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.

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.

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.

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

Most of the book was good

Most of the content was good. Could have done without the implied hick/redneck references to everyone in “flyover”. There are number of times when she implies that everyone in “flyover” shares the same values. Beyond that, it was ok.

captures the spirit of the "flyover"

rich with grit, thought, fire and humor and other honest flavors of the big "flyover". thank you, Dana. you are expecting the thoughts of many proud Americans... me, bring an immigrant from Russia.. I can't agree with you more on freedoms and values that make this country quite exceptional.. and also bestow a certain responsibility on its citizens. one that many of the so called "progressives" (or simply big govt socialists) fail to appreciate.
