Overview

In the twenty-first century, America could be destroyed.

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 sixteen years; real, lasting welfare reform; and four years of balanced budgets. But the challenges now are even starker, and Newt is back with a new plan for American greatness.

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 national bestseller Winning the Future: A 21st Century Contract with America.

    Every good American should read this book!

    I would recommend this book to absolutely any American citizen. Mr. Gingrich portrays an image of the kind of America everyone wants to live in, plus ideas on how to achieve such a country. This work will inspire you to do your part to make America greater!

    A reviewer

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was refreshing to read actual ideas from a man that has the potential to be president, rather than an onslaught of generalizations.

    Newt does it again

    Speaker Gingrich has provided America with a new wake up call with his new book, Winning the Future. His vision regarding education, healthcare, immigration, and Social Security are must-reads for all lawmakers. The centrality of the English language in American society for all American citizens now and in the future is also an important component in the Gingrich view of American continued success and prosperity in the 21st century. I particularly recommend chapter four regarding a rather dynamic series of ideas on bringing the Courts back under the Constitution. Having designed buildings in the District of Columbia I would also not miss appendix B, which takes you on a walking tour of God in the built environment in Washington, DC. The nation¿s architects over the last several hundred years have made sure to include God in the Architecture of our buildings.

    Current events - and then some

    This is a concise, pointed, and descriptive analysis of the election issues likely to dominate the next few national electoral cycles. More impressively, it's written by a man likely to be directly involved at the highest levels in exactly the campaigns to address those issues. While a few have written for publication as they campaigned (Churchill) it took forty years to publish Reagan, and only now is the development of his political philosophy getting broad attention. If for no other reason, this is a must read for simple civic awareness, and knowledge for the informed voter. See also his prior book on health care, and try to find another candidate this far ahead in addressing these issues.

    Great primer for the political operative and novice alike.

    Winning the Future is an excellent primer for the political operative and novice alike. Want a quick read on the top issues outlined in the original Contract with America? Want a better understanding of the most pressing issues facing our nation today? This collection of thoughtful capsules is a great way to join today¿s political debate. I can not recall a single leader that offers so many rich ideas, solutions and proposals on such a range of issues from immigration to social security to environmental science. While national security dominates most of our current public policy, Gingrich tackles many domestic problems- particularly health care- that, as he demonstrates, is equally important to our survival as the world¿s foremost democracy. Love him or hate him, you have to admire his willingness to offer ideas where others do not. Be sure to check out Chapters 5, 6 & which outline the current state of affairs of US immigration and assimilation policies. I enjoyed his gutsy views on ¿patriotic immigration, education and stewardship¿. Always a straight shooter, Gingrich does not disappoint by drawing on the lessons of the Founding Fathers to promote basic principles to guide our role as the beacon of worldwide freedom. There are also a few unique bonuses you will not find elsewhere. The American Traditions and Values self assessment and the ¿Walking Tour of God in Washington, DC¿ are sure to incite controversy. While you are certain not to agree with Gingrich on all subjects, this book is great for anyone seeking to understand the top issues facing the government today. On the heels of the recent [negative] campaign, it is refreshing to see someone so at ease on a breadth of issues. This is an ideal blueprint of ideas for students, conservatives, liberals and anyone else that cares about America. Congrats Newt!

AND WHEAN YOU READ IT REMEMBER AS I DID THAT NEWT CRAFTED THE ORIGINAL CONTRACT WITH AMERICA SO PERHAPS THIS NEW BOOK 'WINNING THE FUTURE' BY NEWT GINGRICH BRINGS A FEW FRESH IDEAS TO THE TABLE AS WELL AS UPDATING THE ORIGINAL SUCCESSFUL CONTRACT WITH AMERICA. THIS IS A VERY INTRESTING AND FRESH APPROACH TO AFASINATING BOOK. IT IS VEERY HARD TO PUT DOWN AND IT WOULD MAKE A REALLY FINE GIFT FOR A FRIEND FAMILY MEMBER AND/OR CO WORKER
