The former governor, wrestler, and Navy SEAL presents an assessment of what he believes to be America's political shortcomings, in a whimsical account that chronicles his controversial gubernatorial years, his morally charged visit to Cuba, and his consideration for an independent run for president.

I would highly reccommend every word he writes and every word he says if you want to know the truth about what is going on the US, refer to Jesse, one of the few who actually tell the truth. Dhiagelev
I have no doubt that Jesse Ventura is an "oddball" but I found myself caught between laughing out loud at his turn of phrase and independence from "the system", and sadly acknowledging that politics in the West is the same as politics everywhere... full of corrupt, self-serving and thoroughly unpleasant people within a system that they believe must be kept going at all costs.
Switching from a largely autobiographical structure to one of (a frighteningly realistic!) fiction in the final couple of chapters, it is a "must read" for anyone who thinks one man (Jesse Ventura, Barack Obama or anyone else)can really make any difference.
Jesse and his wife, Terry, having left public office, go on a road trip to Baja California (Mexico) and as they drive through the various cities and states on the way there, Jesse and Terry converse about memorable moments from his careers.
The book is well written (though I have noticed quite a few typos) with these quite diverse stories being tied together wonderfully.
I can highly recommend this book!
