Editorial Reviews

Review

“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.”
George F. Will, syndicated columnist

“With so many people already speculating as to who might be the front-runner for the Republican nomination for president in 2016, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s new book may be especially worth reading. It shows a man of real depth, and with an impressive track record that ought to overshadow the rhetoric of others, especially among the Washington Republicans.”
Thomas Sowell, syndicated columnist

“Walker’s timely book clearly demonstrates the essentials of talent and character in the ranks of state executives.”
The Washington Times

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.

A revealing book by the man at the center of Wisconsin's government reform which resulted in the mobs of union thugs at the state Capitol in Madison. Walker's experience dealing with the union bosses as the chief executive in Milwaukee County served him well as governor. The pragmatism and political skill of Scott Walker and the Republican leadership in both houses at the capitol is laid out in this book. Walker was able to break the stranglehold the union bosses had on the entire state and local governments and turn a $3.6 billion deficit into a surplus. An incredible turn around from the previous administration for the taxpayers in Wisconsin!

I haven't read it, but think you should know that most of these reviews are written by people who have not yet read the book (negative and positive reviews). A union Facebook page is calling on its members to negatively review the book in hopes of lowering the overall rating - even cheering that it went from 2.5 stars to 2 stars ([...]). That's pretty sickening. Review the book on its content, not your political affiliation.

Look for reviews that cite page numbers or specifics, not the content that has been taken out of context and linked on the union's Facebook page.

Living in Wisconsin, I consider Gov. Walker a hero! Who else has challenged the unions? Certainly Gov. Doyle didn't balance the budget! Read "Bullies" and you will see who is against Walker and will do anything to bring him down.

Excellent coverage of the fight against a corrupt union bent on bankrupting a state. A wonderful "How To" roll back decades of union greed and excess.

This book is awesome. The union thuggery strategy of barraging this site (and others), with poor reviews, is an example of the kind of tactics that Scott Walker (AND WISCONSIN) had to deal with. I thank God that Scott wasn't intimidated! They (the unions) tried their best to intimidate business owners and citizens in general. People need to know just what kind of low-handed, and immoral, tactics these thugs use! The more people that see this - the more people will want to see their State go to 'Right to Work', (as I do)! I HIGHLY recommend this book,.... it will enlighten you.

Living in southeast Wisconsin, I've been following Scott Walker's career through the news since he was elected county executive of Milwaukee. Having read his book, I find that it is a very accurate description of what's gone down in Wisconsin over the last several years. Though I'd heard reports on the internet about the death threats to his family, reading the accounts of these threats in his book shows the level of hatred the unions and liberals have for him. Anyone on facebook can see this for themselves when Mr. Walker posts Holiday wishes or wishing the Packers well, and sees how quickly the replies from the liberals turn vile and ugly.
It's being reported on the news now that Unions have directed their membership to post negative reviews here on Amazon. I've read many of them and am not surprised that few of these "reviewers", if any, have actually purchased or read the book. Just spreading more hatred and showing the world their true colors.
What frankly surprises me is that Amazon is allowing this practice of negativity to go on. I'd thought better of Amazon. Perhaps I'm naive to have thought so.
Anyway, the book is well written, accurate, and in my estimation shows insight of Scott Walkers thoughts and processes in his office and also a vivid picture of how ugly politics can become. Well worth the read. I have the Kindle edition.
