5.0 out of 5 stars Straight Talk with Rare Insight August 8, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This book is a breath of fresh air. Not just for the great stories like hunting with Aerosmith and busting drug dealers backstage, but for his insights. Ted Nugent is not afraid to tell the truth--not just about God, Guns, and Rock 'n' Roll, but about society in general. The solution to schoolyard shootings is not to take away our guns (it's too late for that), but to spend time with our children. Yes, a radical concept. The Motor City Madman actually advocates taking control of your family, your life, and your very survival.
It's also refreshing to see one of the few (if not only) rock stars from the '70s who never took drugs.
It's sad to see that Ted Nugent is seen as a radical--he says families should spend time with their kids and that drugs and alcohol are bad for you. When I grew up this was called common sense. Thank God for Ted's refresher course.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweaty Teddy: Family Man August 24, 2000
Format:Hardcover
Ted's book of "rantings" is a fun, fast read. The guy is "spot-on" regarding gun-rights and takes a common-sense position that is difficult to argue with. Here's a conservative guy who loves his family, God (gasp), guns (gasp!), and hunting (GASP!). There probably isn't a liberal alive that will like this book or will spend the time to really think about some of the things that Ted is talking about--pity.
Ted spends a lot of time talking about hunting and nature, and his love of the two. Although, I'm not a hunter, it made me much more interested in the sport.
He also discusses his family and how he has been so successful in creating a solid, close-knit unit. At times his writing is funny, sad, and touching.
Anyone who reads this will have to decide that Ted--who describes himself as "just a guitar player"--is one of the "good guys".

4.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading for all parents! August 16, 2000
Format:Hardcover
Ted Nugent may be a wild man, but he's a wild man whose heart is in the right place. What's important? Family first! His devotion to his wife and kids and other family members is exemplary. His aversion to drugs, alcohol and tobacco is amazing, considering his chosen field of endeavor. And he's right on target (no pun intended) when it comes to people's fascination with guns -- why not take this and channel it in a positive manner? Teach your kids gun safety and handling from an early age, just the way you teach them that the stove is hot but useful, matches can be dangerous but useful, the family car is potentially dangerous but useful, etc. Forget this Million Mom march stuff -- quit marching and go home, Moms AND Dads, and spend time with your kids and make sure you know where they are and what they're doing! And read this book -- by the way, you'll really enjoy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nuge Memoirs Dripping with Spirit & Attitude July 27, 2000
Format:Hardcover
God, Guns and Rock-n-Roll is a collection of essays, rants, diatribes and stories told in gonzo style by the inexhaustible Ted Nugent. Loud mouthed, fist waving and in your face, this roller coaster ride celebration of individualism and pride demands the reader to react. Where most of Nuge's contemporaries have drugged themselves to death, Ted's life-long love affair with Mother Nature has him rocking into the new millenium. If you've got an open mind you might find that Ted and his huntin' buddies are not the bloodthirsty Bambi killers the liberal media would have you believe; rather, the hunter is portrayed accurately as active participant and steward of the world's wildlife. Guns? Oh, Ted loves 'em. And why not? He's a law-abiding citizen who will not succumb to being blamed for the wrongs of criminals. GG&RNR takes you on the road with Ted the rockstar, in the woods with Ted the Caveman, and into the arena of politics where drooling office holding pigs are the game of the day and verbal arrows are flung! You'll laugh and you'll think. And above all, agree or disagree, you'll be entertained. And that's what Ted's been about for over 30 years!

4.0 out of 5 stars 'The Way Things Ought to Be' for the gun crowd August 19, 2000
Format:Hardcover
When I got this book, I expected no less than a ranting, raving stream-of-consciousness type of book. I was right, in a way. When Ted gets passionate, it can get pretty wild, but in a good portion of this book you get to see the more spiritual and philosophical side of Ted. He discusses the ethics, and morality of hunting, and illustrates his points quite well. I look forward to Ted's next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening the masses August 9, 2000
By Jimi
Format:Hardcover
Sure Ted's style is over the top. Sure he offends a good portion of humanity. God bless him for it! It is amazing how someone who feels passionate about who they are and what they do can draw ire from so many people. If you're expecting a classically written book, skip this one. The style is 1st person, from Ted's lips to the pages. IT'S FUN. IT'S GOOD HUMOR. If you're a whiner who thinks that limiting the God-given and Constitutionally-given right to own self-defense weaponry is the correct way to go... this book will just make you mad. However, if you're an independent thinker who would like some insight into gun ownership and hunting, with some great stories along the way... buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare Yourself for Full Bluntal Nugeity November 25, 2003
Format:Paperback
This book is F-U-N, folks. It's divided into three sections titled Cocked, Locked, and Ready to Rock (politics); The Ballistics of Spirituality -- You Can't Grill it 'Til You Kill It (hunting); and Kids, Family, and the Spirit of the Wild (family). Ted Nugent's opinions are pedal-to-the-metal, full-steam-ahead. I don't think he knows where the brake is, or what it's for. And though he can indeed spell "tact", I'm not sure he really understands the concept. (That was a compliment, by the way.) Here are some of the gems from God, Guns, & Rock 'n' Roll:

Ted Nugent on anti-gunners: "Only a coward would want fewer good guys with guns on the streets in today's world. Only a fool would support -- much less design -- such a policy of helplessness....To be against law-abiding citizens carrying concealed handguns is literally encouraging and assisting evil to have the upper hand."

Ted Nugent on the liberal media and their attitude toward guns: "I've known it forever, and Jesse Ventura figured it out pretty quick. The vast majority of America's free press doesn't report the news, they make it up. Anyone who dismisses the claims of a conspiracy is either a paid employee of the media or a deaf, dumb, and blind fool. Especially dumb."

Ted Nugent on the "coolness" of doing drugs: "Hey, I got a good idea, let's go to a jam session celebrating the spirited and creative overjuiceflow of Jimi Hendrix, Keith Moon, Mike Bloomfield, Brian Jones, Phil Lycott, Dennis Wilson, Bon Scott, John Belushi, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jerry Garcia, and a stupefying long list of the hippest idiots that ever lived. And died. Would if we could, but Jimi got high and Jimi's dead, I went huntin' and I'm still Ted....The one time Jimi saw my gun, he thought I was way out there.
