Radio Host

Author

Levin's published the book Men in Black: How the Supreme Court is destroying America which discusses how activist judges are legislating from the bench. This book was released in 2005 and became a best-seller. In 2007, he published a non-political book "Rescuing Sprite: A Dog Lover's Story of Joy and Anguish," that dealt with the adoption of his dog from a humane society. 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.
