RUSH: Folks, I got a couple book recommendations for you. I told you about one of them the other day, Megyn Kelly’s husband, Douglas Brunt, has his first novel out, and I’ve been reading it, haven’t finished it. It’s fun. It’s his first book. He’s one of these guys that always wanted to be a writer. He’s a CEO of an Internet security company. The name of the book is “Ghosts of Manhattan,” and there’s another book by the same title that came out earlier this year by some other dude.
We’ll link to it at RushLimbaugh.com. It’s got a blue cover and it’s a novel about Wall Street before the crash and a central figure there. It’s in novel form telling what happened, the kinda people involved, and it’s good. I don’t mean to sound surprised good, it’s pleasantly good, it’s fun. I’m really getting a kick out of reading it. It doesn’t hurt that I know Doug. Full disclosure. I know Doug and Megyn, and everybody needs a little boost, and this is worth it. If you like escape reading, novel type reading, it’s fun. And you’ll recognize people — not that you know, but the character portrayal, we all know people like these in this book. The couple that invite you to dinner that you wish you didn’t go, you know you shouldn’t go, you get there, and it’s an absolute disaster. But this is funny. It’s humorous.
And then Steve Moore. Steve Moore, the Wall Street Journal, you see him on Fox regularly. He’s one of their contributors. He has a little book here. This is not tough sledding at all. It’s called “Who’s the Fairest of Them All?: The Truth about Opportunity, Taxes, and Wealth in America.” This is such a demagogued issue. And in a very small, simple, concise presentation, Mr. Moore has provided ammo for anybody who wants it to explain to anybody else how tax policy can create wealth for everybody. It’s no more complicated than that and how we had better get serious about creating wealth as well as creating jobs. Not just jobs, but jobs that pay well. That creates more taxpayers; that creates more tax revenue, which reduces deficits.
This is all supply-side. They call it trickle-down. They try to demonize it. It’s a great little book to have. I’m holding it right here. You can hold it in one hand like an iPhone. It’s bigger than an iPhone, but it’s called “Who’s the Fairest of Them All?: The Truth about Opportunity, Taxes, and Wealth in America.” Stephen Moore.
And of course Ann Coulter’s book. You know what? I’d love to issue a challenge. I interviewed her yesterday for the next issue of the Limbaugh Letter, which, by the way, is now available as an app. Yes. We’ve gone digital with the Limbaugh Letter, search the app store, “Limbaugh Letter,” it’s Apple, Android, Amazon, Google, Kindle, you name it. Everything on it is free ’til the end of the year. Got some back issues there for you to see. The current interview is with Mia Love from Utah. Ann Coulter’s the next interview. I told her, “It would be great if every black American read your book,” because her book is about how white liberals have destroyed black America. Things you’ve heard discussed on the program, but again, there it is in book form.
It’s actually three books. Ann’s book, “Mugged.” Steve Moore’s book, “Who’s the Fairest of Them All?” And Doug Brunt, if you just want to read a really fun, escapist novel about Wall Street and the kind of people that are there, and what was going on before the crash, “Ghosts of Manhattan.”
