Editorial Reviews

Review

Nick Adams—the de Tocqueville traveler of our times—has captured the essence of why America is destined to remain great. In The American Boomerang, Nick reminds us why the virtues of exceptional America are steadfast in nature, that the challenges we face merely temper our reserve to continue our search for freedom and a civil society.

(Edwin J. Feulner, Ph.D, founder and former president of the Heritage Foundation)

Nick Adams is the antidote to all the doubts the Left has sown among us about America's mission. From across the Pacific, he has come to know us well, and love us. In a vivid and readable book, he proves that sometimes a spectator sees more of the game."

(Dick Morris, former adviser to President Bill Clinton)

Foreigners, starting with Alexis de Tocqueville, have shown a unique understanding of the United States and what it means to be an American. Now Nick Adams, a young Australian, writes in this tradition, of old-fashioned American patriotism and courage—which aren't actually old-fashioned at all.

(Michael Barone, Washington Examiner)

The American Boomerang should be compulsory reading for every American. It is a call to action, and an outside voice reminding us of our promise in the world. It reasserts the American virtues we have recently begun to abandon, like faith and freedom. Adams' conservative insight is invaluable and irresistible.

(Ben Shapiro, Editor-at-Large, Breitbart.com)

Why is this place we call America, at this time, the exception to the historical rule? Read American Boomerang to be reminded of the qualities that have made America the most prosperous, free, and benevolent nation in human history, and pass it on to those who may have forgotten.

(Dan Bongino, author of Life Inside the Bubble)

It’s the locker room at half time and the home team is listless, confused, and playing lousy. But Nick Adams has a powerful pep talk for Team USA that is just the kind of bracing, snap-out-of-it, kick-in-the-pants that a great nation needs to get back in the game to win. American Boomerang is more than a sorely needed love letter from Down Under—it’s a timely, wise, and heartfelt plea to America to embrace its inherent exceptionalism.

(Jack Fowler, publisher of National Review)

The American Boomerang is an exquisitely clear insight into our nation's story. Adams is an eloquent voice for conservatism, bringing intelligence and optimism about America's future. In clear and forceful prose, he makes a case that those who may one day lead our nation would be remiss to ignore.

(Nick Desatnick, Editor-in-Chief, Dartmouth Review)

Nick Adams is right on target in his new book, The American Boomerang. He recognizes that the source of American exceptionalism is the people and not the government. This should be an encouragement for people from every nation of the world who seek freedom and prosperity.

(Benjamin S. Carson Sr MD - Emeritus Professor of Neurosurgery, Oncology, Plastic Surgery and Pediatrics; Johns Hopkins Medicine; President and CEO American Business Collaborative, LLC)

Speaking of great works, I recommend reading Nick Adams’ new book, The American Boomerang, which has just been published on July 4.

(Chuck Norris Chuck Norris)

Adams reminds us once again why America is exceptional. His eyes are outside looking into America, as he calls out to anyone who will listen, God Bless America! As Vince Lombardi once said, "this is a football..." Adams says, "this is America... God, self-reliance, sovereignty in the people not the state, and the freedom to pursue happiness but not guarantee it." Read and refresh your Americanism, lest we into the slope of Fabianism (gradual slope toward socialism)

Very inspirational book with a message of hope while most people are ignoring there is a problem or saying it is the end of the world. If you want to feel good about where we are at and the hope for the future. Then this is the book. I also liked the book The Liberty Amendments and American Séance. both gave me hope there were options to turning the country around.

I started reading it the other night. It made me want to stand on a mountain with my hair blowing in the wind, gazing up to heaven like a superhero. "I am an American!"

I laughed a bit when I heard him referred to as "The Modern-Day DeToqueville." It's true. He visited America, spent time with the people, and understands what makes America special.

This is a book that will remind Americans who seem to have forgotten what makes America the great hope of the world.

One of the best books I have ever read, must read for Americans born after 1940. I was born in 1933 and was taught the basics in grade school. This should be required reading in every school.

I initially saw an interview with Nick Adams on television and felt compelled to read his book. Adams is an Australian who toured America and then put his thoughts based upon his observances of America and Americans in this book. Every American should read this book. It will renew your faith in just how important America and your fellow Americas are in the world view and the example of true freedom and liberty it has set for over 200 years. It also points out the dangers of a world without America and why that can't be allowed to happen. It is truly a GREAT BOOK that everyone should encourage their children to read - give it to them as a gift.

I just bought this book and am highly impressed by the insight and foresight that this young Australian brings to my American worldview. I recommend American Boomerang to anyone who is a serious student of history and wants to be inspired and believe in the American dream again. Five stars.

Can you imagine spending 2 hours with a friend, in which all that friend tells you is how wonderful you are in every single way?

That is what Nick Adams has done for us Americans with his book," The American Boomerang"! This is not our finest hour
in American History, and many of us are upset that we are not being what we have proven we can be, in the near past-an
exceptional Nation.

Let's hold Nick's book close to our hearts and minds and try, diligently, to live up to his wonderful view of us. Thank you,
Nick Adams.

I'm getting another copy so I can pass one around to cheer up all my good friends!

This is a wonderful book. I had heard the author in a radio interview. He sounded smart and had a real up-beat message. I bought it (good price) and read it in 2 days. In the intro, when I saw he was a philosophic author from Australia, I was not sure what he could bring to the American table. In short, he brought it all. What an inspiration. It's a must read.
