Overview

I Ain't Got Time to Bleed: Reworking the Body Politic from the Bottom Up by Jesse Ventura

When he left the navy SEALs to become a pro wrestler, the fans knew him as "Jesse, the Body."

When he hosted his hard-hitting KFAN radio talk show, he became "Jesse, the Mouth."

And now that this body-slamming, straight-talking, charismatic hero is masterminding Minnesota's gubernatorial decisions, you'd better start calling him "Jesse, the Mind."

In I Ain't Got Time to Bleed, Jesse Ventura reveals the secret of his landslide electoral success—with record voter turnout—and maps his innovative strategies for pioneering a new era in American government. In his own inimitable words, he takes on bloated government, career politicians, and apathetic voters, and tells the wildly colorful story of his days as a navy SEAL, his nights in the pro-wrestling ring, and his experiences on radio and in films like Predator and Batman and Robin .

I Ain't Got Time to Bleed is Rocky meets Mr. Smith Goes to Washington—a book that will challenge readers' ideas of traditional government as it introduces them to one of American politics' most ferocious new heroes.

Acres of amazing land can be found close to the barn, the occasional apple tree or pond can be found. Beautiful flocks of geese and ducks can be found acround the even more beautiful natural ponds. Creeks weave themselves in and out of the fenced in property, sometimes a deer jumps the fence. For the tamed horses.

I enjoyed this book for the most part and some of his political ideas. However I did feel like I was with him when he was describing his trials through being a Navy SEAL, a pro-wrestler, an actor, so on and so forth. I would like to see Minnesota have the educational improvements in its system that Mr. Ventura had suggested. Mr. Ventura seems very blunt, honest, and opinionated and is what Minnesota needed at the time he was elected. Mr. Ventura would do a good job if he did decide to run and if he was elected into the White House. He doesn¿t let special interest groups or businesses own him. I would recommend this book to people who think that little people can make a big difference if they put their mind to what they want to accomplish.

I had to read this book for a college course I took on elections and campaigns. I have never been so interested in a book in my life. This book was entertaining, inspirational and just absolutely wonderful. I do hope Mr. Ventura runs for President some day. I strongly believe he is exactly what we need in the White House

I used to think Jesse Ventura was obnoxious and had a big mouth. But after reading his biography, I found it a heart-warming story about a guy who had set many goals for himself and how he obtained them all. I'm a big wrestling fan (my days go back to watching Johnny Valentine, Dick The Bruiser, Pat O'Connor and Lou Thesz). I didn't realize about all the politics that went into the wrestling world. After reading this book, I felt I grew up with Mr Ventura and his family. He has come a long way in his life and he worked hard to get where he is today. I have a lot more respect for him now after reading this book, and I hope he carries his political career one step further - all the way to the President of the United States. He would definitely have my vote.

Ventura's book is a surprisingly solid political statement as well as a nice little autobiography. I must admit that although I wasn't a particularly big fan of his in the beginning, the more I read about him the more I like him. Granted, he does occasionally go overboard, but even his most vocal detractors can't deny the fact he's honest with himself and consistent. Hopefully he's a harbinger in that respect, feather boa notwithstanding. The writing style does have a tendency to be a bit repetitive, but that's a minor issue and the fault of Ventura's editors more than anything else. Overall, this is a quick read and worth your while if you're interested in the current state of American poltiics.

I have never been the type of person to pick up a book and read it for a leisure activity. Hell, I have enough reading to do from my school studies. But once I picked up this book I could not put it down until I had read every word in it! If only Sports Medicine books were this interesting!

I will simply say that I loved it and have read it a second time... Im a member of the reform party and I truly hope Jessie runs for pres some day, we need someone like him involved to get ahold of the goverment once again instead of it holdin us by our throats and our wallets
