Item description for We've Got It Made In America (Not Available-Out Of by John Ratzenberger & Joel Engel...

While filming his show John Ratzenberger's Made in America on the Travel Channel, John Ratzenberger gets an up-close view of the American industries whose products and workers once made our nation the most self-sufficient in the world. Yet with companies opting every day to move their factories overseas, it sometimes seems that we're losing more than our jobs. We may also be losing our way as Americans. Too many of us equate a country that's not perfect with one that's inferior. No country, not even America, can survive a chronic lack of national pride or the idea that patriotism is only for the mindless. Nor can the American way of life endure without a profound appreciation for hard work and the products created by skillful hands.

In this collection of insightful essays, John captures what most of us hold dear in our hearts but which too few of us declare loudly and proudly. John points out:

why America still needs to fight the war in Iraq

how political correctness is destroying American tradition

where the Woodstock generation went wrong

and why we still have nothing to fear but fear itself.

Reviews - What do customers think about We've Got It Made In America (Not Available-Out Of?

A Must Read!  Nov 25, 2007
John blends his background, humor, facts and common sense opinions into a must read book. To get this kind of perspective from someone in the entertainment industry is refreshing to be sure.
Makes good points but .....  Oct 10, 2007
I wish I had read all the reviews before buying this book. At least I bought a used copy. As another reviewer wrote, this book starts off very well and I looked forward to more stories about workplaces and life in general across the US. He even wrote that not all workplaces are "happy" environments for the workers. And just as things were getting interesting, the book turned into a Fox News Rush Limbaugh rant. And after the first chapter of this, I understood his perspective but from then on, it kept getting worse with even more of the same. He obviously loves the idea of US as world's policeman even though we cannot afford this and at least points out the hypocrisy of our wars for "freedom" while ignoring places like Africa. He also criticizes Bush for illegal immigration (but that is a Fox News stance, too). And that affects our jobs and livelihoods.
There are some self-contradictions as well. He praises the "garage shops" of years past where father and son would work on "projects" and some businesses actually got their start. And then later he curses pack-rat syndrome where we accumulate so much especially in our garages. But then he does not acknowledge the change (in how it got this way or his point of view in the book).
In a few places he does make good points. But this was more like buying a CD and only getting one good song while the rest suck. Check this one out at the library, skim for the good parts, and watch the show (which is great).
Must read!  Mar 30, 2007
This book is a must read for anyone who loves America and embraces traditional American values like hard work.
A must read for all Americans!  Jan 21, 2007
I have been a huge fan of the Made In America TV series, so I was very excited to learn about this book. I was not disapointed. This should be required reading in every High School and for every American. It's a wonderful look at our country and what makes us great. I plan on getting the "on/off switch" set up for my cable tv this weekend. My kids are going outside! John has my vote for Emperor!
excellent  Jan 16, 2007
