"A vibrant, sweeping analysis of the roots of American self-indulgence"
"This ringing, provocative jeremiad cuts a path through a haze of self-indulgent thought and action in the "me first" society."
"Wonderful...a delight to read, even exciting...There are few books that inspire real enthusiasm. This is one of them."
--The Philadelphia Enquirer
