In Beyond the Messy Truth, Jones offers a blueprint for transforming our collective anxiety into meaningful change. Tough on Donald Trump but showing respect and empathy for his supporters, Jones takes aim at the failures of both parties before and after Trump's victory. He urges both sides to abandon the politics of accusation and focus on real solutions. Calling us to a deeper patriotism, he shows us how to get down to the vital business of solving, together, some of our toughest problems.

I have always been a fan of Van Jones, whenever I see him talking on CNN I see how he throws all of his emotions in to his words, and it made a lot of sense to me. however, I've always said to my self maybe because I lean more to the liberal side.
Listening/Reading this book made me see the true America in his words. laying down his life timeline through his struggles, experiences, mistakes that lead to his marvelous conclusion and solution to the biggest threat to this country which is hate.
the part of Prince story, really moved. Newt Gingrich I never thought of looking at his great accomplishments.
just read and you will become a different better human.
read it and you love this country more, Red or Blue this book will touch your heart and shake your mind.
