Book Description

Is America still the world's most celebrated and beloved superpower? Is this great nation poised for an amazing American century-or instead for a slow descent into mediocrity?  

In The American Boomerang, possibly one of the most important books of our time, philosopher and author Nick Adams explores America through sympathetic Australian eyes. In this fresh look, Adams reveals the turnaround nature of Americans, or their boomerang spirit.  

Optimistic while pragmatic, The American Boomerang makes the case for American exceptionalism and continued American dominance throughout this century.

It takes us from the founding to the present, sharing an inspiring vision along the way, and makes the case that American values are conservative values, and to preserve its exceptionalism, America must remain a center-right nation. Despite the prophets of gloom, in the eyes of outsider Nick Adams, America the Great will only continue to become greater.


Editorial Reviews

Review

Just as early analytical competitors in the ‘small data’ era moved out ahead of their competitors and built a sizable competitive edge, the time is now for firms to seize the big data opportunity. ... an excellent review of the opportunities involved in this revolution ... The road to the Big Data Emerald City is paved with many potholes. Reading this book can help you avoid many of them, and avoid surprise when your trip is still a bit bumpy.
—From the Foreword by Thomas H. Davenport, Distinguished Professor, Babson College; Fellow, MIT Center for Digital Business; and Co-Founder, International Institute for Analytics

4.0 out of 5 stars Adams reminds us WHY America is great! January 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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)

5.0 out of 5 stars This +Liberty Amendments + American Seance June 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Aussie Educates Americans about America November 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I have ever read July 7, 2014
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ FOR EVERY AMERICAN July 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hope Restored July 6, 2014

Format:Hardcover
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.

It's a shame that an Australian should have to remind us, that as Americans, we live in the best and most exceptional country in the world. Some of us still know this, but it's amazing that there are so many who don't. So many who hate what we are still fighting to be. They are doing their best to change us. They prefer the socialism of much of Europe. We are not Europe. We patriotic Americans do not want to be like Europe. Mr. Adams totally understands what is so special about the United States and how close we are to losing it. He did a great job in helping others understand what we are no longer taught in our schools. Kids are now told about all the bad things that have taken place through the years. Instead of explaining the circumstances of why these things took place and how we tried to correct them, many text books and teachers teach condemnation of America. They teach that believing in American Exceptionalizm is arrogant and prideful and wrong. Period.
Mr. Adams loves America and her values. He understands the Constitution and it's uniqueness and in particular, why it works so beautifully. He knows how dangerous it is for our politicians to ignore it, or worse, try to change it all together.
This book should be required reading for every school kid and their teachers. It wouldn't hurt for the increasingly progressive media, who benefit so much from freedom of the press, to read it too.
We Americans are failing our own country. Mr. Adams believes we can still turn that around. I really hope he's right.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is a question of style, not content... August 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
An "outsiders" view of America is always a good thing, I think. We fail to see what is good about ourselves because we take so many things for granted, and the 24 hour news cycle tells us everything that is wrong with us. Sometimes we need reminded that there is little we Americans cannot accomplish, especially if we put aside our differences and do it. Whether we like it or not, whether we think ourselves worthy or not, the whole world looks to us. .

Unfortunately, there are those who make a lot of money and acquire a lot of power keeping us divided, on BOTH sides of the political equation.

What Nick Adams has tried to do, I think, is show us what is good about America. In that task, he largely succeeds, mostly by pointing out things we do not notice because they are a part of our daily lives and don't get reported by those 24 hour a day news outlets. Who really notices things like church attendance, for one example, that are so much a part of the fabric of American lives? What the author does is point at what is good about America, and insists that we look. He is passionate about insisting to a fault..

Because of that, the book can seem preachy, even pedantic at times. Those things tend to dilute his very important message to us, and made it hard for this reader to finish.
