Don Winslow is a bestselling crime fiction author, political activist, a hope warrior, and one of our premiere truth-tellers. His videos about the dangers to democracy embodied by Donald Trump and the Republican Party have been viewed online more than 250 million times.
Don Winslow is the author of many bestselling novels, including "Savages" (2010), "The Cartel" (2015), "The Force" (2017), and "The Border" (2019). His work has also been adapted for major Hollywood movies and TV series. His new book, the first in a trilogy, is "City on Fire."
He explains that the struggle to save American democracy will be a very long one and that exhaustion, quitting, and surrender are not options. Winslow also warns that Donald Trump and his cabal will escape serious punishment for their crimes and why naïve optimism is the enemy of democracy and the long struggle against the global right.
Don Winslow also offers advice on writing and his vocation, and the lessons about life and being a good father, husband, man, and citizen that he learned from his role-models and mentors.
