Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
During recent years, CNN commentator Jack Cafferty has gotten himself in network trouble more than once over his scathing critiques of the Bush administration, the Democratic-controlled Congress, and numerous foreign leaders. That unapologetic candor has also won him a large audience eager to learn his views on news of the breaking day. In Now or Never, he excoriates the incompetents and liars who he believes are hurting our country and defiling the American Dream.
Publishers Weekly
In the irascible style of his on-air CNN soap box The Cafferty Files, veteran political reporter and talking head Cafferty (It's Getting Ugly Out There) delivers an uncompromising account of George W. Bush's presidency and the current state of affairs in the U.S., focusing on the invasion of Iraq and the insider deals between the Bush/Cheney administration and corporations like Exxon and Enron. Also scrutinized is Bush's lackadaisical attitude toward the growing threat of inner Afghanistan turmoil, the brittle relationship between the U.S. and China, and new class warfare in a cratering economy. Perhaps more importantly, Cafferty recaps the 2008 presidential election, addressing the strategies that lost McCain-Palin the presidency and the cascade of problems Obama has inherited. The stolid Cafferty even takes an occasional step back from politics to offer glimpses of his family and his own climb to success, a personal touch that should surprise Caffety's fans almost as much as his sincere belief in a coming turn for the better.

    Now or Never is a great read

    Even if you don't watch CNN or know who Jack Cafferty is, you have to read this book. It's too funny and biting to miss. I read an excerpt online and just had to pick up the book and I'm glad I did! I think I'll have to check out some of Jack's past blog postings. If they are anything like this book, I'm sure I'll be laughing one minute and outraged the next! Keep it up, Jack!

    Mom loves it!

    Mom views this as the sequel to his first book, "It's Getting Ugly Out There". There two books get into Jack's life, and the mess that is truly Washington. Anyone who is fed up with Washington should really get there two books.

    THIS BOOK WAS UGLY

    Too much talk about Jack's personal life. That was a boring, since he touched on it in his first book.

    Overall not much new material and didn't help with any insights on how the American people can wrestle control back from the creeps that are in Washington now.

    I will pass on his next book unless he steps it up.

    Jack Cafferty

    This was a great book along with his other book. Jack writes whats on his mind and doesn't care what anyone thinks about it. I can hardly wait for his next book. I also enjoy him daily on CNN.

    Keep up the good work, Jack.

    A Must Read!

    I don't normally get to see Jack on CNN during the day, but I catch his blog and after reading this book, I have a new appreciation for him. He writes very candidly about his past and how he dealt with alcoholism, divorce and the shocking loss of his wife. After reading the book, you realize why he points fingers the way he does with such frequency because he's been there. He knows what it is like when people aren't held accountable for their actions or when our political leaders don't act in our best interests.

    Timely read

    I was a fan of It's Getting Ugly Out There, and since I work for the publisher I was able to mooch a copy for myself. I expected it to be a direct and in-your-face rant about our current situation like the last book, and it certainly is. But it also offers some helpful analysis of what Cafferty thinks we should be doing to fix the myriad of problems facing our country right now. Interesting read for anyone concerned about where we're headed and whether or not the new government is putting us on the right track.

    Now or Never is right!

    I work for the publisher and got my hands on an early copy. As you might guess from seeing him on CNN, Cafferty is bipartisan in his outrage and his determination to make America strong again. He pulls no punches in criticizing the screwups of a Democratic-controlled Congress, so disappointing to those of us hoping for a new dawn in the Obama administration. He's certainly got plenty to say about how the previous administration got us into this mess, at home and abroad, as well - and about how we must all clean it up - not just leave it to the politicians.

    Cafferty says it's "now or never" in fixing this country and I say, amen.
