What others have said about the book

“The single most unique aspect of the book is its emphasis on relating the interviews he has conducted with people at every level. They are very revealing about the America we thought we knew. His recreation of Steinbeck’s Travels With Charlie, in a camper van with Amos, his four-legged companion, offers a refreshing view of the United States from within. This book could have probably been much longer, and included more interviews, but it achieves its purpose in calling attention to what we need to do as a country to resume our non-exceptionalist role as a leader on the world stage.” ~ Thomas J. Lindell
