Are you fed up with bickering politicians, self-satisfied bureaucrats, and a government that never seems to address the real problems facing our country? Can we create a government that is small, efficient, and responsive—from the state house to the White House? Is that kind of real change even possible? Newt Gingrich, architect of the contract with America, says it is time for citizens to demand results from our elected officials. In this revealing and exciting new book, he shows how America can achieve transformational change—from a government of bureaucratic failure to a government that can meet the challenges of the twenty-first century. 

As a first step, Gingrich busts the pernicious myth that America is divided between conservative red states and liberal blue states. As Gingrich points out, the American people are united on almost every important issue facing our country—including immigration, taxes, defending America, and freedom of religion. The real division is between red-white-and-blue America and a fringe on the Left. Red-white-and-blue America believes overwhelmingly—by majorities of 70 percent or more—that we need a change in course. But our politicians aren’t listening. Gingrich reveals why the Democratic Party can’t deliver real change and why the Republican Party won’t. He provides answers and a step-by-step, issue-by-issue toolkit for building a better America—the safe, innovative, and dynamic America we all want.

    " A positive tone on business-friendly approaches to government reform. If I trusted business to run my life I might be swayed. "

    " Read the book loved it. Even though he's dead on, he's still a Historian. The only problem with Newt is his mouth gets him in trouble. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 12/25/2013

    " This book is a must read for those intersted in politics. Written prior to the election, it takes a look into why both political parties are failing the American public. It makes you think!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris | 12/5/2013

    " I was bored to tears when I read this book. There's no doubt Gingrich is a smart man, but that doesn't necessarily translate into being a compelling author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 12/5/2013

    " Newt has a tremendously innovative mind, however I believe he contributes the most on the sidelines generating ideas. I'm afraid he believes in big government managed effectively, an oxymoron. "

    " nothing new or intriguing... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jared Bangerter | 3/5/2013

    " Absolutely phenomenal book. Anyone who has drank the Obama cool-aid and was tricked into thinking he brings "change" needs to read this book, Newt (one of the great ones) discuss what real change would be and how average Americans can effect this change. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Keenan | 2/27/2013

    " Great book, and explains the patently obvious Bush Adm failure over the last few years, and that the tactic of the conservatives must be a call to what is right and not try to moderate the message. Currently reading. Good politico read. "

    " I found I agreed with 80% of his recommendations for changing America. I figure the chances of his program being adopted are about equal to his chances of being elected president. In other words, ain't going to happen. Too bad. It might save the country from ruin, "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert Irvin | 1/27/2012

    " Another airport book for the political season. I don't always agree with his prescription (tax incentives for everything?), but his common sense look at some of our political system's failings, especially education and NASA, are eye opening and should make us wonder about campaign promises. "
