From the Cold War to the Clinton years, Chris Matthews gives the straight-up account of what it means to be an American. Matthews tells us about his God and country Catholic school education in Philadelphia, complete with Cold War air-raid drills and his early enthusiasm for politics. He also shares with us his various adventures: two years in Africa with the Peace Corps, the challenge of running for Congress at a mere 28 years old, and lastly his three decades deep in the belly of the beast of American politics.

Matthews has made his name as a razor-sharp journalist determined to expose the politicians who abuse their power. With Now, Let Me Tell You What I Really Think, Matthews rallies those who work hard and play by the rules and proves why he still heralds the wisdom he heard from a capitol policeman over 20 years ago: The little man loves his country, because it's all he's got. A hard-to-categorize maverick with an uncool love for his country, Matthews offers an irreverent look at where we are, and how we got here. Download and start listening now!

    " One of the first books by Chris Matthews but an interesting one. His predictions sometimes didn't exactly come to pass such as, he predicted Al Gore would definitely run again for president and that did not happen! Also he grew up in a Republican family but switched over to a Democrat later in life. "

    " I generally like Matthews. Yes, it's a little left biased (not that there's anything wrong with that), but for the most part he's middle of the road and honestly explains his beliefs in here. "
