Emmy Award-winning journalist Jorge Ramos looks back on groundbreaking interviews with rebels such as President Barack Obama, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, Spike Lee, Barbara Walters, Fidel Castro, and more. 

After 30 fascinating years uncovering the hard truth, Jorge Ramos opens up for the first time about life-altering lessons by sharing captivating never-before-told stories. Widely recognized for his unapologetic, no-holds-barred approach to interviewing global leaders, business titans, democratic policy makers, and dictators, Ramos unearths their one common trait—they were all rebels at one point in their lives.   

Rebels are different. They decided to challenge the prevailing status quo. Sometimes they rebelled to change a regime, other times to prevent abuse or discrimination, but in all cases they strived to correct an injustice.

Candid and at times controversial, Ramos draws invaluable awareness of issues that influence the mindset of the largest minority in the country—Latinos—and how they will undoubtedly shape not only presidential elections but also the future of America.

«La gente me pregunta si soy periodista o activista. La verdad es que soy simplemente un periodista que hace preguntas, pero uno que, en efecto, toma una postura». —Jorge Ramos
 
Después de treinta fascinantes años de estar desenmascarando la verdad, Jorge Ramos, el periodista ganador de varios premios Emmy, habla por primera vez de las lecciones de vida que ha aprendido en su carrera. Son cautivadoras historias, muy personales y nunca antes compartidas. Ampliamente reconocido por su forma franca y sin limitaciones de entrevistar a líderes mundiales, titanes de los negocios, políticos de todo tipo y dictadores, Jorge descubre el denominador común que los une: todos son rebeldes.
 
Los rebeldes son diferentes. En un determinado momento decidieron poner a prueba el estatus quo. Algunas veces ser rebelaron para logar un cambio de régimen, en otras para evitar abusos o discriminaciones, pero en casi todos los casos lograron corregir una injusticia. 
 
En Sin Miedo-Lecciones De Rebeldes, Ramos recupera sus principales entrevistas con rebeldes y poderosos como el presidente Barack Obama, los dos presidentes Bush, la ministra de la Corte Suprema de Justicia Sonia Sotomayor, Fidel Castro y Hugo Chávez,  entre muchos otros. De manera honesta y a veces controversial, Jorge Ramos hace las preguntas que pocos se atreven. Al mismo tiempo, nos presenta una optimista visión de los Latinos, de la manera en que influirán en las próximas elecciones presidenciales y en el futuro de Estados Unidos.
