A whimsical response to the best-selling What's the Matter with Kansas? casts a skeptical eye on the nation's most liberal and populous state, in an anecdotal survey that likens California to an American Rome of over-indulgence and over-regulation that fails to meet its ideals.

Jack Cashill is an independent writer and producer and, on a contractual basis, the executive editor of Ingram’s Magazine, the Kansas City regional business magazine.
In addition to his work with Ingram’s, Jack has written for Fortune, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Weekly Standard, and regularly for the American Thinker and WorldNetDaily.
Within the last decade Jack has written six other books of non-fiction—First Strike, Ron’s Brown’s Body, Hoodwinked, Sucker Punch, What’s the Matter with California, and Popes and Bankers. Jack has also produced nearly a score of documentaries for regional PBS and national cable channels.
Jack has a Ph.D. from Purdue University in American studies, has taught at Purdue and at Kansas City area universities, and has served as a Fulbright professor in France.
"Wonderful, a thorough, thoughtful, impressive effort.... [Cashill] exposes our blindness, and offers a diagnosis so dead-on, so compelling, that it ought to leave 36 million bewildered Californians scratching their heads, wondering, 'Why didn't I think of that?'"
-- Chris Weinkopf, Los Angeles Daily News
"Far from being a simplistic 'right vs. left' take on California and why the rest of the country should learn from its example, Cashill's book provides a rich tapestry of time and place.... What's the Matter with California? demonstrates what exactly ails the Golden State."
-- Cinnamon Stillwell, online columnist, SFGate.com (San Francisco Chronicle)
"Thoroughly brave, unsparingly clear-eyed, and absolutely entertaining. Like California, it's an exploration of the sublime and the ridiculous, a juxtaposition of the awful, the titillating, and the hopeful.... Cashill does America a true service by exposing the decay of the country's most dysfunctional state -- and providing real solutions."
-- Ben Shapiro, author of Porn Generation
