Top Customer Reviews
Martin engages ideas that rest in the soul of America's founding documents, America's founding vision. These are the words of equality, community, rights, justice, government. They are words that Martin contends ought center us back onto living up to the promise. His strikingly frank and honest dialogue are fresh and challenging for our current political discourse that looks for buzzwords, not engaging conversation. Speaking of being provided health care after a traffic accident while in England, Martin says, "That was England, this is America, the most moral righteous, generous, and decent of all countries, as our political leaders are fond of telling us (by the way, how do they know this? It's kind of like a corner store saying it has the world's coldest beer or a deli advertising the world's best hamburger. How can such determinations possibly be made?)." Martin holds nothing back, and is unapologetic about utilizing experience to inform ideas.
Martin is a must read for any liberal or progressive.Read more ›
