Publisher's Summary

The host of Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight offers a blistering critique of the new American ruling class, the elites of both parties, who have taken over the ship of state, leaving the rest of us, the citizen-passengers, to wonder: How do we put the country back on course?

Happily surprised, Tucker is much more nuanced than you’d expect, trust me

My only knowledge of Tucker Carlson was limited and superficial before reading this book. Like most people my age (mid-twenties), I had seen videos of his Fox show on Youtube. I had a neutral opinion of him, found him sometimes right, sometimes wrong, sometimes open-minded, sometimes stubborn, etc. This audiobook is a deep dive into Carlson’s opinion on different topics (most of them politically charged), and it is not what you’d expect. This format allows him to throughly develop his positions and opinions in a way he simply could not do on his show. I devoured the book within a few days. Once you’re done listening to the book, I recommend you go watch his interview with Ben Shapiro during one his recent “Sunday Special”. It’s on Youtube and it’s a great one. Enjoy!

If you like Tucker, you'll love this book

I finished this book in one straight shot and found myself annoyed by anyone calling me or messaging me, subsequently interrupting, no matter how urgent the message. Tucker's wit and comedic timing shine through and make this an absolute pleasure to listen to and I was glad he narrated it himself. I didn't agree with everything in it, but honestly would have been disappointed if I had, knowing it would mean I've fallen prey to ideology rather than empiricism. That being said, even the points of disagreement I found interesting and thought provoking. He easily and quickly expounds the way our world seems to be loosing its grip on reality. Also nice to hear was his bipartisan stance, he calls our Republicans when it is diligent to do so. Definitely a great books, and I won't be surprised if I find myself listening to it a second or even third time!

Great commentary on American's current politics

This is my favorite book about American's current political climate. Tucker does a great job breaking down how the Liberal elite use identity politics, environmentalism and socialism as a smokescreen to keep the public from questioning them. 10/10

A book destined to be burned.

Tucker Carlson is one of the last rational and level-headed anchors left in the mainstream media. This book is intelligent, honest and sane; I’m sure they will ban it soon.

Very enlightening

This book sums up the problems with the elites and reading it years later shows you just how right Tucker is! The Democratic Party is a cancer on America!

Awesome!

Regardless whether not all 100% of the information in this book is uncolored by bias, or whether all is 100% factual, you cannot walk away from this book (still) believing (IF you did so before), that Tucker has not anything but sincere regard for the wellbeing of the US - its society, its environment & its citizens!
Spoken with authentic conviction!
Thank you Mr. Carlson, this was eye-opening!
