Publisher's Summary

Blaze TV and top radio host Dana Loesch explains that the biggest political problem today is that the people who run this country have no idea what life is really like for ordinary Americans. In fact, they have contempt for the very people they claim to represent.

When the owners of a small pizza parlor in Indiana were asked by the local press whether they would ever cater a gay wedding, they said no, citing their personal religious beliefs. The internet responded with immediate outrage, posting death threats and vicious online reviews, and forcing them to shut down. All for expressing a personal opinion rooted in faith, in response to a completely hypothetical question. A new front in the culture war had been opened.

When the owners of the pizza parlor told Dana Loesch on a Blaze TV interview that they might never reopen, Loesch started a fundraising campaign. Hundreds of thousands of dollars quickly poured in to support them. The people donating weren't taking a stand against gay rights; they just believed that a random mom-and-pop shop shouldn't be run out of business because media and political elites on both coasts caricature and vilify rural Americans.

Most of the problems with our country today can be traced to a very simple cause - the growing disconnect between the government and media elites and the rest of us, the old-fashioned, hard-working, God-fearing Americans who are proud to live in middle America. As Loesch explains, too many people getting on their high horse about Wal-Mart have never shopped in one. Protesters outraged at small town cops have never been helped by one. Environmentalists who claim to want to protect the spotted owl have never been in the woods with one. Atheists who attack committed Christians have never sat in a pew with one.

Loesch doesn't take aims solely at the Democrats; some Republicans in Congress and on the presidential campaign trail have also forgotten what life is like for the people back home. While these so-called leaders may have forgotten the people in coal towns and farming communities, the voters in those communities haven't forgotten Washington's betrayals. And it will show in 2016.

As one of the most powerful and recognizable voices on talk radio today, Dana Loesch is leading a revolution of America's new Silent Majority.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Interesting and worthwhile book!"

    While I do not agree with Dana Loesch on everything, her descriptions of flyover country and the values of the majority of people who live there are dead right. Her point that coastal elites do not understand those people is equally correct. Flyover Nation is a very worthwhile book. Narration is outstanding.

    "Ah I think I am in love."

    I met Dana at a book signing she was a very nice lady. Next thing I knew I started reading this book I was enthralled by it I couldn't stop listening to the audio version. I also met Dana's husband Chris at the book signing I told him I hated him because I love this woman and I want to marry her so I asked if she had a sister. The answer was no. But the book is amazing if you don't know anything about the conservative movement you really need to listen to this book. Even if you do know what a conservative is you need to listen to this book so that you can learn all the dirty little details about DC and all their corruption.

    "America will be saved by flyover nation"

    I enjoyed this book immensely. Dana did a great job of capturing the hearts, souls and feelings of flyover Nation people.. we aren't fully wake up. and when get stop feeling sick and tired of being sick and tired and stop crying about being patronised by the progressive right and left we will do something in this country that hasn't been done since 1776 we have the courage we have the will we have the nerve to determination to fight back. Dana thank you for the inspiring book will listen to it several times they realize how much I'm a flyover Nation girl

    A follower of Jesus. An avid fan of historical religion (fiction or non). I am still a lover of Stephen King because of his writing.

    "Behold, Truth!"

    This book (superbly narrated) truly captures the feelings and beliefs of an entire segment of society that is largely ignored and/or ridiculed by most media sources. Do you think you know the Flyovers? I ask only that you listen, consider, and reevaluate your own beliefs. Well worth the effort.

    "An excellent listen of most of the US."
    What made the experience of listening to Flyover Nation the most enjoyable?

    I could put names and faces to a whole host of the people she talks about, obviously not her experience, but I did have a great deal of common feelings about what she describes.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    This book is good to read before voting in the 2016 election.

    "Truly exceptional."

    This is possibly one of the finest examples of what conservative folks in the United States are all about. Well written yet unpretentious and also well read. I consider it a masterpiece of truth and I hope it will be revealing, persuasive and influential to thousands of readers. Thank you Dana!

    "Nothing Exceptional"

    This book doesn't really cover any new ground or offer new solutions. She hits the wave tops on a lot of our issues, but never takes it to the next level. Dana reminisces about her childhood and wonderfully describes middle America in this book. There's just not enough meat here.

    "We need more Dana"

    We need more minds like hers, unapologetically intelligent.
    I like they way Dana thinks, analyzes issues and openly speaks about where she comes from. I wish we had more people like her.
    definitely recommend.
