Praise for The Thom Hartmann Reader


“Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren.”
-John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

“Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs. “
-Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.

“Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him.”
-Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist

“Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America.”
-Van Jones, cofounder of RebuildTheDream.com and author of The Green Collar Economy

“Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change.”
-Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films

“Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions.”
-Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth

“With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again.”
-Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO

“Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization.”
-David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World

“Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act.”
-Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously

“In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience.”
-Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man

About the Author

More About the Author

Thom Hartmann is the four-time Project Censored Award-winning, New York Times best-selling author of 23 books currently in print in over a dozen languages on five continents.
Hartmann is also an internationally known speaker on culture and communications, an author, and an innovator in the fields of psychiatry, ecology, and economics.
The co-founder (with his wife, Louise) and former Executive Director of The New England Salem Children's Village (1978) and The Hunter School (1997), he has led national innovations in the areas of residential treatment for abused children and private/public education for learning-disabled children.
He has helped set up hospitals, famine relief programs, schools, and refugee centers in India, Uganda, Australia, Colombia, Russia, and the United States through the German-based Salem International program. Formerly rostered with the State of Vermont as a psychotherapist, founder of The Michigan Healing Arts Center, and licensed as an NLP Trainer by Richard Bandler (who wrote the foreword to one of Thom's books), he was the originator of the revolutionary "Hunter/Farmer Hypothesis" to understand the psychiatric condition known as Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).
A guest faculty member at Goddard College in Vermont, he also synthesized the "Younger/Older Culture model" for describing the underpinnings - and possible solutions - to the world's ecological and socio-political crises, suggesting that many of our problems are grounded in cultural "stories" which go back thousands of years.
Leonardo DiCaprio was inspired by Thom's book "The Last Hours of Ancient Sunlight" to make the movie "The 11th Hour" (in which Thom appears), and Warner Brothers is making a movie starring DiCaprio and Robert De Niro from the book Thom co-authored with Lamar Waldron, "Legacy of Secrecy."
Talkers Magazine named Thom Hartmann as the 8th most important talk show host in America in 2011, 2012, and 2013 (10th the two previous years), and for three of the past five years the #1 most important progressive host, in their "Heavy Hundred" ranking. His radio show is syndicated on for-profit radio stations nationwide by Dial-Global, on non-profit and community stations nationwide by Pacifica, across the entire North American continent on SiriusXM Satellite radio, on cable systems nationwide by Cable Radio Network (CRN), on its own YouTube channel, via Livestream on its own Livestream channel, via subscription podcasts, worldwide through the US Armed Forces Network, and through the Thom Hartmann App in the App Store. The radio show is also simulcast as TV in realtime into nearly 60 million US and Canadian homes by the Free Speech TV Network on Dish Network, DirectTV, and cable TV systems nationwide.
His evening TV program, The Big Picture, is wholly owned by his own production company, produced in the RT studios, and licensed to and carried by Free Speech TV in the US, and into over 600 million homes in 104 countries via broadcast and cable by the RT TV network, and distributed worldwide on the web on Hulu.
As an entrepreneur, he's founded several successful businesses which still are operating, and lived and worked with his wife, Louise, and their three (now adult) children on several continents.
He was born and grew up in Michigan, and retains strong ties to the Midwest, although he and Louise have lived in New Hampshire, Vermont, Georgia, Germany, and Oregon...and now live on a boat in Washington D.C. with their attack-cat, Higgins.

Format: Paperback
Between my doing a radio show interviewing the Creme de la Creme, and founding and running conferences on brain research, positive psychology and the science of story, I've had more than my share of opportunities to talk with, listen to, read and get to know brain surgeons, rocket scientists and philosophers, from e-company founders like Craig of Craigslist and Arriana Huffington to Chomsky and Zinn, Greenwald and Kucinich.

Thom Hartmann stands out as unique for a few reasons. First is his breadth and DEPTH of knowledge. I've never met anyone who knows so much, exhaustively, in detail, about so many disparate areas as Thom Hartmann. Whether it's brain science, anthropological perspectives on indigenous Maori tribes, the latest take on the diagnosis and treatment of neurobehavioral continuum "disorders" like ADHD and Autism, 18th century constitutional history or the state of the economy in Argentina, Hartmann is brilliant in his depth of knowledge and his ability to integrate it.

Perhaps it's the integration that's so powerful. Perhaps it's being able to pull such far flung bits of information and putting them into new ways of seeing and understanding.

If you've read one or two of Thom's book, this is a great place to drink deeper from the well. if you've never read any Hartmann, wow, are you in for a major treat.

Once you get a taste, you'll surely, if you do media, want to check out his radio and TV shows as well. But unlike many radio and TV personalities, Hartmann started off as a writer and thinker and THEN moved to radio, then TV. His mind is amazing, but balanced with a great heart and soul too.

Thom Hartmann is an interesting man on many levels. He never finished college. He has ADD. He has started several successful businesses. He and his wife, Louise, have been partners in various ventures including starting a school for troubled children in Vermont. The Hartmanns have devoted their life to helping others. In addition, Hartmann is a lifelong student. He has also written many books on many topics. This Thom Hartmann Reader gives you a glimpse into Hartmann's life and thoughts. Of the many intriguing experiences Thom relates in his book, the one that I keep coming back to is when he relates how he found 12 volumes on the life of Thomas Jefferson in a home he and his wife bought in Vermont and how that cache of books led Hartmann to write several books and articles. The find also deepened Hartmann's knowledge and interest in history.

My husband is an avid fan of Thom Hartmann. He watches him each night on Free Speech TV. This book is so neat, as it is a compilation of many of Thom's ideas. You don't need to read the whole book--my husband just loved this gift. Another Prime item, delivered for free in two days to my door step. Great job, Amazon!

This book was very enjoyable and doesn't mince words on his opinions. Not everyone will agree with his philosophy and remarks but it does make you think.

Thom Hartmann is a fountain of wisdom for those willing to peel back their illusions and look at the truth of where we are going as a human race. He is very well-versed in philosophy, political science, government, education, history, social studies, and religion. A must-read!
