Biography

RALPH NADER has helped us drive safer cars, eat healthier food, breathe better air, drink cleaner water, and work in safer environments for more than four decades. The crusading attorney first made headlines in 1965 with his book Unsafe at Any Speed, a scathing indictment that lambasted the auto industry for producing unsafe vehicles. Many lives have been saved by Nader’s involvement in the recall of millions of unsafe consumer products, including defective motor vehicles, and in the protection of laborers and the environment. By starting dozens of citizen groups, Ralph Nader has created an atmosphere of corporate and governmental accountability. Ralph Nader’s books include, In Pursuit of Justice, The Ralph Nader Reader, The Good Fight and The Seventeen Traditions. Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us! is Nader’s first work of fiction.
