"In Unstoppable, Ralph Nader argues that there are in fact surprising areas of convergence between the left and the right... These are profound observations... Mr. Nader rails so effectively." --David Asman, Wall Street Journal "Activist Nader sketches out places of 'convergence' where liberals and conservatives can start working together for the public good...[he] lists reforms with which many lawmakers would agree, including breaking up too-big-to-fail banks, protecting children from commercialism and ending corporate personhood." --Kirkus Reviews "One of Ralph Nader's finest efforts. A bold and lucid handbook for the future." --Patti Smith "Conservatives and liberals both look askance at the Leviathan state and realize that promises of 'doing good' often obscure the reality of 'doing well' at taxpayer expense. Those looking for opportunities for bi-partisan cooperation should look at the nexus of statism and cronyism. Unstoppable shows that opposing such corruption can bring activists of the right and left together to fight side by side." --Grover Norquist "I read Ralph Nader for the same reasons that I read Tom Paine. He knows what he thinks, says what he means, and his courage is a lesson for us all." --Lewis Lapham "Thomas Jefferson fretted that, with the passing of the founding generation, the truer patriotism that he knew as the 'Spirit of '76' would be lost. He need not have worried. Ralph Nader has recaptured the founding faith with an inspired call for a left-right coalition of conscience on behalf of democracy, liberty, fairness and peace." --John Nichols, Washington correspondent for The Nation and co-author of Dollarocracy "For more than 50 years, Nader has backed the rights of citizens against the growing influence of corporations and government leaders tied closely to those businesses...The new book offers readers broad philosophical views, as well as many detailed suggestions, about how to promote and advance a growing political alliance between the left and the right that challenges the growing alliance between Big Business and Big Government."--The Charleston Gazette "Ralph Nader's timely book once again makes him prescient in his insights about American politics. His against-the-grain prediction of a Left-Right alliance is not just a hope, but it is grounded in emerging evidence." --Cornel West "Nader at his best--original, indignant, idealistic, and on the lookout for new political alliances and possibilities. A tonic for the cynicism that's poisoning the groundwater of our democracy." --Robert B. Reich, Chancellor's Professor of Public Policy, University of California at Berkeley "No American in recent decades has done more than Ralph Nader to construct a workable alliance between the principled Right and the sincere Left to salvage our country and our national prosperity, and Unstoppable outlines his vital mission." --Ron Unz, former publisher of The American Conservative "Unstoppable is even-handed, erudite, practical and necessary. Nader harnesses his lifelong crusade for the public interest over the corporatist agenda into a treatise that is optimistic and patriotic. He demonstrably shows that effective Left-Right alliances aren't pipe dreams, but historic realities in need of strategic cultivation, for the sake of our future." --Nomi Prins, author of All the Presidents' Bankers
