In this book (previously published as Crippled America), we're going to look at the state of the world right now. It's a terrible mess, and that's putting it mildly. There has never been a more dangerous time. The politicians and special interests in Washington, DC, are directly responsible for the mess we are in. So why should we continue listening to them?

Reading this after the election, it’s amazing to know that he is doing exactly what he said he would do. This short book summarizes the Presidents focus, outlining an agenda that he is currently checking off one by one. The story also tells you more about the man behind his position, more on his personal life. It limits attack’s on others, sticks to the issues, and the why behind his passion. Definitely recommend reading.

I enjoyed every minute of it, couldn’t put it down. This book is about his life and stories about family, wrestling, strategy, philosophy etc. It is not a technical book of specifics in wrestling, so it’s appropriate for anyone, even if they have never wrestled. For my fellow wrestlers however, it will show you the mindset of a champion. I wish I could have read it in high school (80s). My dad would have loved it too. He once called Gable “a man amongst men”.

Scott has an unusual story, which is keenly interesting, and as an ultra runner, I learned much about his training method and path to eating vegan. It all makes sense. Eat healthier, run long, better health and life. I was especially interested in his take on eating vegan, and the book answered my questions. As a result, I’m moving forward to eat more vegan meals. Scott also talks about the mindset and love of running long, which is inspirational. He mentions tons of books that influenced him on philosophy, nutrition, running etc. Spoiler alert: Scott is a very intelligent guy! The book will improve your life.
