Chris Matthews has been playing "Hardball" since the day he was born. As host of Hardball and the best-selling author of such classics as Hardball and Kennedy & Nixon, Matthews is a political cop who insists on the truth and nothing but. In Now Let Me Tell You What I Really Think, Chris Matthews is at his brilliant, blunt, bulldogged best. From the Cold War to the Clinton on Years, Matthews 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 arly enthusiasm for politics. He also shares with us his various adventures: ears 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 Think, Matthews rallies those who "work hard and play by the rules" and why he still heralds the wisdom he learned from a capitol policeman over twenty 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 gives irreverent look at where we are, and how we got here.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Those interested in Matthews’s views will enjoy his appealing writing style.”  New York Daily News
“A collection of reflections, aphorisms, and reminiscences for political junkies curious about the thinking, and the life, behind the drive-by quips that Matthews regularly delivers on his cable talk show Hardball.”  Washington Post
“Matthews comes off as far more than the typical blustery political talking head in these pages. Indeed, he bares his soul on more than a few pages, and he does a great job at explaining how he’s reached his current status as an independent thinker.”  Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Those interested in Matthews’s views will enjoy his appealing writing style.”  Library Journal
