    • I loved this book. If you are scared for the direction in which our country is going, this book explains it perfectly! I knew beforehand how important it was to get out and vote, but I can guarantee I will never miss a chance to vote again. Well done Mr. Carlson!!!
    • OK, I admit it. I'm a conservative who was once firmly in the other camp. I went to college in the sixties when Time Magazine declared that God had died and professors taught that government was the answer to all evils. I'm not sure exactly when I made my conversion from both tenets, but they surely fell for me over time. Now, I'm saddened to hear the non-stop complaints from both sides about our nation's present situation. It can be confusing, especially if you consider that we rarely hear the real truth of either side's argument. What we so often hear is the inflammatory screams of those who have hidden agendas and will stop at nothing to win their point. If you do nothing else, at least read the introduction to Tucker Carlson's new book, Ship of Fools, How a Selfish Ruling Class is Bringing America to the Brink of Revolution. Up front, I'm not the world's biggest Carlson fan. I sometimes watch, but immediately switch channels when he and his guest start talking and laughing over each other. But his analysis is usually pretty well thought out and his commentary clearly spoken. Such is the case with the book. For my liberal friends who might think this book is only more biased blather for the base, let me assure you Carlson severely skewers both sides, and rightly so, for their cavalier, elitist and entitled attitudes. He lays out the history of how we got here and describes the seriousness our current situation. The scary thing for me was the thought that our national problem is eerily similar to the ones we have right here in in my little rural community. My prayer is that the first of my ill-taught early misconceptions will save us from the second. May it be so!
    • This novel was more like sitting down with a good historian and having a fine political conversation than most of the books being written in our divisive country. Its filled with facts, recent ones, that show how our liberal representatives in political power have changed the playbook without so much as a whisper from the conservative base. What's up was down and what was down is now up.This is not a boring fact jammed book that needs to be read in small doses! No, this is a short but very profound look at what the "ship of fools" in the liberal left wing of politics has done to our country. Its now okay to accost anyone who doesn't buy into your color of a democratic republic, disrupt their lives, destroy their property, etc.. Tucker Carlson is a great TV commentator and as it turns out he knows how to put together enough information about our recent past political lives to make for a intelligent look at what this country is doing to itself.Tucker gives just enough information to help you remember this recent past and to groan over the passage of this once great Republic. And he does so with a sense of humor and some marrow divisive information. Some of the information is so astonishing, you'll think he's talking about another country; but unfortunately, he's not. Where once other countries looked to us as that beacon of light on a hill, they no longer envy our way of life.Don't miss this opportunity to quickly assimilate Tucker's information before it all tumbles down around us. The cover alone is worth the price of the book. We're sinking our own ship and nobody seems to understand nor care as long as they get to participate. Well done Tucker, highly recommended.
    • 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.
    • This read best explains my dissatisfaction with the DC ruling class and my only wish is that all current and future politicians take the time to read and understand this.
