this is a moronic piece of crap. we all chipped in & bought one copy and passed it around the office. well, that's fifty cents i'll never see again.

This book cut thru the pure media BS to tell you who the real Joe is. In fact he is more complex and even put John Mclaim on the spot, not that the MEDIA would tell you. The Obozo campaign invaded his neighborhood and Joe asked a question the media should have but never did. His life was turned upside down by the media frenzy and by the ILLEGAL and DISCRACEFUL search and exposure of his private life. But he is a strong man and this made him stronger still. It also illustrates the petty nature of today "tolerant" liberal and Obozo's lack of a serious effort to stop the invasion of his privacy, shows how petty HE is as well.

A book by a nonwrtier, a non-licensed plumber, what a waste, does not deserve a star.

This book was a waste of time. The plumber's story is flat and boring until he meets his gay lover near the end. Forcing his lover to wear a McCain mask while performing homosexual sex acts was a little over the top, but for the most part it was a sleeper. Maybe the Lifetime made for TV movie will be better. The plumber is going on Sean Hannity tonight maybe Sean will have Joe wear the McCain mask this time.

This book is a good read. I relate to many of his experiences. Joe not only talks about his experience with the election but his past. I found I could relate to much of it.
This book is for anyone who wants to know how a sudden burst into celebrity can help but also hurt the people closest to you. This book details how a small turn of events in a simple day can change your life forever.
I recommend this book highly.

I am so tired of these liberal terrorists who want to take my money and give it to black people. And that is why I am glad that there are people like Joe. Real Americans who don't need education at fancy schools, who don't need a license to perform their trade, who don't even need to be named Joseph to call themselves Joe. America has been taken over by socialists, and it is time to take America back. It would be a very different place if Joe were in charge. A real country with real people who don't hate America and instead just hate liberals. No one would ever need credentials. The only thing that would matter is how much you hate liberals. You could pontificate about Israel without knowing anything about the middle east, or history or politics, or all the lies that those liberal academics tell you in school, so that you can just be a patsy and blindly swallow all the nonsense that the liberal media feeds you. If you can read beyond a second grade level, you can probably handle this book, and you should. Because you will learn what being a real American is all about.

I had a hard time putting the book down. The book echos the every day struggle that we, as American Citizens, deal with each and every day of our lives. Joe is a very down to earth person with strong moral values, one that "every day Americans" can relate to and identify with. Having said that, I can see why the liberal main-stream media and liberal government officals find him to be such a threat: Joe speaks the truth and people listen. They do not want the people of our nation to know the truth! I highly recommend this book for everyone, especially our youth, for they are the ones that are going to deal with our "mess" for decades to come.

This book really struck a chord for me. It is the story of so many people I know, yet it differs in some respects. Joe the Plumber had a childhood best described as filled with hardship. His father deserted his family when Joe was just a little boy. His mother worked hard to support him and his brother and things were very tough until his mother remarried when Joe was nine and at last he found a father who loved him.

Joe overcame the many obstacles in his life and grew up to inspire millions of Americans to stand up for what's right for themselves and their country. It's an inspiring true story that is never dull.

I highly recommend this book , not only for enjoyment but to inform people about what it means to capture the American dream by doing the right thing. This book belongs in every classroom in America.
