Product description

Review

"Wonderful, a thorough, thoughtful, impressive effort.... [Cashill] exposes our blindness, and offers a diagnosis so dead-on, so compelling, that it ought to leave 36 million bewildered Californians scratching their heads, wondering, 'Why didn't I think of that?'"

-- Chris Weinkopf, Los Angeles Daily News

"Far from being a simplistic 'right vs. left' take on California and why the rest of the country should learn from its example, Cashill's book provides a rich tapestry of time and place.... What's the Matter with California? demonstrates what exactly ails the Golden State."

-- Cinnamon Stillwell, online columnist, SFGate.com (San Francisco Chronicle)

"Thoroughly brave, unsparingly clear-eyed, and absolutely entertaining. Like California, it's an exploration of the sublime and the ridiculous, a juxtaposition of the awful, the titillating, and the hopeful.... Cashill does America a true service by exposing the decay of the country's most dysfunctional state -- and providing real solutions."

-- Ben Shapiro, author of Porn Generation
