Buy a Book for the Troops

(Note: This post has been dated for June 18th to keep it at the top of my blog through Father's Day. Please scroll down to read my current (more or less) posts. Thank you!)

Bill Bennett, radio talk show host and former Secretary of Education and Drug Czar, has a new book out titled, America The Last Best Hope, Volume 1. This book is dedicated to the brave men and women in America's military.

The publisher, Nelson Current (part of Thomas Nelson, Inc.), has generously agreed to donate one book to our soldiers for each book purchased on Bill Bennett's website between now and Fathers Day (June 18th). If you purchase from the website, you also have the option of getting an autographed copy or a personalized copy. They'll make great Father's Day and birthday gifts. If you're like me and can't pass up a bargain, this is like getting two books for the price of one! Just click on the book below or any of the links in this post and buy as many copies as you can afford.

About the book (from the website):

Volume One of Dr. Bennett's masterpiece America: The Last Best Hope is now available. Volume two is a work in progress. America: The Last Best Hope is a vibrant account of this country's record from before the Founding of the United States to the present day. In recent decades, many histories have treated the American story largely as a social study of missteps and injustices. This treatment is different. Dr. Bennett does not shrink from any hard truths about the nation's past, and he trumpets the glory, romance, and exceptionalism of American achievement. At 512 pages, the first volume covers the discovery of the Americas to the eve of World War I. Volume Two takes readers from World War I to September 11, 2001. The first volume will be published and released May 23, 2006 by Nelson Current, and the second in 2007.

I don't often plug a book unless I have a very good reason. I don't think there are too many reasons better than showing our military how much we support them. Now, buy the book.
