"Nader is at his polemical best inveighing against specific issues from the skyrocketing costs of college education to the Keystone XL pipeline to new traffic safety concerns that harken back to his pivotal game-changing 1965 book, Unsafe at Any Speed. Admirers of Nader will find much to savor here as will anyone seeking to understand the mind of a man who singlehandedly sparked a new era of citizen-driven political and consumer activism."
About the Author
RALPH NADER is America’s leading consumer’s and citizen’s advocate, a lawyer and an author who has co-founded numerous public interest groups including Public Citizen, the Center for Auto Safety, Clean Water Action Project, the Disability Rights Center, the Pension Rights Center, Commercial Alert, the Public Interest Research Group (PIRG), and the Center for Study of Responsive Law. For the past forty-five years Ralph Nader has challenged abuses by corporate and government officials and urged citizens to use their time, energy and democratic rights to demand greater institutional accountability. In 1965, Nader's landmark book Unsafe at Any Speed changed the face of the automobile industry. The Atlantic Magazine named Nader as one of the hundred most influential figures in American history, and Time and Life magazines honored him as one of the most influential Americans of the twentieth century. As a result of his efforts, cars are safer, food is healthier and our environment is less polluted and our democracy is more robust.

What does one do with such a book? It clearly is not a cover to cover project and buffs up against the old saw nothing is as old as yesterday's news - fish wrap.
But this is Nader, three times a third party presidential candidate. Collecting sufficient votes that some may still hold him responsible for the election of G. W. Bush in 2000 -- incorrectly others would argue, the point being that in a European style multi-party system he would have been a major force with his following.
It is this history of continuing being on the cutting edge of social criticism that makes the work readable and enduring. No one can hold decades of political intrigue in memory but by referencing Ralph Nader's commentary on a time and an issue you will source a carefully documented argument made at that time that will make the issue alive again.
A book you may well return to again and again to capture some of the heat of the moment, often with a dash of humor - no fish wrap here.
