As an economist, congressman, and House majority leader, Dick Armey has been one of the most outspoken and highly visible conservatives of the last few decades. His principled positions - he's for limited government, low taxes, and free enterprise - and his straight-shooting style have made him one of today's most popular and respected Republican leaders. Now, in Armey's Axioms, he presents a lively, folksy collection of forty concise lessons on politics, power, faith, and life, illustrated with anecdotes drawn from Armey's own experiences on Capitol Hill and down home in Texas. Funny, provocative, and down-to-earth, Armey's Axioms will delight, surprise, and satisfy his legion of devoted fans, conservatives, and any reader not yet familiar with his often-quoted truths.

"In just ten years, Dick Armey moved from C-SPAN viewer to Majority Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives. In Armey's Axioms he presents some of the lessons he has learned from his years in the House and from country music. . . . It's a good read, packed with good advice."
