Endorsements

I HAVE KNOWN SID DINNERSTEIN FOR AT LEAST FIVE YEARS.  IN THAT TIME SID HAS IMPRESSED ME AS ONE OF THE MOST COMMITTED INDIVIDUALS THAT I HAVE KNOWN. HE BELIEVES IN WHAT HE DOES AND GOES AT IT WITH AN EFFORT THAT
IS TO BE ADMIRED. BE IT HIS POSITION WITH THE REPUBICAN PARTY OR HIS EFFORT IN BETTERING
EDUCATION, WE CERTAINLY NEED MORE COMMITTED INDIVIDUALS LIKE SID DINNERSTEIN. HE IS A MAN THAT I AM PROUD TO KNOW.

RESPECTFULLY,

Disgusting... how the incumbents refuse do the work of the people and instead do the work of the large corporations who give them the money to keep being relected. We need term limits the same as we have for the Presidency.

Hi Sid:
I know you, and your insights first hand, so I can endorse these.  If I had a draft of your book, could comment on that as well. If you distributed drafts, then your special friends (thank you for my inclusion) would have more fodder for their endorsements.

Sid sits at a table with Will Rogers and   Warren Buffet; He is the product of post World War II Brooklyn streets, pulsating with immigrant flavors, fights, ethers, and lore; Sid’s gift is wrestling daunting problems with wit, an encyclopedic trove of poignant stories, and debate   shattering, long resonanting “Sidisms”. Dinerstein’s persuasive outreach as a Florida Regional Republican Chair tipped the 2000  victory margin to Bush W.  This book may be Sid’s subconscious atonement!

Jay Rosenberg, Ex-Associate, Business Developer/ Entrepreneur

PS: If your book's title keeps its "Adult" moniker, then, my first phrase:



"Sid sits at the adult table with Will Rogers and   Warren Buffet;"
Sid--my pleasure---"A must read for anyone interested in the political scene. As usual Sid Dinerstein calls them as he sees them and pulls no punches"   Tom Sliney, former Chairman, Republican Party of Palm Beach County.....look forward to reading your book....

Throughout our lifelong friendship, I have always known Sidney to be a progressive thinker. His unique ability to consider “out of the box” solutions is second to none. If anyone can bridge the gap between bi-partisan politics in America and get us all on the same page, it’s Sidney Dinerstein!

Ira Stitz, President

Good people who selflessly volunteer create a greater society that subsequently enables the enrichment of all the freedoms we enjoy under the Constitution our Founding Father's crafted

While Sid and I may not always agree 100 % on every issue, I'm proud of our friendship and the honesty and credibility he offers toward our mutual effort to create positive change for the people we serve in the State of Florida and a nation we cherish and love.

I have complained for years about the refusal of Congressmen to impose term limits upon themselves and the lack of leadership showed by  our elected representatives to actually try to make the country better. Sid Dinerstein not only listened to my complaints he actually did something by writing this book. Lets put the country back in the hands of its citizens by following the plan Sid Dinerstein has laid out before us.

Florida Gold Coast Log Cabin Republicans



Sid Dinerstein has always shown me a love of country stands above the love of a political party. This book shows all of how to hold both parties accountable to its citizens and how we can continue to have the best nation in the world. Read this book and pass it on to a friend.Lets get our country back!
"SID DINERSTEIN IS ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST AND HARDEST WORKING PEOPLE I KNOW.  HE IS SINCERE, AN EXCELLENT  COMUNICATOR AND HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOUR.

“If you currently are not very excited about politics or perhaps even discouraged or disgusted, here is a man that may cause you to have a change of heart.  His enthusiasm is as contagious as his intellectual insights and analysis of the political arena are accurate.  In person or in writing, he will educate, entertain, and inspire in ways you least expect!”

As someone who has witnessed party machinations up-close and personal, I am certain Sid Dinerstein will share the realities of his participation in party politics. The question, when does loyalty to party and loyalty to country join to create good governance is one that bears discussion. With Sid's intellect and wisdom, I am sure there will be great dialogue regarding the role parties play in leading our country.
You have my unqualified endorsement for this book.

In a time when partisan politics have become both the means and the end, it is time we refocus public attention on public policy and welfare.

Best wishes on the success of your book, and high hopes that it will refocus the voting majority from party politics to political philosophies that they as individuals can support and vote for, a free form of government cannot exist otherwise.

Henry Kanarek



"When I think of Sid, I see a man devoted to his country, compassionate, bright and accomplished. For a man that states he is retired he works awfully hard! This is a must read for anyone that has common sense. His literary delivery is superb and unlike the norm his book delivers as promised: provactive, nonpartisan public policy. Why 'Adults Only'? this should be required reading for everyone including at the high school level. If you LOVE this country....you'll LOVE this book!"

Without having read the book and only hearing your first chapter at our mtg - difficult to say much about its contents. 
 Baby Boomers have been babies long enough.  It's time to refocus our energies from our sense of entitlement to a sense of responsibility.  Instead of blaming others for the problems that face our country, it's time to confront the difficult issues that affect not only us, but the generations who follow. It's time to finally become Adults!

Sid Dinerstein has worked tirelessly and fearlessly throughout Palm Beach County to effect change; he uses his business acumen, intelligence, sense of humor and outstanding communications skills to educate and motivate citizens (Republicans, Democrats and Independents alike) to act.  Sid isn't a complainer - he's a doer.  Adults Only should make doers of us all!

From the center of the storm during the 2000 Florida recount, through 
hischairmanship of the Palm Beach County Republican Party, Sid Dinerstein 
hasdistinguished himself as a true leader, with a combination of common 
sense and good
humor. These qualities shine through in “Adults Only,” where he
 applies lessons he learned at the grassroots level to tackle the major political issues

Makes you want to play on his team.  With Sid calling the plays, this book like his life, is sure to be a winner.

Sid has put a tremendous effort and time into politics. He has done a great job

Lothar Mayer



SID: GOOD NEWS! And the title alone carries an important message to American voters: Grow Up! Citizenship carries responsibilities as well as rights. Indeed, politics is not a spectator sport, as I underlined in my own book, WE THE PEOPLE. If the political participation of the American citizen doesn't go up, the Republic goes down! "Adults Only" participated in our first Constitutional Convention of 1787. When onlookers asked Ben Franklin what they had accomplished, he answered: "A Republic, if you can keep it." You book should help inspire the current generation of adults to rise to the challenge.  

PETER BEARSE, Ph.D. International Consulting Economist



If Sid Dinerstein's brilliance in directing the Republican Party of Palm Beach County is matched in his new book, then it will be, without a doubt, a best-seller! Sid has a great mind for political theory and possesses a no-nonsense approach to problem solving techniques and solutions.

"Interesting reading for the political junkie, and mandatory reading for people who think there are no solutions left for the problems we face." 

Susan Whelchel
Deputy Mayor Boca Raton, Florida.



Sid Dinerstein …… the “most likely” person to write an “Adult Only” book on politics. Sid has personally witnessed good and bad politics for many years. It is to my amazement that Sid has hung in there as long as he has. The easy way out for Americans is to become “unthinkingly” partisan with one political party or stick their head in the ground like an ostrich and go on with their life obvious to the World around them. Unfortunately too many Americans are doing this very thing and Sid’s book will point out why they should get seriously involved as “American’s” to save America as we know it ….. or we will loss it.

Al Cohen, Managing Partner of Real Estate Development Company



Sid, You're the best....Here's the quote..........." Sid is a true Red-Meat-Guy......Born in a Blue State (New York), Sid has seen the light here in Florida and knows the country is going insolvent under a tidal wave of debt......In his  new book Adults Only, Sid offers many salient answers for generations to come....A must read for any candidate from School board to President..."    Former Mayor, Ralph F.

Sid's experience in government and politics spans all levels of
government and goes deep into the trenches.  His analysis and

perspective of campaigns and their transition to government policy should be more true to life than previous attempts by other writers.

I knew Sid almost 40 years ago when he lead 40 campers, six counselors
and a bus driver across the country for six weeks. We had lots of rain and
lots of fun and still remember that summer with the fondest of memories. Sid
was always calm, organized and patient - given that we were a bunch of 40 
fourteen year olds with raging hormones. And don't forget it was 1968.

"After having been an international banker and Wall Street executive  you get to meet a lot of interesting people in your travels and day to day life.

The kind of people whose wisdom is so simple and so elegant that you cannot imagine that they live in the same world as you and me. The kind of person who with a few chosen words,  or in the case of Sid Dinerstein a few more words, show insights and understandings that open up your mind and give you new insights as to how to look at things.

Dinerstein's charasmatic attitude shines through in "Adults Only". He is not afraid to tell it like it is-
what politics needs is to grow up and look at the bigger picture- what is REALLY better for America:
partisanship or unity.   It is about time someone took a stand and pointed out what's wrong in
America.  Go Sid!!

Joanna Cunningham

We are witnessing an era of American politics whereby the Blue State versus Red State mentality is ever-increasing in a manner that is detrimental to our Nation’s continued growth and prosperity.  Sid Dinerstein has very correctly identified the need to place National priorities above political loyalties in his new book entitled, “Adults Only.”  Given Sid’s extensive political knowledge-base, I anticipate that “Adults Only” will quickly become a must-read selection for people who are committed to a sound future for America.  Categorically, “Adults Only” is an accurate and thoughtful approach to healing our Nation’s political rifts.

I have known Sid for quite a while and he has never failed to have something interesting and important to say about the day's issues. I am lucky to have him as a constituent because he always has the time to provide his opinion and counsel when difficult questions arise. I have never gone wrong following his advice, and I'm certain the readers of his book will benefit just as much as I have.

“I encourage all who have a passion for our country to read this book. Sid Dinerstein offers a fresh perspective of the political landscape in our world today. It will educate you as to why we must be more involved in choosing our leaders in local, state and federal government positions, regardless of party affiliation. Challenging us, as citizens, to discipline ourselves to think in terms of what is best for us in our neighborhoods, towns, region and nation, as opposed to following the agendas of political parties and their candidates. Sort of a turn back to the past and embrace what our founding fathers actually wanted for the future of our nation and it’s people. ”

After years of watching Sid Dinerstein's pioneering style of leadership in politics, I have come to believe that Sid is better at his job than anyone else is at theirs.  It is apropos that someone write a nonpartisan, public policy book with the sole motivation of reuniting our United States of America -- it is not surprising that it's Sid Dinerstein who steps forward and does it.

 Ron Brie

For someone who wears so many hats in the political arena, Sid Dinerstein can be totally honest, totally irreverent, and entertaining in his evaluation of candidates and situations (with either of the “parties” whenever appropriate).  It is never a surprise when I hear he has “hit the nail on the head”; another short and to the point comment that always makes Americans think and never, ever turns us off to the passion of all things pertaining to governance.  I think it should have a subtitle somewhere called “Doctor of Democracy Dinerstein”.  Personal freedom is too precious not to fight for and Sid fights in the arena of ideas and ideals.

It is with great honor and extreme pleasure to endorse a book whos contents and knowledge are sorely needed in these troubled times.  Sid Dinnersteins credentials rise him above those whos commenteries pale under his expertise on these delicate matters.  I strongly reccomend this book to all who study the art and science of politics.

Having known Sid for 15 years,the most striking word in his book title is non partisan. Sid Dinerstein and non partisan is indeed an oxymoron.Knowing Sid, if he decides  to  do a non partisan book, as difficult as this is for him, he will achieve his goal.

I will be first in line  to purchase his book when it hits the shelves.

In a world in which people live to just hear themselves talk, it is refreshing to find someone who actually offers solutions and, therefore, substance. You'll nod your head while reading every "Sidism," thinking to yourself that you should have thought of that one first. And you'll enjoy Dinerstein's book even as you come to realize its great importance to our country and our children.

Jodi Martin



I have known and argued with Mr. Dinerstein on many occasions covering a multitude of topics. With that said I must admit that each and every one of those arguments has sharpened my mind. To get into a debate with Sid you had better be prepared and  ready to argue with facts and figures at hand. I am expecting his book "ADULTS ONLY" to be another example of Mr. Dinerstein's excellent wit and preparation. I am looking forward to reading it.

When Sid became involved with the leadership of  the GOP  here in Palm Beach  County,
I knew that he was a man of intellect and insight into the "nuts and bolts" of grassroots politics. 
After more than ten years of being closely involved in the political arena with Sid, I am
convinced that our democracy would be much better served if politicians(of any party)
would read this book and follow his wise counsel!

Fran Hancock
State Committeewoman



As a party insider, Sid is able to objectively write about what America needs without getting bogged down in election-year politics.
This is a must-read for every American who truly believes in the American dream!

Peter Feaman

Palm Beach County



I don’t know why you need to have a pre-release endorsement but - from the preview of your new book – I can only say you are once again giving a major contribution of your time to help solve a problem that has prevented the progress of every previous democracy –a It has been common knowledge for millennia that democracy carries the seed of its own demise.

When people (most of us) learn that they can get unearned benefits from the government,  our representatives will give them those benefits to buy votes in order to retain their position of power.

It seems that your book may help stave off the impending decline of our civilization IF PEOPLE WILL READ IT AND LEARN.
May your book sell millions of copies.

Sid Dinerstein's wit and brilliance shine through in this insider look at the business of public policy. A strict conservative partisan in his "day job" chairing the Republican Party of Palm Beach County, his liberal bent gets a fair share of exposure in his heartfelt personal writings

SID DINERSTEIN HAS ALWAYS BEEN ONE OF THE MOST ENTERTAINING , ELOQUENT SPEAKERS

I HAVE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE OF KNOWING... WE HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR SEVERAL YEARS NOW  SINCE HE BECAME CHAIRMAN OF THE R.E.C. OF P.B.C.  HIS "SIDISM'S HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A JOY TO HEAR AND HE CALLS IT LIKE HE SEE'S IT!.....GOOD LUCK SID, MY NEWEST AUTHOR FRIEND...

Dear Sid,
First off, I'm so honored to be on this distribution list.  I speak of you many times when I meet people for the 1st time and they want to know a bit about my history.  I always let them know that when I was a teenager graduating from high school, I thought I'd work for JBS, a check guarantee company.  I always tell them about the owner of JBS, Sid Dinerstein, who flat out told me if that was my plans and that college was not, you were going to fire me.  Boy was that motivation!  Without college god knows where I'd be.  Having my degree opened up many doors that would have been closed forever.  You could have just let me work for you, but you cared enough & saw something in me that I couldn't see at the time.

Can't wait to read your book!  You always had foresight & wisdom beyond your years.  Hope all is well.  Right now I'm heading up a Committee - Keep the Wheels Rolling to fund raise to build a skate park in Pequannock.  We had the park approved by town council in Feb. 2007 & now were in fund raising mode.  The town pledged $35,000 seed money, the PBA $5,000 & we've made $6,000 in local events.  Now it's time to start grant writing for funds from large corporation & canvassing local businesses.

Jacob is now 15 years old and has aspirations of being a pro skate boarder.  I'm on the 5 year plan of getting out of corporate America.  I'm still at Stryker Orthpaedic in Mahwah in Finance, but just interviewed for a job in Clinical Research negotiating contracts with hospitals & surgeons.

Keep in touch and good luck with the book.  I'll be ordering my advanced copy as soon as I send this email.

Best regards,
Cathy



Sid starts with three issues where there is general agreement across party lines so most of his readers are on board for the harder choices necessary for serious adults to make if we are to have political comity in our country.  Partisanship is running amuck --this book is an attempt to tame the animosity with a mature sense of responsibility.  If it succeeds he will have the gratitude of posterity. For it is our children who pay the price for the profligate vote-buying today. George Blumel, Grandfather (my best title these days)
I have had the pleasure of knowing Sid Dinerstein for almost ten years, and have known him as a man of integrity, honesty and intelligence. Sid has a mountainous knowledge of politics in Palm Beach County, the State of Florida and at the national level. His wit and ability to decode major political problems to find solutions is one of his greatest attributes, and makes “Adults Only” a must read for individuals concerned with the tribulations of our nation and with its governance.

Dear Sid,
 
I would be honored if you did.  You not only have the solutions, but equally important youimplement the a-political delivery system, the "Trojan Horse" that opens the door to get the job done.
Best, Von

Thanks Sid,
Nothing like professional writing.  You are first class, and filled with wisdom.
Best, Von



“Adults Only” is sure to be a hit with all proud Americans. Mr. Dinerstein’s quick wit and unique insights gained over many years in our political system is sure to be interesting, informative and inspired reading.

"My awareness of Sid Dinerstein and his knowledge of the political arena is enough to want to buy this book".

"He has so much to say and his words should be in everyone's political vocabulary"
 Sid:  On the side, one day you and I should talk about Brenda Star.
 All the best.

Sid Dinerstein’s excellent book “Adults Only” points out how one major building block of our democracy has been eroding – the ability of Americans to come together as a people to solve the nation’s problems. Bravo Sid for having the courage to tell everyone that “democracy is not a spectator sport” and to offer solutions for a brighter future.

Sid Dinerstein being a successful business man enabled him to retire early in life. Sid never retired as his life is filled with doing good for his fellow man. It makes no difference who you are where you came from or what your needs are Sid is there to help. If one can do more you should and Sid does.

If you know Sid you know his love for his family, his strong will to help wherever it is needed. Sid values his friends that know if they needed some help Sid would be the first one at there side. If there is a wrong Sid is there to make it right. His friendship is valued by all who know him.

Political players across the land need to read and heed Sid?s message. Many politicians have not yet learned that when partisanship turns nasty, it taints all players in the political tub. In-your-face politics should become a relic of the past; throwing it aside for statesmanlike behavior is the route politicians can take to become respectable again in the eyes of voters.?
 
John R. Smith, Chairman
Business Political Action Committee of Palm Beach County



Sid has truly found a niche in the political arena of Palm Beach County. He is committed, passionate and extremely outspoken  in regard to issues that matter to him,his friends and the community. I have been a front row witness to all the action in and out of politics for the past forty years, and Sid is one of the most upstanding and painfully honest man one could ever meet.
