Threshold Editions to Publish “Truths” by Vivek Ramaswamy

NEW YORK, June 21, 2024 – Threshold Editions, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, announced today that it will publish TRUTHS: The Future of America First by New York Times bestselling author and former U.S. presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy.  

Today conservatives know what they’re against. They’re anti-woke, anti-globalist, anti-big government. But what exactly do they stand for? The fact that this is a hard question to answer is a damning indictment of the modern Republican Party which has abjectly failed to articulate an affirmative alternative to the left’s vision. Ramaswamy calls on the conservative movement to articulate exactly what it stands for, or else warns of another illusory “red wave” in 2024.

Vivek Ramaswamy is not a politician. He is a first-generation American, educated at America’s top educational institutions, the founder of several successful companies, a father of two sons, and a bestselling author. Ramaswamy decided to enter the arena to end the lies and finally tell Americans the truth – not just when it’s easy, but when it’s hard. That’s why he ran for president and became a leading voice in the America First movement.

In TRUTHS: The Future of America First, Ramaswamy reveals how brutal honesty about controversial subjects, from climate change to gender ideology to the existence of God, is a requirement for the continued existence of the United States. Ramaswamy lifts the curtain on cynical forces exploiting Americans by dividing them through falsehood and lays out a vision for the future direction of the America-First movement – one that began in 1776. 

“Conservatives need a clear vision for the Republican party this election season if we don’t want a repeat of the abysmal results at the ballot box in 2018, 2020, 2022, and 2023,” said Vivek Ramaswamy. “This book offers a vision for that future. To chart a new path, we must stand for truth. The modern left has abandoned truth, often dismissing it as an inconvenient social construct. In the book, I lay out ten hard truths that the American conservative movement must embrace wholeheartedly, if we stand a chance of saving our nation before we permanently lose it.” 

Vivek Ramaswamy is an American business leader, New York Times bestselling author, and former top 2024 Republican U.S. presidential candidate. Born and raised in Cincinnati, he graduated summa cum laude in biology from Harvard and received his J.D. from Yale Law School, while working at a hedge fund. He then started a biotech company, Roivant Sciences, where he oversaw the development of five drugs that went on to become FDA-approved. He has since founded numerous successful companies, including Strive and Chapter. He is married to Dr. Apoorva Ramaswamy, a throat surgeon in Columbus, Ohio, where they are raising their two sons.

Paul Choix, Senior Editor, acquired North American, open market, and audio rights from Keith Urbahn at Javelin. Threshold Editions will publish TRUTHS on September 24, 2024.
