I forced myself to read as much of this as I could stand, then returned it the day after I bought it. The bar code on the back of the dust cover indicates that this book should be shelved as BUSINESS & ECONOMICS/Finances. It should say FICTION/Children's Fantasy. Don't be fooled by the cover. This father and son tag team are not experts in anything except hypocrisy. I thought I was buying a serious book about the causes of the problems facing the nation. Instead I found nothing more than the same old tired rehashing of Obama-bashing Tea Party propaganda disguised as Christian ethics.
If you want a serious book about what is happening to the nation try Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle or American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America by Chris Hedges. Then skim this book in the store and you will quickly see the difference between intelligent and informed expertise and quackery.
B&N forces raters to use at least one star. Otherwise this book fails to rise to the level of anything related to stars.
