From the Inside Flap:

If you watch the news or listen to the pundits, you’d think there were only two kinds of Americans: wacko fundamentalist conservatives and whiny bleeding-heart liberals. But, in fact, the vast majority of Americans fall somewhere between these polar opposites. In Ronn Owens, this neglected majority has finally found its champion.

Owens is one of the top-rated radio personalities in the country because he offers moderation, rather than indignation. Always open-minded and never dull, Owens is controversial precisely because his is a rare political voice–a voice from the center. He has no hidden agenda. He spouts no facile moral platitudes. He understands that morality and politics aren’t black and white, and that anyone who says otherwise is probably naive. He doesn’t pander to audiences or call those who disagree with him traitors. He avoids ideology and opts for good, old-fashioned American common sense. Eschewing both the bogus moral outrage of the Right and the starry-eyed idealism of the Left, Owens simply tells it like it is.

Generally liberal on social issues and conservative on fiscal matters, Owens is more popular than ever because he offers people the kind of honest take on politics they can’t get anywhere else. He pulls no punches and holds both the Left and the Right accountable for America’s many problems. Preoccupied with hating each other, liberals and conservatives are polarized by issues, suspicious of each other, and inflexible in their attitudes. And as long as the political discussion in America remains mired in ideological trench warfare, we can’t come together to solve our problems.

Voice of Reason is a breath of fresh air in today’s toxic political climate, offering a positive message in dark times: that with reason, common sense, and pragmatism, we can find common ground between all Americans–left, right, and center. If you’re sick of the hyperactive bleating of the Ann Coulters and Michael Moores, and you’re ready for a straightforward and fair discussion of today’s biggest issues, there’s only one Voice of Reason out there.

From the Back Cover:

Ronn Owens
Winner of the 2003 Marconi Radio Award for Major Market Personality of the Year

"Throughout the many years I’ve known Ronn Owens, I’ve developed a deep respect for his knowledge of issues and for his uncommon common touch. There are many great things I can say about Ronn, but the thing I admire most about him is his fairness. And our public discourse is the better for it."
–U.S. Senator Joe Lieberman (D-CT)

"Whether you find yourself agreeing with him much of the time or not, Ronn Owens is never dull or given to predictable knee-jerk opinions. On the contrary, you can always rely on him to be interesting and fair, and to challenge stereotypes on the right and left in pursuit of answers to problems that many others exploit to deepen the divisions in the country."
–U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ)

"I have known Ronn Owens for over 20 years, and I have the utmost respect for him. Many radio talk show hosts today come from the far right or the far left. Ronn Owens does not. He bases his decisions on reason and common sense."
–U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)

"Ronn Owens is a corner store for common sense. He’s got the smart good part of liberalism and the smart tough part of conservatism. He’s street smart, well-read, and gives a damn."
–Chris Matthews, host of Hardball on MSNBC and The Chris Matthews Show on CNBC

"Ronn Owens is not left or right and surely is not always wrong! But he sure does make you think."
–Tim Russert, host of Meet the Press

"People want to order a la carte. They don’t want the dinner either party offers. An appetizer of pro-choice shouldn’t mean a second course of high taxes. You shouldn’t have to swallow the NRA’s baloney to bring your taxes down. This is what Ronn Owens is all about–neither party, neither ideology, just common sense and political independence."
–Dick Morris, FOX News Channel Political Analyst
