Summary:
While there have been plenty of hatchet jobs on Rush Limbaugh, this is the first serious examination of his career and persona. Expanded from Zev Chafets's much-discussed cover story for The New York Times Magazine, this is a penetrating biography of a leading conservative power player. For more than twenty years, Limbaugh has used his microphone to entertain and enrage the largest audience in American broadcasting, and has set the agenda for the American Right. While Limbaugh's public persona is instantly recognizable, his background and private life are often misunderstood. This book provides a personal look at the self-proclaimed "most dangerous man in America, " who gave Chafets extensive interviews and unprecedented access to his inner circle. Chafets has talked at length to everyone in Rush's life: family, staff, friends, even his psychologist. What emerges is a portrait of a master entertainer, a public intellectual, a political force, and a fascinating man.--From publisher description.
