A Choice, Not An Echo is a book by Phyllis Schlafly published in 1964. The book is considered a classic of conservative political writing.

In 1964, the conservative wing was on the rise within the Republican Party, culminating in the campaign of Barry Goldwater for President of the United States. The book A Choice, Not An Echo detailed how the liberal "Rockefeller Republican" wing of the Republican Party had manipulated the Republican Party's choice of nominees in several elections to nominate people like Wendell Willkie and Dwight Eisenhower, and called on conservatives to rally against the liberal wing and offer a true conservative for the nomination. Hence, the title of the book. Millions of copies of this book were bought and distributed by supporters of Goldwater, making it one of the all time best selling conservative political books in the United States. The book helped launch the career of Phyllis Schlafly as a conservative activist.

It was published by Pere Marquette Press, ISBN 0-686-11486-8.
