Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Love him or loathe him, veteran rocker, commentator, and neo-libertarian rabble-rouser conservationist Nugent is hard to ignore. His "manifesto," a collection of essays and ruminations, will prove bracing but familiar to those acquainted with his antic, aggressive voice-in-the-wilderness style and often controversial stances on hot-button issues like gun control, welfare and self-reliance. Among loud, provocative analysis of a dozen issues (plus a chapter devoted to his last essay collection, 2001's God, Guns & Rock and Roll), Nugent puts together an "If I were president" list that includes eliminating welfare except for military personnel, making prisoners plant trees, forcing people in New Orleans live on higher ground and executing child molesters. While many of his suggestions-meant to "piss you off" as well as think-are pat, or even curmudgeonly ("I am convinced that most kids today have never heard the word 'posture'"), they're balanced by common sense and a healthy respect for the Golden Rule. Longtime fans will revel in Nugent's loudmouth charm and his rhapsodic take on discovering the guitar; whether he'll persuade newcomers that global warming is "the greatest hoax ever played on Americans," or that he himself is "a large, in charge, ruggedly independent, angry black man" is doubtful, but this maverick never claimed to be a uniter.

From the Inside Flap

It's About Time

America has been craving leadership--and at last a gun-slinging, mega-rock star, deerslayer, and patriot has stepped forward to provide it.

Make way for Ted Nugent.

Cocked, locked, and ready to rock, the Motor City Madman, the thinking man's Abraham Lincoln, has unleashed the ultimate high-octane political manifesto for the ages in Ted, White, and Blue--the most important patriotic statement since the Constitution.

In Ted, White, and Blue you'll discover:

* Why war is the answer to so many of our current problems
* Why if Ted were a Mexican, he'd start a revolution (and how, since he's not, we can control our own borders)
* How to put Uncle Sam on a diet (a waste-watchers program for government)
* The Ted Plan for energy independence by 2018--how to keep America rockin' into the future
* How to change the world for the better through the power of God, guns, and rock `n' roll

If you care about America, if you want to preserve, protect, and defend the land of the free and the home of the brave, if you're fed up with lazy, whining, fear-mongering, government-gorging Al Gores, Michael Moores, and Obamaniacs, then you need to read Ted, White, and Blue: The Nugent Manifesto.

As a fee-only fiduciary in the business of providing investment advice, I'm dealing with a lot of random emotions these days as a result of our inept Beltway policies and unconscionable Wall Street greed. These "leaders" of ours lost their adult sense of reason around the risks associated with reality, and how to prudently manage them, in this case with money (and lots of it).

Needing a little shot-in-the-arm of clarity around this concept of human nature and risks inherent in it, I busted open my ordered-in-advance copy of Ted Nugent credos as soon as it arrived yesterday. Reading a portion with two of my three recently adopted kids last night, we all felt energized with renewed conviction for the important things we're here to do in our lives. To see such a misunderstood man write about how in performing life's most difficult yet necessary tasks, "...it is equally manly to bawl my eyes out, sobbing uncontrollably over the heartbreak and trauma of such an act" (page 12), would surely help many to see that this is not a crazed lunatic, but one of the greatest humanitarians (and thankfully rock and rollers) to walk our planet in our lifetimes. The man is not perfect (and who is?) but he loves our Constitution, Declaration of Independence and Emancipation Proclamation ("The American Way") like few I've ever come across.

With our global markets in turmoil as they are today, the need for elemental management of risk in complete awareness of primal reality is on high. Hunka Ted delivers exactly that, with intensity and certainty.

Arrogant? You bet... On topic, intelligent ideals with passion? You got that right! Ted, White and Blue should be read by every free thinking, rational American who believes in freedom, the Constitution, and old fashioned morals. It's really a shame that people like Ted more than likely do not run for public office. America could really benefit from many of the points covered by Ted in this book. I really enjoyed reading (for once) the truth spoken without fear about how far America has drifted to an age of entitlement. Freedom loving people need not just take it anymore, and stand up for what is right. Hold our politicians feet to the fire. We must realize what the founding fathers stood for, and what they believed people are capable of when the Government isn't involved. Ted's book doesn't just fill your head with useless banter or complaining. It most certainly encourages a different perspective. It's a perspective that brings your head out of the sand and into the fight. Love freedom? Then you'll love this book, but only if you have a spine and believe in yourself that is.

Format: Paperback
1. I've been listening to Ted since his "Double-Live Gonzo" days and I'm almost as conservative as Ted is... But this is a book review and the bottomline is, whatever your political philosophy, after reading a few chapters of Ted's semi-narssistic high energy rants, any honest person (even the most hardcore conservative) is going to get... well, basically bored. I mean, can anyone imagine having a "conversation" with this dude? He's like one of those guys at a party that just keeps talking and talking and talking... not realizing that people can't wait for some excuse to escape. Hey, he may be 94% "right" in what he's talking about but it just makes for plain boring reading.
2. In summary, conservatives will find nothing new or enlightening here, liberals won't even read this book, and those who don't know what their political philosophy may find this non-PC book refreshingly enlightening.

Format: Paperback
Ted, White, and Blue is raw meat for tea party conservatives, appropriate for the great hunter Ted Nugent. Few would consider the Nuge an intellectual, but his opinions, as stated here, are grounded in serious cultural and political thought. He's the real deal; he's back-to-basics, strict Constitiutional, and personal responsibility. In addition, Nugent not only chronicles what's with America today, he offers practical solutions.

Ted Nugent is a boundless dynamo. What makes him unique is his unequaled passion and zeal. This is also his biggest problem with his detractors. His larger than life persona prevents him from being taken seriously by many. I belive Nugent to be a patriot in the mold of Samuel Adams and Thomas Paine. He loves liberty and accepts responsibility. Maybe that makes him an anachronism, but it shouldn't. America is on its way to becoming Greece right now; listen to the Nuge before its too late.

This was a great book. It was a fresh breath of common sense in a world sick with political correctness. We need more patriots such as Mr. Nugent to speak out against the tyranny we are now expieriencing.
