DO I STAND ALONE

by | Read by Jesse Ventura

Contemporary Culture • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 2000

Jesse Ventura, the professional wrestler turned governor of Minnesota, has made a career out of being outrageous. Yet this public persona masks a deep and well-thought-out political philosophy. This book could have been titled "A Populist Manifesto," but it probably wouldn't have sold as well. Ventura does the reading himself, and his gravelly wrestler's voice combined with his Minnesota accent makes for fun listening. He makes his points clearly, and the abridgment cheats the reader neither in entertainment (he's a solid raconteur) nor in political philosophy. Among his favorite targets are intrusive reporters and gutless politicians. He pleads for people to become involved in the electoral process and to take back the system.
