Dan Foster's book is pretty accurately described by the title. Beginning with the premise that our country has a lot of problems, the book is a compilation of emails that the author has received, plus his own commentary concerning these problems and some recommended solutions. I've received some of these emails myself, and I imagine that many others have, as well.

One of the recurring themes is the failure of Congress to act on our problems, and the perception that congressmen are more interested in increasing their personal wealth and providing themselves with perks that most Americans don't have. One email proposed a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would prohibit Congress from making any law that applies to citizens that does not apply equally to Congressmen.

Other threads concern the United States' participation in foreign wars, health care, government waste, public welfare, gasoline prices, illegal immigrants, and the national debt.

Having received several of these emails myself, often with a long string of "Forwards," I know that many - or most - people who forward these things don't try to verify the accuracy of the emails' content. I usually check them out with websites like Snopes.com. For example, one of the emails touts the huge oil reserves in the "Bakken formation" in Montana and North Dakota, and declares that the U.S. could eliminate oil imports by developing this resource. It sounds great, but when you check it out, you find that there's some validity to the claim, but there are also a lot of problems with it, too.

Overall, I enjoyed the book. Usually, in books about politics and governance, there is a dominant viewpoint, either liberal or conservative. I didn't pick on any particular bias or slant in Presidential Ideas.

This is an excellent book! It is easy to read, thought provoking and necessary at this particular time in our country. Dan Foster has stepped up to the plate to get us all thinking about what we, the people, need to do to get this country "right" again!
