Truly One-Of-A-Kind!

I always feel like there is a gifted fighter in our corner when I hear Victor Davis Hanson speak!!!! I just preordered his newest book, and very much look forward to the read! He speaks for those of us like-minded but without a voice. I also love his stories from an earlier period in his life. He would be someone I would love to hear in person.

I learn more from VDH than any other person. He's easy to listen to and the knowledge and wisdom he imparts is extraordinary.
