About the Author

With over 35 million albums sold and more media face-time than most active politicians, Ted Nugent has earned his status as an American icon. Renowned for modeling the high-octane civic activism he unabashedly encourages, he is a respected guest of top-rated, high-profile network, cable, news, sports, political commentary, and rock programs on television and radio. Ted Nugent Spirit of the Wild television show continues to be Outdoor Channel’s #1 Hunting Show year after year and Ted and Shemane are fan favorite hosts. A recipient of numerous commendations from law enforcement agencies nationwide, Ted has been lauded for his Ted Nugent Kamp for Kids and Freedom’s Angels, work as a national spokesman for D.A.R.E., and as Ambassador for Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Pass It On-Mentors Program. As America’s top proponent of the Second Amendment, Ted has served on the Board of Directors of the NRA since 1995. Ted Nugent continues to fight for personal freedoms on the lecture circuit. He is an award-winning writer for more than forty publications, and author of the New York Times bestsellers Ted, White, and Blue , God, Guns, & Rock’n’Roll , as well as Kill It & Grill It and Bloodtrails II. Ted Nugent's unbridled musical fury throttles on.

I'm an avid book listener and this is one of the best I've listened to in a long time. Ted reads it himself, which lends to the enjoyment. If you're fed up with liberal spin and enjoy shoot-from-the-hip ideas and truths about our country, where it is and why it is, then this is a must-read.

In his book, Mr. Nugent says what many of us feel but aren't allowed to say due to our nations silly obsession with being PC. He lays out his opinions (which really are just common sense!), and backs them up with intelligent arguments and statistical facts. If you are a liberal, be prepared to feel like a clown!

Although I am somewhat biased being a big Ted Nugent fan, he hits many subjects in the bullseye. I beleive writes alot of what mainstream America is thinking.

Ted, White and Blue presents a common sense approach to understanding what is wrong with America today. Furthermore, the work discusses pragmatic ways in which Americans can significantly participate in helping to heal the economic problems faced by our country today. Yes, there is a difference between wants and needs. The presentation would be helped if Mr. Nugent had toned down the chest-pounding presentation that he slips into at times. However, his ideas actually make sense. Even though he thinks that he is a Republican (though unhappy with the current direction of the party), his ideas sound like a fleshed out version of the Libertarian Party official platform. I think that all members of the U.S. Congress should read this text. Perhaps Mr. Nugent will sent them a copy!

This book should be manditory reading for all politicians, law enforcement, parents, teachers, news paper editors and anit-gun idiots. It spells it out like it should be done. No words are missed and it is down to earth reading. Ted should receive the Nobel Peace Award for writing it. In fact the Nobel award should be taken from Al Gore and given to Ted.
I have read it twice now to make sure I did not miss anything and admired it both times. I'm with Ted. Well written and done !

Applause, applause, how absolutely refreshing to read such common sense and logic. Ted's a man's man, and he speaks the absolute truth. If you're sick to death of the whining in America and crave some tough-as-nails hard honest truth, presented here in the Nuge's always entertaining style, READ THIS BOOK.

If you have not seen/heard Ted on one of his vast media appearances then you have not been paying attention! Ted is everywhere...and I can't get enough of him! Like John Wayne, Ted is truly an American Hero indeed! I loved this book immensely, it's an important book and should be on everybody's reading list. I've gifted it to family and friends, just in time for christmas shopping! This book is bold, entertaining and ultimately Ted's gift to all of us, offering his guiding principles, and this reader salutes Ted Nugent! We're lucky to have him! Thank you Uncle Ted, well done!

Although I loved this book--not only because I'm a big BUGE fan, but because I feel it's important--I gave it three stars only because much of the material Nuge covers here has been handled not only on his blog over the years, but in many other conservative books.As a plus, this is a really good read if you'd like a basic, cut the BS-look at issues that are important to every American (i.e. Ted really breaks things down into layman's terms, albeit with his fun take).While this should be an eye-opener for those who have been blinded by the masses, those into the conservative-look on things WILL enjoy it for Ted's prose, but info-wise, there may not be too much here you haven't already heard.

Ted Nugent may be a rock n roller, but he has good old values that American people are lacking these days. People should be responsible for their actions, work hard, and show respect.....even my son, who is reading this book sees the basic values that is lacking in his generation.

Ted calls for the United States Americans to walk a more responsible path in order to keep this great nation going for generations to come. No matter race or creed, everyone can take at least some of these ideas and apply them to their own lives to become more independant and less dependant on a system that thrives on waste.
