The #1 New York Times bestseller from FOX News star of Tucker Carlson Tonight offers “a targeted snipe at the Democrats and Republicans and their elite enablers” (New York Journal of Books) in a funny political commentary on how America’s ruling class has failed everyday Americans.

“Informal and often entertainingly told narrative of elite malfeasance” (Publishers Weekly), Tucker Carlson’s Ship of Fools tells the truth about the new American elites, a group whose power and wealth has grown beyond imagination even as the rest of the country has withered. The people who run America now barely interact with it. They fly on their own planes, ski on their own mountains, watch sporting events far from the stands in sky boxes. They have total contempt for you.

In Ship of Fools, Tucker Carlson offers a blistering critique of our new overlords and answers the all-important question: How do we put the country back on course? Traditional liberals are gone, he writes. The patchouli-scented hand-wringers who worried about whales and defended free speech have been replaced by globalists who hide their hard-edged economic agenda behind the smokescreen of identity politics. They’ll outsource your job while lecturing you about transgender bathrooms. Left and right, Carlson says, are no longer meaningful categories in America. “The rift is between those who benefit from the status quo, and those who don’t.”

Our leaders are fools, Carlson concludes, “unaware that they are captains of a sinking ship.” But in the signature and witty style that viewers of Tucker Carlson Tonight enjoy so much, Ship of Fools is “bulging with big and interesting ideas, presented succinctly with wit and precision, each chapter a potential book in itself” (The Washington Times).

AN honest and open review of what I perceive as what is wrong in the world today with Liberals. Tucker reinforces, with actual verifiable acts by Liberals, how they preach on how to save the world by changing how YOU, NOT THEM, need to change the way you live. Paris accords meetings held next to a private airport to save travel time to meetings. From their private jets. DiCaprio the fake Climate Change person flies around the world daily in a private jet to get everyone else to change their carbon footprint, so his can be negated. Overall great book worth the $ & time to read.

Tucker writes with humor and yet uncovers the serious hypocrisy that abounds and is destroying our nation. He provides well documented research to back up and verify his claims. You could say he is a 'common sense' author who views the world we live in from a broad perspective. The book cries out - "Wake Up America"!

One of the best observations of our time on what is actually happening in America. Carlson has demonstrated that he is one of the most intelligent people in media today! Thank you Tucker.

I have read all of the latest conservative books about the drain we appear to be going down with none of the Elites demonstrating any designed lifevest that might work to save us minions from drowning or being flushed into obscurity. Truckers is the best I have read about the idiots on board who are taking us to places we don't want to go and these Elites don't have or know how to read a nautical map. The issue I am having with these books is we are getting overloaded with the crap in the swamp but no real guidance how to organize ourselves with a plan. With November looming we need our leaders leading with a plan. Just giving speeches and writing books is informative and enlightening but not a process to move forward. We need a call to action with a plan

I was soon inspired to hilight passages, then bookmark pages. Near the middle of the book, I realized there was less content unmarked than what I had notated. Tucker has put much into order for me and there is power in understanding.

A great read that sensibly explains the turmoil correctly affecting our country.

Tucker's book is easy to read, easy to comprehend, and easy to digest...all the while seeding the mind with well researched and informative tidbits that enable the reader to quickly get to the root of the various topics, self-delberate the presented conclusions, and reach an internal opinion from a well informed vantage point. I loved it!

Love Tucker! He ALWAYS gives an excellent perspective on what is going on in America and the liberals who are desperate to destroy our country at any cost. This is a must read!

Tucker as usual is on the money. He makes you think and at the same time makes you mad as hell because we are living with these corrupt politicians
