The Politically Incorrect Guide to The Founding Fathers

I listened to the audiobook version of "The Politically Incorrect Guide to The Founding Fathers". It currently has 5 stars from 5 Amazon reviewers. I liked this book. It's loaded with interesting information, most of which was not included in my public school education.

Here are some of the review comments from the back cover:

"Brion McClanahan does far more than merely rehabilitate the Founders. In his devastating and relentless presentation, he reminds us, on one issue after another, how utterly opposed they were to what has since become fashionable opinion. Here's the stuff our competent historians know but would rather you didn't."
--Dr. Thomas Woods, author of New York Times bestsellers Meltdown and The Politically Incorrect Guide to American History

"Brion McClanahan's bang-up new book gives us the Founding Fathers as they really were, providing what intelligent readers of history want: the plain truth. In short, the men who made the USA deserve our admiration, and McClanahan's fascinating account shows just why."
--Dr. Kevin Gutzman, author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution

"The American history profession ignores or denigrates our founding fathers because they were champions of liberty and feared Big Government. Brion McClanahan's Politically Incorrect Guide to the Founding Fathers sets the record straight and revives the true history of these great men. Every student--and teacher--in America needs to read this book."
--Dr. Tom DiLorenzo, author of Hamilton's Curse

"Our American Founding Fathers were the leaders in the creation of a unique and noble experiment in liberty and self-government. The passage of time, the misunderstandings of superficial commentators, and misrepresentations by those pushing agendas incompatible with the Founders' wisdom, have hidden and distorted our real history. Dr. Brion McClanahan, one of the ablest of younger historians, has gone a long way toward uncovering who the Founders were and what they really intended."
--Dr. Clyde Wilson, Professor Emeritus, University of South Carolina and Editor of the John C. Calhoun Papers
