Publisher's Summary

The host of Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight offers a blistering critique of the new American ruling class, the elites of both parties, who have taken over the ship of state, leaving the rest of us, the citizen-passengers, to wonder: How do we put the country back on course?

Read if you want to hear about how ridiculous the ruling elite are

. I rarely read or listen to non-fiction books on the political climate of America. I get my news left, right and center and try to find the truth. I’m not a regular watcher of Fox nor CNN. Truthfully I listen to talk radio (from NPR to KFI). I found myself, as a moderate (and a scientist) agreeing with basically every single element of this book. I’m now looking for an article that tries to find reasons to disagree.
Overall his voice played well in the car and in headphones during runs. It was the right tempo without having to speed it up or slow it down. The writing was straight forward and yes, I laughed, gasped, hit my steering wheel and yelled with agreement while running, driving, making dinner, washing dishes, and cleaning the house. I have recommend this book to my friends and family. My 18 year old son even loved listening one night while I cooked. It sparked a great 45 minute dinner conversation. Thank you Tucker Carlson.

Great book

Tucker can really cut to the truth about many subjects. Going to read again, I bought audible and hard back to have in my book shelf as a reference book.

Not what I expected!

Tucker Carlson hit it out of the park with this book. I’m a independent voter. I could careless about either major party. This book really points the fingers at who/what’s to blame for Trump, and how things are not going to get better unless we have change, and change is not what our ruling class wants. The ruling class is not who you expected and politicians are the puppets. Great read!

Beyond Expectations

This book flew by. I was in the intro and before I knew it, the book was almost done. So many topics Tucker brings fresh light to. This book is def not to be missed. I cherish my time very much and this is a book well worth it. Thank you Tucker for narrating your book.

Intelligent and insightful.

Tucker, as always, makes a fantastic, fact based, argument about the current state of our country and really exposed the elite's thought process and motivation.

Best political book in quite a while

At 6.5 hours in length SHIP OF FOOLS is shorter than most political books, but the concise statements of issues and proposals of solutions it are uniquely focused. I've never watched his Fox News program but I may give it a try.

Great book

Excellent, wish it was twice as long. Found myself listening to it passively in my car and actively at home.
