    • Politics isn't a favorite genre for me. But, I purchased and read this book because the title grabbed me and I was curious to see what it was about. What I discovered is that Tucker Carlson is a very perceptive observer of the current affairs happening in America. It's fair to say I have pondered extensively some of the very things Carlson wrote about in this excellent book, but he said them far more eloquently than I'd have ever been able to do. What I really appreciated was that he backed up his statements with statistics and real-world examples. Carlson hits the mark when he says that the career politicians and other elites in this country have our country on a path of self-destruction. Unlike Carlson, I can't find any reason for optimism that things will change. The entrenched professional politician class on both sides of the aisle in Washington that has made politics a life-long career are destroying democracy. I see no way that will ever change. A professional class of political rulers is something our founding fathers never intended and warned us to resist. But, I think we have already passed the point of no return. As bad as circumstances are in this country now, I think they will likely only become worse. Nevertheless, at the very least Carlson here gives us a rational and accurate explanation for why things are what they are and how we got here.
    • As an independent, I was looking forward to reading a non-partisan critique of the American political system and the current group of grifters in Congress and the Senate. Unfortunately, aside from a few barbs against George Bush and Paul Ryan, this is just a unsubstantiated critique against liberals and left leaning ideology. The author completely lost the plot at the end of the book when he critiques science and extols the virtue of corporate polluters. The author is a typical Fox News pundit who is serving the Koch brothers and is seeking a kleptocratic society run by corporations at the expense of the middle class.
    • Tucker Carlson in not only the voice of reason, but of sanity in a world where liberal politicians legislate from court rulings, manipulation, social media complicity and propaganda, instead of the ballot box where they cannot win. Tucker identifies the Useful Idiots who are truly normalizing subversion and bastardizing our Constitution and Democracy
    • I purchased the audiobook (read by the man himself) because I enjoy Tucker Carlson's cadence on his show, but I will definitely be picking up a hard copy as well for family. Tucker has always been a centrist of sorts IMO despite what some believe, and he is unafraid to give his opinion on why Trump got elected and the refusal of either side to appease their constituents.Its full of important and interesting information and poignant lines, one that stood out to me in particular: "Enough money has been spent on recent conflicts to retire all student loan debt in America -- yet the world is less stable than it was 15 years ago."I wouldn't necessarily call this a "pro-Trump" book, but more a practical analysis of the 2016 election from a relatively objective point of view (with Tucker's typical 5 star banter).
    • I like to watch Tucker Carlson's show on the Fox network. This book reads just like his opening monologues on his show, and I think that some (maybe much) of its content is a direct spinoff from that show. His writing sounds just like he speaks on his program. It is terse, compact, and often riveting. It is well written, and I did not observe any "typos" in its pages. He also provides excellent summaries of a wide ranging set of topics. For all of that, I would give the book a 5 star rating.However, the book has a serious weakness for anyone who desires to use it to identify sources either easily or accurately. For examples, Tucker often directly quotes individuals (using quotation marks) but does not provide the sources where he obtained the quoted information. Many times he will refer to articles in Time magazine, or the Washington Post, or the Los Angeles Times, etc., but does not give the author of the articles, nor the titles, nor the dates. This makes a reader wonder precisely what those sources are. I recognize that Tucker is writing for an "ordinary reader," but for any reader who desires to have precise source data, this book is completely lacking. For that reason, I gave it a 4 star rating.
