His next book would be an instant success, "Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto." The book opened to 13 of 14 weeks as the No.1 best seller on the New York Times list. A review from Amazon.com says, "Levin lays out how conservatives can counter the liberal corrosion that has filtered into every timely issue affecting our daily lives, from the economy to health care, global warming, immigration, and more -- and illustrates how change, as seen through the conservative lens, is always prudent, and always an enhancement to individual freedom." His book is endorsed by fellow conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh. Levin said that his book is so successful without any help of the mainstream media outlets, which not even a single network has a reviewed. More than 1 million copies have been sold.

- Liberalism is mind-boggling and stupid.
- Speaking of Barack Hussein Obama, "You cannot be a statist and a believer in the Declaration of Independence."
- Speaking of Congressional liberals, "You are some of the biggest frauds on the face of the Earth. Liberalism is lying. Sorry, it's true."
- From his August 4, 2009 radio program, "We now have the liberal playbook and we know what they are doing, and we are using it against them. Unlike the Democrats though, we aren't out to destroy our society, we are out to save it."
- "The Congressional Switchboard number is easy to remember, 1-877-SOB-U-SOB, I kid you not." 
- "Obama is a liar. Those who carry water for him like Pelosi, Reid, and the hacks on TV are liars too, because they knowingly repeat falsehoods."
