Released in bookstores across the nation January 1: “Paranoid Nation: The Real Story Of The 2008 Fight For The Presidency,” by nationally syndicated columnist and pollster Matt Towery, author of the hit book “Powerchicks: How Women Will Dominate America.”
Conspiracy or coincidence? In a year when the sky seemed to be falling and conventional wisdom almost never proved correct, Towery polled and chronicled the race for the presidency with a unique perspective.
Having already predicted the collapse of the housing and financial markets in his March 2006 Creators Syndicate column, Matt Towery took note of events that most political observers missed in the presidential race.
He chronicled the new, earlier date of the Florida primary and predicted the devastating effect it would have on Hillary Clinton.
Towery was there the night that dark-horse candidate, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, won a critical debate that guaranteed the defeat of most candidates and the emergence of John McCain as the Republican nominee.
From the story of the Kennedy family’s silent but early involvement in the Obama campaign, to the real story behind how Sarah Palin was selected and treated by her own party, “Paranoid Nation” has the real story.
“This is nothing like any political book you will ever read. Towery takes us through a unique personal history that includes having met or known every president since Richard Nixon. He ties together amazing stories of our nation’s political past to help explain what most of us don’t know…how Barack Obama really won the presidency.”
—Advanced Review by Walter Jones, Morris News Service
“ ‘Paranoid Nation,’ with all due respect, blows the doors off of ‘Powerchicks.’ This is a page-turner, whether you are conservative or liberal and whether you care about politics or not…Towery checks his nationally known Republican credentials at the door and uses the same non-partisan approach his polling firm used throughout the 2008 election to turn the untold story of the presidential election into the brightest of literary bows.”
—Tom Houck, founding member, National Association of Talk Show Hosts, author of soon-to-be-released “Driving Dr. King.”
Don’t miss the chance to read this just-released book by Matt Towery. Here’s what just a few people had to say about his last title, “Powerchicks: How Women Will Dominate America,” in which, among many other revelations, Towery predicted ten years before she took office that Rep. Nancy Pelosi would someday be Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives!
“This is the book that explains how women will reach ‘the top of the charts’ in the worlds of media, entertainment, business and politics…a must read for the next generation of leaders…”
