One of television’s most recognizable political pundits, Chris Matthews offers intense curiosity, razor-sharp intelligence and rapid-fire commentary on the American political scene.

Chris Matthews is not shy about asking the tough questions as he uncovers the reality behind the spin on today’s issues. As host of MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews and a frequent commentator and expert analyst on NBC’s TODAY, Matthews is as entertaining as he is insightful. He learned the political game while working on the front lines as a speechwriter for President Jimmy Carter and as top aide to legendary House Speaker Tip O’Neill. In addition to being a gifted political commentator and a pop culture icon—Matthews and Hardball have been spoofed by Saturday Night Live—he also hosted his own syndicated Sunday talk show, NBC News’ The Chris Matthews Show, from 2002 to 2013. He is the author of numerous best-selling books: Hardball (1988; updated release 1999); Kennedy & Nixon (1996); Now, Let Me Tell You What I Really Think (2001); American: Beyond Our Grandest Notions (2002); Life’s a Campaign (2007); The Hardball Handbook: How to Win at Life (2009); Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero (2011) and Tip and the Gipper: When Politics Worked (2013), a magnificent personal history of a time when two great political opponents served together for the benefit of the country. His most recent best-selling book Bobby Kennedy: A Raging Spirit (2017) is a revealing portrait of Robert F. Kennedy that gets closer to the man than any book before.
