From Publishers Weekly
Former pro wrestler and Minnesota governor Ventura (Do I Stand Alone?) has been awakened out of semiretirement by his outrage over the grievous state of the country and his need to once again exercise his enormous ego by rehashing events from his life and political career. He holds forth in his typical blunt, anti-intellectual style on a range of topics including the Rolling Stones, Fidel Castro and 9/11 conspiracy theories. His diatribes are loosely linked to a travelogue as Ventura and his wife drive to Baja California in their truck-camper. Excerpts from interviews and his wife's diaries provide a welcome break from Ventura's boorish tone (although his anecdotes—particularly one involving the Dalai Lama and the film Caddyshack—are occasionally amusing). The book concludes with Ventura combining his three passions: wrestling, politics and self-adulation when he imagines running for President on a WWE ticket. Whether the reader will find that a horrifying fantasy or a hilarious one will largely determine how they feel about this book. (May)

Top customer reviews
The conclusions almost reached in this book left me wondering what the revolution was about. Yes, anti-status quo and all that good stuff, but how? When does it happen? Why can't HE start the revolution. Politically he was once in a great place to start.
It's a bit of a let down, but it can be enjoyed as a slice of history, both Gov. Ventura's and our nation's as well.
At any rate, Don't Start the Revolution Without Me is compelling and well worth reading. I highly recommend it.
In the words of JFK "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable."
I'll leave it at that and avoid wandering down the road of rehashing everything Jesse covered and away from the book by rambling on about things he didn't. Keeping it short, the Republic is in big trouble! I could go on rehashing what's already been said, but there are some stellar reviews on this book that I simply can not top. So here's my tip of the hat to the book and my recommendation.
