Description

Game Changers: Stories of remarkable individuals and their impact on our world.

Once a beloved public figure with an impressive legislative record, Ralph Nader spearheaded the modern Consumer Movement and his work with his citizen groups can be linked to things we take for granted like seat belts, airbags, product labeling and even the free ticket you get after being bumped from an overbooked flight. Then Nader ran for President as an independent, opening the door to Republican George W. Bush, and became one of the most despised men in America. An Unreasonable Man charts the stark rise and fall of his polarizing career and sets the record straight on the enigma that is Ralph Nader.
