Publisher's Summary

Enough with the infighting, the truth-denying, the wild conspiracy claims, the looking backward, and the refusal to focus on the dangerous Biden agenda. Here’s Chris Christie’s urgent guide for recapturing Republican glory and winning elections again, told with all the New Jersey frankness and news-breaking insights that have made the two-term governor, Trump early endorser, and presidential candidate an indispensable voice and instant New York Times best-selling author.

As governor of New Jersey and a key Trump insider and longtime friend, Chris Christie has always been known for speaking his mind. Now that the depressing 2020 election is finally behind us, he shares his bold insights on how a battered Republican Party can soar into the future and start winning big elections again.

The wrong answers are everywhere. Dangerous conspiracy theorists. A tired establishment. Truth deniers and political cowards. In Republican Rescue, Christie reveals exactly how absurd grievances and self-inflicted wounds sabotaged Donald Trump’s many successes and allowed Democrats to capture the White House, the House, and Senate in two years - a first for the GOP since the days of Herbert Hoover. In his frank and compelling voice, Christie dissects the last year of the Trump administration - which provoked nothing but conspiracy theories and infighting - and he lays out an honest and hopeful vision, explaining how Republicans can capture the future and save America from today’s damaging Democratic excesses.

The core Republican values of Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Ronald Reagan are as relevant now as they’ve ever been, Christie writes. Opportunity for all. A strong national defense. Leaders we can all be proud of. Americans in charge of their own lives. A federal government that answers to the people - not the other way around. But these Republican ideals need to be reinvigorated with fresh clarity and open arms. Christie watched in horror as some in his beloved party embraced paranoia and explained away violence. Determined to restore the party’s integrity and success, he shows how to build a movement voters will flock to again, a Republicanism that’s blunt, smart, conservative, potent, and perfectly suited for the 21st century.

Well written

This book is very well written. Chris Christie did a great job narrating his work and I agree with almost all of his points on what needs to be done to save the Republican party. He does state multiple times about telling the truth and getting away from conspiracy theories, however he falls short discussing how that can happen. And he falls way short on discussing an organized coup to subvert the will of the voters. As a long time republican I was one of the many who felt a need to vote Democrat in 2020 because of all the lunatics and their conspiracies on the Republican side. Chris made a lot of strong points to try and win me back. I wish he would have taken it one step further. Overall, this was a very good book and enjoyable to listen to.

I’m a democrat and nothing scares me more then people believing in all these conspiracy theories. Thank you for NOT believing in Conspiracy Theories & thank you for recognizing that Trump adds fuel to them! It gives me hope for the Republican Party, I was able to listen to this book with an open mind and hope you have the strength to run in 2024 without fear of trumpers retaliation! Good luck!

The Republican party is in desperate need of being rescued… from itself…

As someone who voted for Ronald Reagan, both Bush’s I was so looking forward to hearing the plan to rescue the party…

Section One showed a little promise, especially as Christie spelled out the guidance Trump IGNORED during the 2016 race. Thank goodness that Trump ignored the very sound and well articulated advice Christie offered. If Trump hadn’t we could very well had four more years of Republican rule and the further dismantling of norms.

Section Two showed even more promise when one by one, Christie corrected the record on several of the biggest lies and frauds, Republicans spread so easily today.

But Chris…. Section three was a disaster. Packed with lies and half truths and the blatant misrepresentation of the facts…. What an amazing disappointment. I had planned on recommending this book to friends and family, right up until Christie went off the rails and began spinning his own web of lies…

Sad…

Republicans would be smart to take his advice

Well written and presented with reason and facts. Typical, he told it as he saw it. Republicans do need to return to a sound policy position on the issues not on a personality. The party would be wise to listen to the advice in this book. So would Republican voters. Worth the read.

Chris Christie for President 2024

Chris deserves a lot of respect for telling the Republicans like it is! This book is fact based and Chris points out that the conspiracy theories are just that, with no evidence to support the theories. While Donald Trump was/is a great friend of his, Chris points out the many mistakes that he made and how his presidency brought the party down, along with those Republican congressmen and women who supported all of the debunked lies. Chris has great ideas on how to fix the party and fix this country. Some of what he criticized Biden on has now taken place, which shows that Chris would support the policies on Russia. Our biggest enemy, however, is China. Chris makes it clear and points out why.

Anyone reading/listening to this book, please make sure you also listen to his other book, Let me finish, which goes through the 2016 election and Trump presidency, and his relationship with Donald Trump from the start and why Jared had it in for Chris from day one.

Better than expected

I am neither D or R. Smart, focused and a little heavy handed. Next president?

Authentic, good insights, and political strategy

The book is interesting to hear because Chris tells it in an honest authentic way, that you know is true. He doesn’t sugar coat it. Great insights about the Trump administration, who he supports, both good and bad. Interesting recount of past presidential history, use of conspiracy theories and what happened in the end. He debunks the conspiracy theories of today and calls on Republicans to reject the crazies. Chris highlights the weaknesses of the current Biden administration and outlines his vision for the future. It is rational, clear and easy to support. I enjoyed this book. Smart ideas. Definitely recommend reading his first book “Let Me Finish” first, if you can. Great insights why Kushner didn’t like Chris and why Christie was justified in putting his father behind bars. Short book, worth reading. It’s great to hear the reading from Governor Christie himself.

As a Democrat I thoroughly appreciated your book.

Actually I agree with a lot of what said.

I think you spoke very well in your book and I think you would make a good President. I am very happy with you deciding to narrate your book yourself. I do disagree on a few things but I agreed with way more than disagree. I'm not sure how you view the conservative Christian Nationalism Republicans are now pushing very heavily. I don't know how you feel about Roe v Wade being overturned either. If you disagree with our rights being taken away, the banning of books, and integrating religion into schools then I would support you 100%. You would need to want to codify Roe into law, stop the book banning, and keep church and state separate in order for me to vote for you. I wanted to write this in my review simply because you're the 1st Republican I see as a viable choice to lead our country and I don't know how else to reach you. Anyway, the book was awesome! I'll be checking out your other books. Thank you for writing this book!
