Overview

Launched in 1982, USA TODAY celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2007 with the release of this engaging look at the stories that have shaped Americans� lives over the past 25 years. Utilizing the concise, award-winning journalism, rich graphics, and unique photography that have helped turn America�s first national newspaper into its largest, 25 Years of USA TODAY is a full-color coffee table book with immense flip appeal. All of the memorable events that grabbed national headlines�from the L.A. riots and 9/11 to the 1998 home-run chase and America�s quests for Olympic gold on its home soil�are chronicled in vivid detail. Trends that have redefined our day-to-day lives are also discussed: the rise of the working woman; the increase in Hispanic population; Americans� continual battle with obesity and obsession with fad diets; the impact of the Internet; and the massive growth of the video gaming industry. The book also looks abroad for historic events that have had a resounding impact on Americans, like the collapse of the Berlin Wall and the passing of Pope John Paul II. Finally, USA TODAY offers a list of the most influential Americans of the past 25 years, from Michael Jordan and Oprah Winfrey to Lance Armstrong and Sam Walton.
