Great topic and fluid writing made the book hard to put down and easy to finish. Her essays do a wonderful job of precisely understanding the different components of the right. Many other books focus on just one area: the religious right, the moderate right, militias, or sometimes Paleoconservatives even, but she hit just about every right wing culture. I do think she was overly critical at times, but her analysis is a smart and good one.
