Things That Matter: Three Decades of Passions, Pastimes and Politics by Charles Krauthammer


5 out of 5 stars *****

Charles Krauthammer is a wordsmith who is never cliche` with his descriptions of a situation or a heartfelt sentiment. After reading his prose, this reader is touched by his eloquence and thought. Things that Matter is a collection articles he writes and an autobiography he shares about his personal life, a glimpse into the soul of Charles. The reason that drives his passion is politics, the necessary structure for individuals, communities, countries, and societies to coexist in the world. Charm and keen insight are the tools Charles uses to craft his prose, much to the delight of his audience, regardless of which side of the aisle they sit.
