Jesse Ventura—former governor, wrestler, and Navy SEAL—on
what's wrong with the Democrats, the Republicans, and
politics in America.
Jesse Ventura has had many
lives—as a Navy SEAL, as a star of pro wrestling, as an
actor, and as the governor of Minnesota. His previous books,
I Ain't Got Time to Bleed and Do I Stand
Alone?, were both national bestsellers. Don't Start
the Revolution Without Me! is the story of his
controversial gubernatorial years and his life since
deciding not to seek a second term as governor in 2002.
Written with award-winning author Dick Russell at a secluded
location on Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Ventura's new book
reveals for the first time why he left politics—and why he
is now considering reentering the arena with a possible
independent run for the presidency in 2008.
fast-paced and often humorous narrative, Ventura pulls no
punches in discussing our corrupt two-party system, the
disastrous war in Iraq, and what he suspects really happened
on September 11. He provides personal insights into the
Clinton and Bush presidencies, and elaborates on the ways in
which third parties are rendered impotent by the country's
two dominant parties. He reveals the illegal role of the CIA
in states like Minnesota, sensitive and up-to-date
information on the Blackwater security firm, the story of
the American spies who shadowed him on a trade mission to
Cuba, and what Fidel Castro told him about who really
assassinated President John F. Kennedy. This unique
political memoir is a must-read for anyone concerned about
the direction that America will take in 2008. 16 b/w
