Bestselling author Newt Gingrich proposes a bold vision of the future: America is on the cusp of a renaissance, a new birth of technological and scientific innovation that will dramatically transform the prosperity and quality of life of every American. Our biggest enemy? Special interest groups, powerful lobbyists, and government bureaucrats who are determined to squash, control, or prevent these innovationsand permanently change the future of America.
These are the Enemies of the Futurepowerful forces determined to prevent the enormous benefits that American ingenuity will bring.
In his groundbreaking new book Breakout, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich sketches America’s future, brimming with possibilities and prosperity. Despite big government regulation and taxation, despite special interest groups and lobbyists, American entrepreneurs, innovators, engineers, and scientists are still abundantly creative and productive. Gingrich describes the top technologies that promise to change the way we live and prosper, including 3D printing, driverless cars, breakthroughs in genetics and medicine, unprecedented and ever-growing internet connectivity, and the new “app store” model of business development.
Will big government, whacky extremists, and powerful lobbyists stop these innovations? They will trywith punitive taxes, stifling regulation, and hopelessly outdated policies. Will Americans allow it? Newt Gingrich sounds the rallying cry to make sure we defeat the enemies of the future.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Newt Gingrich's Breakout is an important contribution to the future of our country. Breakout is not your typical Left vs. Right book. For instance, if you read a book like Gingrich's To Save America, this is very different. It would actually be interesting to know how few times the words "Republicans" or "Democrats" actually appear in Breakout. Instead, this book is about big ideas and big thinkers, people who are trying to make things happen, and usually succeeding, in spite of government regulators and those who want to keep the old order in place. Newt accurately uses a new label, "prison guards," to identify those keeping us locked down in the old, failed ways: bureaucrats, teachers, regulators, professors, government agencies, and environmentalists, to name but a few. Newt cites many great examples and resources throughout his book, all of which can easily be found for further research so we can all work toward achieving Breakout. Newt's final chapter (chapter 13) and his Conclusion are both brief, but both a really great, important summations of what needs to be done to achieve Breakout. If you do not walk away from this book hopeful and motivated to make real change happen, the problem might just be with you, and you must be happy with the status quo which ultimately is the path to continued failure and mediocre outcomes. As I mentioned before, go in to this book with an open mind. Breakout isn't just for Republicans or just for Democrats: it's for us. All of us. Breakout awaits, and this enjoyable, readable roadmap toward Breakout is a quick and easy read and will certainly open your mind to clearer thinking about what can happen if we all demand it and work toward it.
Great Book worth buying.
Highly recommed it
Gingrich was a lying scum of a human being who screwed everyone including his wife who he left while she was dying of cancer. He is not worth it nor are his books
