I bought the book because I felt I was also a fed-up middle class American. I served in the USMC many years ago and still hold onto traditional middle class American beliefs. I see many of these beliefs challenged on a daily basis.
You will probably not agree with everything the author writes, but I found that I was nodding my head in agreement more often than not. Regardless, as the author points out, at least the topics are a basis for further discussion.
The book is an easy read, I finished it in a weekend with several interruptions. However, the topics are very thought provoking. I found myself wishing I could debate the author (or a friend) on some of the points I did not agree with (perhaps on education, for example).
Bottom line, I believe we as American's need to take personal responsibility for our actions, and this is the cornerstone theme of the book. Buy it, read it and remind those you care about to take responsibility for their actions ... for the good of our great country.
After reading the book I shared it with friends with whom we now get into friendly debates over a cigar. A great book to spice up those boring holiday dinners.
