Millions of TV viewers have known Lou Dobbs for years as the Walter Cronkite of economics coverage, and now the anchor has become the preeminent champion of the common man and the good of the national interest, who tells uncomfortable truths in a voice that can't be ignored. In this incendiary book, he presents a frontline report on the betrayal of America's middle class by interests that range from rapacious corporations to an out-of-touch political elite. The result is not only lost jobs but also dysfunctional schools and unaffordable health care. But War on the Middle Class also outlines a bold program for change. As essential as it is infuriating, this book furnishes the talking points for the national debate on income and class.

    " I am not going to lie, I am a big fan of Mr. Dobbs and just about anyone who fights for the middle class for that matter. Once again, I do not need to write a review this book because the title says it all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason Read | 1/28/2014

    " I enjoyed really enjoyed this book. Since reading it I've really become more cynical and questioning about our government "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith | 1/26/2014

    " I had to read this book for a class and ended up enjoying it more than I thought. It was not dry at all, the author presented the information in an enjoyable way. The informaton included int he book was interesting also, I liekd how the author expressed his opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 1/13/2014

    " Some thought provoking material and worth the time even though a little dated. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael Kozinski | 1/13/2014

    " I have two words describing the next president of the United States: Lou Dobbs. I definitely recommend this book! Why? Lou Dobbs points a clear finger to the problems the United States is facing. Outsourcing, lobbying, "free" trade deals, corruption, etc. This book kept me turning pages, because I knew that I couldn't miss out on any of this information. I loved this book! And Dobbs gives a pretty clear message: We need to oust the two main parties from office. That was one of the most developed messages I've ever read. He completely changed my stance on Free Trade from "We need it!" to "Protectionism is the way!". Personally, I think the nest generation, which is going to inherit one big mess, should use this book as a guide to lead the country. You will be fuming mad at those waging war on the middle class, when you are done reading this! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 None | 12/7/2013

    " A must read for anyone making less than $150,000 a year and more than $26,000... which is about 85% of americans! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 12/2/2013

    " interesting in that he looks at the failure of both dems and republicans,however the book is short on real practical solutions. Unfortunately, i don't thing that there are any real practical solutions. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave/Maggie Bean | 11/13/2013

    " Dobbs is rather "moderate" for my tastes, and somewhat inconsistent. Moreover, he's in incurable optimist. Having said that, I'll add that prefers observable reality to theory and ideology. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika | 10/23/2013

    " Just started reading this book. So far it's a little alarmist, but I do agree that we have become a consumerist society, paying CEO's and basketball players entirely too much. We'll see if he comes up with any real solutions. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 10/21/2013

    " Great read on how lobbyists and big business are squeezing us dry. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danny | 7/2/2013

    " Really people, don't read unles your BP is totaly in check, or if you are a GOP'er. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristin | 5/24/2012

    " This book had a lot of information in it, albeit perhaps partially escued to Lou's thinking. Still very interesting yet a touch on the boring side. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric | 4/11/2012

    " This is a book that in my opinion every American citizen should read. It was written in2006 so there are a couple of things that are dated, and of course I didn't agree with everything that Lou Dobbs said, but I still think this is a very important book for all Americans to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachwest1280 | 11/26/2011

    " "War on the Middle Class" by Lou Dobbs was a very insightful book. It opens your eyes about what is happening in our country as far as Corporations having control instead of our government, Middle class being taken advantage of and so many more issues we face in America. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Josh | 5/13/2011

    " Fabulous. This book can really help people understand the crisis that faces the American Economy right now. It will open eyes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leticia | 9/3/2010

    " It is provocative and controversial. The author is informative his writing raises many questions. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bill Hughes | 7/19/2010

    " Recurring theme gets old. We get it already, Lou wants to seal the borders and lower taxes. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jorge | 11/30/2009

    " Interesting picture about all problems facing by US middle class. I don't reach the "How to Fight Back" part yet. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 10/29/2008

    " If you want to get angry then read this book. A good book that takes on democrats and republicans for their lack of concern for the people of the United States. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jake | 11/21/2007

    " Audio Book. Interesting to hear a liberal journalist say the same thing a conservative (Bill O'Reilly) said. That both parties are screwing up America. I can't say I disagreed but, I think both sensationalize things to get viewers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Don | 11/29/2006

    " can't read this without seeing him rant on tv in your head but has many good points. "
