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?

common sense opinions

Tucker hits home with his facts and opinions regarding how healthy societies stay healthy. I agree with Tucker that the democratic party and the Republican party have always kept each other in check and despite differences, we had far more in common with each other and for the most part we were civil to each other.....we have strayed so far from this dynamic that I'm actually nervous about sharing my opinion now.....and that's not good....

Eye opening narrative on America's elite class.

Articulates everything you've suspected, but didn't know how to say about the current state of American politics.

No matter what your political persuasion happens to be—this book is a “must read.”

I live in Silicon Valley, California. 75% of people in my upscale hometown did not and could never fathom voting for Donald Trump. Don’t let the fact that the author is Tucker Carlson—who has a nightly show on Fox—scare you away. This book is nothing like what you might think. Don’t miss it.

thanks tucker

i’m a traditional free-speech, anti-war liberal who has always had a healthy mistrust of the elites. but apparently now i’m a nazi or white supremacist or something.

tucker is a true patriot and perhaps the last clear thinker on the mainstream media. i don’t agree with him on everything, but i think he truly cares about finding the truth and about making the world a better place for everyone.

my main issue is that in his appropriate critique of the modern, liberal, institutionalized approach to environmentalism, he’s thrown out the baby with the bath water. i am convinced that humanity *is* disrupting delicate climate balances; it’s just that the liberal approach and solution is obviously idiotic. but maybe i’m wrong.

tucker if you’re reading this, you’re the fucking man and a great american.

Eye opener

The more I listen the more, I realize that my America is getting as bad as I feared, but now I understand the why of my fear. Tucker Carlson has done an incredible job of laying it out.

Wow!

I loved the truth! Finally! How quickly people forget the origins of good causes. They become unrecognizable when first power then the lure of money present themselves.

When you laid out the original intent of Betty Friedan in the Feminine Mystic, I wondered why I felt so out of sync with the women’s movement. Today is not my woman’s movement.

Same for those who say good things as politicians with the intent of using us for power and to help themselves to our tax dollars. Both parties.

Great hearing Tucker read it to us on a recent trip.

Thanks! We’ve got a lot to discuss at home!

Sextuple dose Tucker Carlson Tonight.

In a modern dysfunctional society where individuals are no longer free to think for themselves, they are discouraged from thinking or acting as individual. Creativity or individual responsibilities are suppressed if they aren’t a part of a group think, but there are still individuals out there, speaking and thinking for themselves. Tucker Carlson, the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness and group think.

Now, if you are familiar with the television program that bears his name, Tucker Carlson Tonight, with this book you are getting his journalistic unbiased approach to daily political topics. We live in a world, where it is almost impossible to avoid politics. If you have in the past, you might as well start paying attention, and this would be the right place to start, with this book, similar to the nightly series, but uninterrupted in a book form. It gives the illustration of the political climate in the United States and how it relates to the Average citizens and the ruling class, the damages it has cause and maybe the path to restore common sense and stability.

Hopefully, saving the Ship of fools, from falling over the edge, to destruction.

Awesome

Great. Sound was clear and loud enough. I really like the fact that it was read by the author. Much more personal that way. This was the very first audible book that I have ever listened to in my life. Every book I read up until now, I have read the physical book. This audible format where the book is read to me while I am commuting or working out, etc.is awesome! I am cancelling my membership for now ONLY because I am trying to get out of debt and the $14.95 per month is just not allowed in my budget at this time. Thanks

Listen and Learn

He did a lot of research and put it all together so it was interesting and easy to follow and understand. I am now going to read along with the audio.
