Format: Hardcover
To better understand the contents of a book it is useful to know something of the background of the author. As a person in educational leadership, I had an opportunity to get to know Guy Odom after I completed a prepublication review of his first book: MOTHERS LEADERSHIP AND SUCCESS. It is an understatement to say that Guy Odom is an unusual person of extraordinary abilities. He has achieved financial success and he is to a large extent self educated. He is a thinker, a prophet, a voracious reader, and a person with an encyclopedic knowledge of America's past coupled with a passionate concern for America's future.
Since Guy has expressed to me that AMERICA'S MAN ON HORSEBACK was intended to be satirical in nature, it is probably appropriate to quote from Voltaire's 1775 story entitled Memory's Adventure. Voltaire says: "The thinking human race is at most the hundred-thousandth part of the human race." He further states on the next page: "Satires correct no one, irritate fools, and make them more wicked." From the content of these quotations I would hesitate to predict or to recommend that AMERICA'S MAN ON HORSEBACK would or should be read by extensive numbers of readers. Guy Odom's vast background of knowledge makes it difficult at times for even the critical reader to determine those parts which are intended to be satirical and those which are intended to represent serious recommendations. A considerable portion of the book's appeal relates to the rigor one must put forth in order to achieve some semblance of understanding in relating the suggested solutions to the perceived problems.

Format: Hardcover
I am a 32 year old woman from Mexico, and will soon be an American citizen. I read Odom's "Mothers, Leadership, and Success" eight years ago. The book changed my life. I grasped the difference between myself and others. The book is a blueprint for personal achievement and growth. I really looked forward to his new book, "America's Man on Horseback." Odom combined his vast knowledge of human nature with pragmatism and humor. The outcome is strong, hilarious medicine for the current political situation in the U.S. "America's Man on Horseback" will shock and stay with you. You, like me, will see his predictions becoming reality day-by-day, sometimes faster than we would wish them to occur. I hope to profit from what awaits us. The man on horseback will straighten out the mess in Washington. Being from Mexico, I recognize the satire and reality about invading and conquering Mexico. I think most Mexicans will be angered and offended by this book. P.S. This book would be a great movie or TV miniseries.

Format: Hardcover
Imagine that it's now 2013. Illegal immigration, gang warefare, HIV infections, race tiots, rape, murder, inflation, corrupt politicians & foreign terrorism all are 10 times worse than today. Would a future Congress give the President wartime powers to clean up the mess? YES. Imagine that you are that President; this book provides you the advice you need. It is politically incorrect, inflamatory, outrageous, and refreshing!

Odom's satire is sharp - and often right on the money. This book is funny and frightening at the same time. He highlights well how far we've come, and where we might be headed!
