As the man who coined the phrase "The Greatest Generation" and wrote another bestseller (Boom!) on the long-term influence of Baby Boomers, Tom Brokaw seems eminently qualified to reflect on the current state of the American Dream. Self-described as a conversation about our country, The Time of Our Lives asks hard questions about the malaise and cynicism that seem to pervade our country. Brokaw's answers take him back to the root values of hard work, public responsibility, and trustworthiness that made this small-town South Dakota offshoot one of America's most respected news broadcasters. He draws on stories of real people of several generations who coped with deprivation and adversity to achieve great things. A superb conversation starter.
