On the heels of his Emmy-winning It Gets Better campaign, Dan Savage delivers “powerful messages for both the head and heart” (Entertainment Weekly)   From the moment he began writing his syndicated sex-advice column, Savage Love, Dan Savage has never been shy about expressing his opinion on controversial topics—political or otherwise. Now, he addresses issues ranging from parenting and the gay agenda to the Catholic Church and health care. Among them:    •  Why straight people should have straight “pride” parades, too    •  Why Obamacare, as good as it is, is “still kinda evil”    •  Why what passes for sex-ed in America is more like “sex dread”    •  Why the Bible is “only as good and decent as the person reading it”   Speaking to a broad range of subjects with brutal honesty and irreverent humor, American Savage cements Dan Savage’s place as a provocative and insightful voice in American culture.

Story

Love Dan Savage. Love this book.

Dan's thoughtful stories of his life from his Catholic upbringing, coming out, parenting his son with his husband, and going up against many big conservative names serve as a backdrop for his strong case for logic and equality. The reading by Dan Savage himself makes this book even better as you can hear the emotion, and sometimes anger, as he talks about his struggles and frustrations. Dan has a way of writing that can have you laughing and near tears in the same paragraph. Great listen.
