The first few chapters were such a "dog breakfast" of a mishmash of ideas that I was seriously considering not wasting my time completing the book. But then it became clear to me why it was that Mr. Gingrich was so "tongue-tied" and incoherent in the early going: He was using all of his literary skills and powers to avoid having to criticize the failed leadership of his own party under GHW Bush, aka, "Junior." Somehow he did manage to finesse his way through the dismal Bush record, but it was not a pretty sight to see. Even Katrina was seen as just an unfortunate mishap.
Newt only began to hit his stride after this unceremonious and failed attempt to "cover" for his political cell mate: GHW Bush. The summary of the first 50 pages is basically: that the GOP knows how to get elected but does not know how to govern. (Now, where did we last hear this criticism? Oh, yes! With the current President, Mr. Barack Obama (BHO)) Therefore, surely Newt meant, just beneath his breath, that both parties "outsourced" the task of government to lobbyists, political hacks and campaign managers -- like to Karl Rove and David Axlerod.Read more ›
The absolute irony here is that since he has been demonized by the Left, he is considered a right-wind radical. The ones who would never vote for him (if he ever ran) - poor, minorities - have the most to gain from him. He is their biggest defender and supporter. His call to do away with unionized, failed bureaucracies is what America needs, particularly the poor and the down trodden. These failed instiutions whom he fights against are the very institutions keeping the poor inprisoned.
I challenge everyone to read this book, to take the call of action from Newt to reform and transform our America into one that is successful, into one that does not tolerate mediocrity and failure. Whom do we serve, what do we value, and how do we measure achievement? - are the questions that every persons needs to be analyzing for their own answers.
Newt is reasonable and fair. He doesn't discriminate between political parties - if they support broken bureaucracies and government policies, then he calls you out. I challenge anyone to argue the principles laid out in this book. They cannot be challenged because the principles talked about here are true.
Wake up everyone and read this book!! Buy them as gifts and give them as Christmas presents. For if we reform and take up this challenge the real gift will be given to us and more particularly to our children and their children.
This book is worthy of more than 5 stars. Do yourself a favor and read it.

Newt is a con-artist plain and simple. The only change he is interested in is making money and inflating his self-importance. Read morePublished on January 3, 2012 by WatchFan
