Publisher's Summary

Jesse Ventura has had many lives—as a Navy SEAL, as a star of pro wrestling, as an actor, and as the governor of Minnesota. Written with award-winning author Dick Russell at a secluded location on Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Ventura's best-selling book reveals for the first time why he left politics—and why he is now considering reentering the arena with a possible independent run for the presidency.


Audible Editor Reviews

Brash, outspoken, and fiercely independent, Jesse Ventura has never shied away from the spotlight. Though he can be a divisive figure, it's hard not to appreciate his passion and conviction in his beliefs, which are on full display with Don't Start the Revolution Without Me!
Ventura's political memoir is heavily critical of the establishment - particularly the two-party system - and he pulls no punches in laying out his vision for America's future.
Chris O'Brien expertly captures Ventura's zeal with his and dynamic and enthusiastic delivery, so even those who disagree with the politics espoused will find it to be an entertaining, thought-provoking listen.

If you could sum up Don't Start the Revolution Without Me in three words, what would they be?

Eye-opening, finally, revolutionary

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The most compelling aspect of this narrative is that it appears Americans are being lied to on a huge scale for the purpose of power control and capitalism.

Which scene was your favorite?

There isn't any one moment that stands out, but the two-party's obvious subversion and counter-tactics to Ventura's no-nonsense approach to solving US issues and foreign policy raises an eyebrow. It would appear that a single governor in quiet Minnesota was enough of a threat to the left and right that they worked diligently to discredit him any chance they got. As a result, you begin wondering if a third/independent party candidate could do a better job.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
