Gingrich believes that this ambitious agenda can be accomplished, but only if it receives grassroots support. The entrenched political system, with its lobbyists, bloated bureaucracies, and the complicity of the media, is too self-serving to fix itself, he stresses. Concise and clearly presented, Winning the Future is long on specifics and short on rhetoric, and it succeeds as a springboard for political discourse. Gingrich's aim is clearly to inspire citizens to take responsibility for the county's direction by demanding more of their government and their leaders. --Shawn Carkonen

If for no other reason, this is a must read for simple civic awareness, and knowledge for the informed voter. See also his prior book on health care, and try to find another candidate this far ahead in addressing these issues.
Gingrich's 1994 Contract with America sought to apply a leash to an out of control Congress, discourage illegitimacy, balance the federal budget, crack down on crime, keep U.S. troops away from U.N. military commanders, end the welfare dole, and a bunch of other stuff you can find in an appendix at the end of this book. For the most part, Gingrich and his republican colleagues succeeded in fulfilling the contract. Now Newt is articulating a new Contract with America, a 21st Century contract if you will, that identifies a host of pressing new issues that he feels our country must deal with if it is to survive.Read more ›
This book is not without controversy; the section on activist judges and the centrality of God in defining America are sure to ruffle more than a few feathers. Then again, the Newt Gingrich we know is not one to ever shy away from expressing honest opinions and beliefs, so his ability to speak politically without necessarily being political (diplomatic) is commendable.
Winning The Future is an extremely important blueprint for either the Republicans and/or Democrats. There's no reason to think that Gingrich's book is for Republicans only. For any party, for any politician, and for any citizen, the opportunities presented here to help steer - and change - the course of American civilization are bountiful. Let's hope in the near future at least some of Gingrich's ideas presented in this book are implemented for the benefit of the American people. There are too few politicians of Newt Gingrich's caliber to think and address important issues as expressed in Winning The Future. His leadership and ideas are needed more than ever.
