Dennis Prager, theologian and philosopher turned talk-show host, is one of the most brilliant and compelling voices in America today. His extraordinarily popular radio show with the signature sign-off, "Think a second time," coupled with his own biweekly newsletter, has firmly established him as a fixture in intellectual communities nationwide. In Think a Second Time, Prager blends a rigorous and scholarly education with utterly original thinking on current events. From the dangers of idealism to the roots of extremism to his thoughts on God and an afterlife, Prager offers challenging answers to up-to-the-minute questions: Should a single woman have a child? Why don't good homes always produce good children? Is America really racist? Why does the Holocaust not negate the existence of God? Now, with an entirely new section on the precedent-setting "Baby Richard" custody case and an exploration of the issue of blood versus love, Prager continues to demonstrate his ability to draw clear moral lines in the sands of our very troubled times.

Interesting view on many casual things May 28, 2007
I wouldn't say that this book was an eye opener, but I definately can not say that this is a waste. It's a very non-standard, maybe a little bit conservative, view on many everyday things. I would reccomend to read it to lots of my friends.
Great Author - Great Subject May 13, 2007
Dr. Prager is at his best and not distracted by radio show callers.
Clear Thinking Apr 4, 2007
This and Dennis Prager's other book "Happiness is a Serious Problem" should be required reading for late high school and early college students!
For thinkers... Feb 27, 2007
Dennis Prager is not your typical talk radio host. His show is more about ideas than anything else. Like he says, "on my show we talk about everything in life." That is the impressive thing about this book--it covers a wide range of topics that will make you think, a second time. If you're a little burned out from all the political books out there--no matter if you are left or right, you should give this one a read.
A GREAT Book and Exercise for Your Mind Jun 17, 2006
By thinking, and rethinking, the author is able to dissect issues and ideals to a very clear and understandable core. He then shows how many flaws enter into the rebuilding of those issues resulting in a society that likes to be followers, rather than thinkers.
If you think once, you will see the light. If you continue to think about issues in the manner in which the author does, all will be revealed. It is amazing how everything comes down to the same core principles, that most people would agree with if the took the time and made the effort to think.
This book should be required reading for every college student.
