the Right that can save the country from sliding into economic and social ruin.

If conservatives want a better future for America, they need to be able to beat liberals at their own game - and David Horowitz is telling them how.

Great Insight

Great observation and advice for dealing with the loony left. The treacherous creatures on the left need to be attacked head on, and this book provides the information and inspiration for that.

He's right

David Horowitz is a great explainer. Even if you know relatively little about history and politics, you will know that what he saying here is right. He is the rare smart person who can explain things in easy to understand language. And he's right. As someone who, like Horowitz, moved from left to right as an adult, I can tell you that the most immediate realization that followed conversion was understanding for the first time just how much "liberals" have a completely false sense of moral superiority. Horowitz attacks Democrats where they should be attacked: on their horrible record at improving the lot of black people and poor people in the last 50 years. He connects the dots in undeniable ways. He correctly diagnoses that Republicans have given Democrats the moral high ground on race, poverty, and education, which is completely upside down when measured against reality. Read this book.

Bonus: The book appears to have been mostly written between 2000 and 2014. While that might appear to be a disadvantage and make it dated, it actually has exactly the opposite effect. Hearing what Horowitz says as of 2014 is a very interesting prism through which to see Donald Trump's candidacy.

Candidates must read

Every conservative candidate and campaign staffer should read, and re-read, this book. Mr. Horowitz knows the other side (he was one of them), and he has some great ideas on fighting back.

A must read for all conservative politicals

What did you love best about Take No Prisoners?

Horowitz has an insight to the mind and heart of the left like no other conservative. His intimate understanding of this provides invaluable insight that I wish we could impart into good candidates. It is information that needs to be absorbed if we ever want to win elections that don't accidentally fall into our laps. We conservatives naively want to continue trying to reach the liberal voter's center of reasoning with 'convservativethink', but it is speaking a language they don't understand. Horowitz outlines the 'why' and 'how' providing several 'Ah ha!' moments, and suddenly it will become clear to you why those mind numbing, frustrating debate attempts with your liberal friends and family never get anywhere.

No More Mr. Nice Guy

What did you love best about Take No Prisoners?

David calls out the Republicans for being too civilized. This is trench warfare and conservatives need to understand that others are defining us.

If you could give Take No Prisoners a new subtitle, what would it be?

Don't Bring a Knife to a Gunfight

Any additional comments?

Every conservative with an interest in politics must listen to this or read this book. Democrats lie, cheat and steal. Ann Coulter documents this in her books Mugged and Demonic.

Hit the nail on the head

I have no idea whether or not David Horowitz and Donald Trump know each other, and he never mentions Trump in this book. It was written before Trump ever announced for president. But if you told me that Donald Trump did not read it or help write it I would be amazed. He absolutely and perfectly defines everything about politics and each party perfectly.

FIGHT MARXISM

This wonderful book has never been more relevant. Fight for Liberty, and stand up to the corrupt Democrats that harm minorities and America as a slithering parasite hiding behind a shield of false virtue.

Get to the point

I understand how evil the liberals are. I get that. Most of the book drives that point.

The last 2 chapters address the premise of the book; how to deal with the dirty politics of the left. I was expecting more case studies of what the left does to get elected and strategies of how to fight it.

I was hoping for a more business like approach instead of an emotional lecture why the left is wrong.
