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.

Professional reviews

"The author is a renowned advice columnist as well as the creator of the ÒIt Gets BetterÓ project, an effort to give hope to LGBTQ youth. Savage is at his best in this collection of essays, which cover a range of viewpoints. Primarily, his essays dissect American culture, with particular attention to issues of sexuality and a general leaning toward progressive politics. His succinct articulation of some of the issues within the culture wars will give solace to many progressives. The eloquence of his writing becomes even more palpable in his narration. With years of experience in radio, Savage knows how to deliver his points and drive home ideas. His asides and jokes are genuinely expressed and clearly communicated.
