From the Cold War to the Clinton years, Chris Matthews gives the straight-up account of what it means to be an American. Matthews tells us about his "God and country" Catholic school education in Philadelphia, complete with Cold War air-raid drills and his early enthusiasm for politics. He also shares with us his various adventures: two years in Africa with the Peace Corps, the challenge of running for Congress at a mere 28 years old, and lastly his three decades deep in the "belly of the beast" of American politics.Matthews has made his name as a razor-sharp journalist determined to expose the politicians who abuse their power. With Now, Let Me Tell You What I Really Think, Matthews rallies those who "work hard and play by the rules" and proves why he still heralds the wisdom he heard from a capitol policeman over 20 years ago: "The little man loves his country, because it's all he's got." A hard-to-categorize maverick with an uncool love for his country, Matthews offers an irreverent look at where we are, and how we got here.More
