Editorial Reviews

Review

“This guy Walker is one of the gutsiest, toughest, strongest, [most] committed guys I have seen in Republican politics in a long time.”

Rush Limbaugh


“Governor Walker’s principled leadership and common-sense reforms are moving Wisconsin in the right direction.”

Paul Ryan


“He had the courage to take it on, even when it got ugly, and he never stopped.”

Nikki Haley, governor of South Carolina


“Results matter. And that, more than anything else, explains why Scott Walker won.”

Stephen Hayes, The Weekly Standard

"Most books by incumbent politicians are not worth the paper they never should have been written on. If, however, enough voters read Walker’s nonfiction thriller, it will make him a — perhaps the — leading candidate for his party’s 2016 presidential nomination."
The Washington Post

--This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Union electrician here, I *will* be BUYING this book RIGHT NOW & will edit my post later.

Heard nothing but lies and garbage about Walker from day ONE from my Local, but I havent heard any command to do this from my Union (but they did illegally threaten me to sign the recall petition, AND left all around work on breakroom tables and work benches, using company email to tell us to sign it - which was also against company policy. Upon NOT signing it, I was followed around after ALL work I did, and reported to Human Resources for a "safety violation" which NEVER HAPPENED, and was almost fired while I was an apprentice. Who is the one causing people to lose jobs now? I pay Union dues for this?

I've voted for Walker AND voted for him again in the recall. All I hear is how the Union says we'll be a "right to work state" and we'll all be part-time employees. What a crock of horse apples.

I will be donating a dollar to Scott Walker for EVERY negative and fake review of this book, so please, KEEP IT UP.
IBEW Southeast Wisconsin.

Format: Hardcover
Most books written by politicians are horrible. They are often written by someone considering a run for the presidency. They follow a standard bio format that runs toward self-hagiography. Usually these kind of books are virtually unreadable. This is different.

First, Walker has a co-author (Marc Theissen) with real writing chops. This book is readable. Those who have struggled through the dreck of politicians' books know how rare that is.

Second, it is interesting. Since it focusses almost entirely on the events surrounding the budget/union battles in Wisconsin, there is actual action and activity. Even those who strongly oppose Walker would find this insiders account interesting (though probably infuriating).

As a result, this is a book that is worthwhile.

Two things will annoy most any reader (but not surprise those who read politicians' books) the first is the constant refrain about "Vision". Everyone has a vision, that theme could have been dialed back. The second is the price. I know this is a hardcover but it still a lot to pay for such a work. In retrospect, I'd have been happier reading it on kindle or waiting for in store discounting.

I would love to see a book that would match this from the other side's point of view. There are several books about the Act 10 battles. This is a good addition but I think Marty Beil (Wisconsin AFSCME head) should write his account.

The ratings on this book aren't by people that actually read the book. Rather, this review section has become a battle of who can vote the most. Pro-Walker or anti-walker. Well, he showed Wisconsin twice...TWICE that the majority, by a pretty darn good margin I might add, support Walker.

So big labor has been posting all over in attempt to get all of it's cronies to come here and vote 1-star.

That my friends, is why the votes are either 1, or 5 stars. Not much in-between.

We need more politicians like Scott Walker. He protects the little guy unlike the crooked unions that claim to protect the little guy but actually manipulate and take advantage of them. Gov. Walker is courageous and of clear mind.

Format: Kindle Edition
Gov. Walker is a true success story on how genuine conservatives can not only win, but make a difference that matters to the future of America. His commitment and integrity are above reproach, and he is a shining example of what the conservative movement can accomplish.

Unintimidated tells the story of the opposition he faced, and defeated, from extreme elements of the left, and how his conservative policies have made WI a better and more prosperous state.

Like our Governor, the people who actually read this book remain unintimidated by the hoards of union shills who were told to come give the book a bad review without reading it. For those of us who lived through this insanely expensive nightmare of the public unions temper-tantrum, we applaud our Governor for the hard work, the hardships, and the fight to make Wisconsin a fiscally responsible state.

Gov. Scott Walker is a hero to those that are over taxed by unions gone wild with public employees. They (#wiunion) cannot get past the fact Wisconsin voters are happy with his actions. CCW has come and were loaded for bear !!! Love this Book because its REAL!!
