Peter Ferrara continuously displays impolite behavior, leads with inappropriate accusations and works frantically to filibuster every discussion Thom attempts to have with him. This bombastic behavior combined with his lack of fact-based appraisal of reality makes listening to him . . . bad radio.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
