Unf*ck America: A respectful, open-minded conversation is that rare, multi-partisan, no-bull, sometimes-surprising, unstoppably honest, come-to-Jesus book that rises above the hopped-up codewords, gets beneath bias, and dismantles assumptions. It will knock you out of your political box and personal comfort zone to deliver empirical data, hope, critical thinking, and a field manual for individual action.
Drawing from his wild range of experience and travel, Mike Ritland brings his broadened perspective and pattern-disrupting, four-principle framework to interrogate the country’s border, mental health and social issues, inequality, guns, human trafficking, healthcare, and even parenting in his ruthlessly open-minded quest to save the country he fiercely dissects and loves.
"If you are easily offended or triggered by ideas that don't conform to your own or if your opinions were formed by parroting someone who also did not spend the requisite time, energy, and effort studying an issue before commenting, retweeting, or calling for cancelation or censorship, this might not be your book, even though it is exactly the book you need. With the same no-holds-barred, honest, 'go choke yourself' approach that has made his Mike Drop podcast a favorite of millions, Mike Ritland has penned a book that needs to be on the shelves of every American household. So, as Mike would say, 'check your sensitivities at the door.' Open your mind and enjoy the read!"
-- Jack Carr, former Navy SEAL sniper and number-one New York Times bestselling author of The Devil's Hand
"Mike Ritland always takes me by surprise. Few people are willing to stand naked in front of the world without ego or affect and just say exactly what they think—especially these days—yet here he is taking on every controversial subject of our time with characteristic honesty and no apology. I can't recall better conversations than the ones I've had with him or think of a better book to remind us we're not really so divided after all."
-- Lara Logan, award-winning journalist
"Bold and well researched, Ritland's Unf-ck America doesn't pull any punches when it comes to dismantling partisan thinking. It may well change the way you think about politics."
-- Clint Emerson, New York Times bestselling author and retired Navy SEAL
