God, Guns & Rock N Rollby Ted Nugent
Synopses & Reviews
"Your life starts at Point A and eds at Point B. Kick maximus ass!"
Get ready to rock, doc. You've just entered the world of Ted Nugent, where freedom reigns, thanks to our God-given right to self-defense and the Second amendment, heroes rule — it's "we the people" NOT "we the sheeple" — and dinner comes care of "pistolero steakage."
You thought the day of the patriot had gone. Guess again. The minuteman has come back to life as the raging Motor City Madman. Here's a hard-rockin', hard-workin' star, whose life is devoted to knocking down violent crime, knocking down drugs, and knocking down restrictions on American freedom — personally.
AS TED SAYS: you either believe in the Constitution and the Ten Commandments or YOU'VE GOT A PROBLEM — with him. And vengenance is his, sayeth the guitarboy.
Ted celebrates the Spirit of the Wild "beyond the pavement" — from which all good things come. Here's nature as rock 'n' roll rehab, a return to the spirit, a dose of reality that doesn't come plastic-wrapped and styrofoamed.
Ted takes you machine-gunning with Aerosmith and backstage, where he's busting drug dealers. He shows you how many rock stars took drugs and are dead, while he went hunting — and he's still Ted.
And then there's kids — and Ted's patented, but freely shared, dramatic advocacy for kids to stay clean, stay cool, stay disciplined. Here's how to learn the "ballistics of spirituality," the duty of the hunter, the lesson that God is always watching. Here's bowhunting, rifle, shotgun, and handgun marksmanship as an exercise in self-control. Here's how to walk tall with your compass always pointed True North.
Ted shows the way.
"Ted Nugent is, beyond argument, one of the good guys. In addition to his continuing career in broadcasting, and his mastery of the guitar, he's a frequent guest on one or another of the major TV shows. It can be said, though, that his work for outdoor sports is his deepest concern. All thos who share his commitment will enjoy his book." Charleton Heston
"What can I say about Ted that he hasn't already said himself? Ted is a true original. Whether you love him or hate him, agree or disagree with his philosophies, side with or oppose his politics, you always know where you stand with good old Uncle Ted. He means what he says and he says what he means." Joe Perry, Aerosmith
"I have known Ted for years, and I can't say I always agree with him. I can't even say I often agree with him. But I respect him for this reason: in a world where fame makes people fat and satisfied, Ted continues to fight for his beliefs. He loves nature. And — as this book proves, page after page — he feels that living without passion is not really living. That, I agreewith him on — wholeheartedly." Mitch Albom, author of Tuesdays with Morrie
"As I read God, Guns, & Rock 'n' Roll, I could hear the fall leaves crunch under Ted's boots and wince at his many falls into the Michigan mud. His candor and uninhibited nature allow Ted to convey, as few authors can, the value of learning about, hunting in, and preserving this great land of ours and all its bounty. President Reagan spoke eloquently of an 'American Sound' that was big-hearted, hopeful, decent, fair, and patriotic. The challenge to keep the American Sound alive for a new generation has fallen to Ted Nugent, and he has not let us down. We hear it in the pages of God, Guns, & rock 'n' Roll." Congressman Bob Barr of Georgie
"Don't let the ponytail fool you! Ted Nugent writes and speaks with passion based not on opinion, but on research and personal experience. I am fortunate to know Ted, he is for the good in all of us. Read, learn, and join the cause!" Kirk Gibson, former major league baseball player, world series hero
Rock and roll legend Ted Nugent contends that a lot of what is wrong with this country could be remedied by a simple, but controversial concept: gun ownership.
