Overview

In his bestselling It's Getting Ugly Out There, CNN’s Jack Cafferty skewered the liars and losers who were trying to harm the nation and explained why Americans had to take their country back. While the Bush exit from the White House brings a certain sense of "mission accomplished," for Cafferty that's only the beginning.

In Now or Never, the curmudgeonly Cafferty applies his heat-seeking scrutiny to the hot-button issues that top the 2009 agenda, including the economy, China, Iraq, the war on terror, and our broken immigration, education, and healthcare systems. Will Obama turn things around or will it be business as usual? Will a hitherto spineless Democratic Congress hold individuals accountable for abuses of power? Cafferty gives voice to the fears and hopes of Americans from all around the country; he also gets personal with moving stories of his experiences raising kids with values that seem to be disappearing in our culture.

Powerful, provocative, and drawing on the latest news from America and around the world, Now or Never makes lively reading for Cafferty fans and everyone who cares about America today.

Editorial Reviews

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.
