As a long time fan of Jack Perry's writing I have to say that this book was very enjoyable and interesting. This is written in such a way that it is as if Jack was sitting in my living room and carrying on a good conversation. Our country is a mess in so many ways that it is just mind numbing to think about it. I an 69 years old and now retired so I have seen quite a bit of US history. Jack presents this very well and offers several ways individuals can cope with the current problems. We can't change all of these issues but we can adapt to conditions and prosper. I read this in two days and enjoyed every minute of it!
