Item Description...
Nationally syndicated talk-radio host and noted film critic Michael Medved has taken an extraordinary journey from liberal activist to outspoken conservative. Along the way he has earned millions of admirers--and more than his share of enemies--with his disarming wit and slashing arguments on issues of pop culture and politics.
In the candid, illuminating "Right Turns," Medved chronicles the lessons and adventures that changed him from a Vietnam protest leader to an optimistic promoter of American patriotism, from secularism to religion, from adventurous single guy to doting husband and father. He skewers leftist orthodoxy, revealing why the Right is right and why his former colleagues on the Left remain hopelessly wrong on every cultural, political, and social issue.

Great book!  Nov 12, 2008
This is a great book! I love the stories and the lessons that Mr. Medved gives in this book. It is very interesting and some parts are hilarious. The way Mr. Medved writes is also very witty and insightful.
What you'd expect from Medved: A great book!  Jul 16, 2008
I am a fan of Medved's radio show, and agree with most of his opinions, so it was interesting to see how he developed those views.
An amazing jewish republican transformation  Apr 20, 2008
Right Turns: From Liberal Activist to Conservative Champion in 35 Unconventional Lessons

What an amazing life story. What I found so profound, was my own life experiences, in going from a jewish democrat to jewish conservative republican.

I found his life story quite compelling, and inspiring, to help me find my own jewish identity.

Sadly, being a republican is highly discouraged as a jew. It's rather sad, there are no local places in Minnesota, where you can pray, and not have to worry about being silent, rather than being a part of a good community.

Thank you, Michael Medved, for such an inspiring and heart-warming autobiography.
Liberalism is a mental disorder.  Feb 2, 2008
Michael's book is an example of what happens when adolescents mature. When one starts working and has a family to support they cannot remain liberal unless they are insane. Liberalism is a mental disorder but it can be healed with the right amount of encouragement and soul searching by the sick one.
You'll be impressed, even if you don't agree with all the views  Dec 13, 2007
Heard Michael Medved read his autobiography, RIGHT TURNS:
impressed--though I don't agree with all his political beliefs.

Yet that's what makes the book so interesting; i.e., that
Medved gets you to think . . . he has always done that
for me, even since I started to watch him back when he reviewed
movies on PBS . . . his opinions were often funny, but they
were also much more honest than those of his colleague
Jeffrey Lyons (who could find something admirable in almost any
film). . . I also got a kick out of his "Golden Turkey Awards,"
presented to the very worst efforts in filmmaking.

When he described his early liberal leanings, I could
relate to much of what he said--particularly when he talked
about Allard Lowenstein, one of my political heroes . . . how
he transformed to become conservative kept my attention,
as did his becoming increasingly aligned with Orthodox
Judaism . . . and when he followed-up an unsuccessful
first marriage with a loving second one, I found myself
feeling glad for Medved.

Parts of RIGHT TURNS are funny; much of it is thought-provoking.
