When he was Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich issued his first Contract with America. What was the result? Sweeping reform that shocked Washington and spurred an economic recovery for the nation, including: the first major tax cut in 16 years; real, lasting welfare reform; and four years of balanced budgets. But the challenges now are even starker, and Newt is back with a plan for American greatness that includes:
And much more. The challenges of the 21st Century are great, says Newt Gingrich, but so are the opportunities. The decisions we make over the next four years will determine our future. And no book can be more important for making the right choices than Newt Gingrich's Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract with America.

and not just interested in advancing a Political Party Line, then this is the book to read. Mr. Gingrich has given us another road map that if followed and enacted will bring back this great nation before it's to late. Enjoyable and entertaining, his writing is full of facts and history; yet not your typical boring read. I recommend it to anyone looking for the "TRUTH".
A wonderful and mature approach to the business of democracy. Newt speaks to Americans that want to earn their own way, and add value for the next generation.
Plain and simple, this book draws out everything we need to do as a nation...specifically... to ensure that our way of life continues, and that our kids and grandkids can enjoy the same freedoms we enjoy (and most of us take for granted). Great listen.
Newt has it right on everything he writes about in this book. If our current leaders used his ideas as their map the USA would be much better off.
As a die-hard Democrat who reads and listens to a lot of conservative propaganda, I'll admit that Newt has always been one of my favorites. His book opens with a self-assessment that puts even me among the majority who oppose the "secular, liberal agenda." Fun stuff! I'd say the first 1/3 is the best as it's interesting to hear him offer subtle distinctions between himself and President Bush in regards to the great threats facing America. (Of course, he's positioning himself for a run in 2008.) The second third gets bogged down in healthcare reform. It's interesting and aimed at aging Baby Boomers--just too long. The final third is rehash of everything you've been hearing from him since the Contract with America. Boring. (Minus one star.) I just wish he'd read the book instead of the bombastic, deep-voiced narrator. (Minus another star.) I've seen Newt speak on TV and in person. His voice is not great, but he's very engaging anyway.
?Winning the Future? is a straight forward, no nonsense approach to solving many of our national problems. The book is packed with innovative ideas backed up with historical facts. A must read for anyone who enjoys political debate from either side of the isle.
People of all political presuasions will find this book extremely useful. Mr. Gringrich touches some very controversial issues that must be addressed by both Democrats and Republicans.
I found this extremely interesting. Especially the historical information that isn't quite the same as others have written it. I got the feeling Mr. Gingrich was counting on readers who believe everything they read and haven't paid much attention to what actually happened. People who stir up hate by writing about so called 'anti-God liberals who bash the creator', isn't really concerned about America or it people, or he might have mentioned that the concern of many educated and responsible people are not 'anti-God', but are concerned about the hipocrates who spew hate in the name of God!
This is just one of many hate monger who cares about power, control and how much he can get into his own pockets.
