The dangers are manifold: Terrorism. Judges who think they're God (and who are anti-God). Rising economic challenges from China and India. Immigrants and young Americans who know little about American history and values. Can America survive? Yes, says Newt Gingrich, and we as Americans can do more: We can create a safer, more prosperous, and healthier America for our children and grandchildren. How? By enacting a 21st Century Contract with America.

When he was Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich issued his first Contract with America. What was the result? Sweeping reform that shocked Washington and spurred an economic recovery for the nation, including: the first major tax cut in 16 years; real, lasting welfare reform; and four years of balanced budgets. But the challenges now are even starker, and Newt is back with a plan for American greatness that includes:

  • How to win the War on Terror; how Ronald Reagan's winning strategy in the Cold War can be adapted and modified to win this new global struggle.
  • How to re-establish God in American public life; without God, America ceases to be American, which is why leftists are so keen on banishing our Creator.
  • How to reform Social Security, and improve your retirement earnings, before Social Security bankrupts the nation and the next generation of taxpayers.
  • How to restore patriotism to American schools and insist on patriotic learning for new immigrants.
  • How to make American health care the global standard for excellence and accessibility while reducing health care costs.

    And much more. The challenges of the 21st Century are great, says Newt Gingrich, but so are the opportunities. The decisions we make over the next four years will determine our future. And no book can be more important for making the right choices than Newt Gingrich's Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract with America. Download and start listening now!

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Runningfox | 6/11/2013

      " This book should be read by any conservative,,,It is in my opinion they way things should be but are not at this ntime...I would hope the president of the USA would read this book and take its words to heart and implement them into his way of thinking and lead by doing those things... "

    • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 5/24/2013

      " I thought that this book was interesting. And I found that most of his ideas and policies I can get behind. But more often than nt, I feel like he falls short in his action to carry out these plans or often comprimises when it actually comes to vote time. "

    • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 4/13/2013

      " Newt is a very bright guy. While this book is a bit out of date, his ideas are brilliant. The country has taken a step in the wrong direction and partly due to the failure of so called conservatives to deliver with integrity. They did not. Newt calls for action! I liked it a lot! "
