Overview

The Average American: The Extraordinary Search for the Nation's Most Ordinary Citizen by Kevin O'Keefe

Featuring story and research updates, this is the second edition of Kevin O'Keefe's celebrated bestseller.

Lively, fun, thought-provoking, and more moving than one could have any right to expect, the book shines as "a twist of the sharpest citrus peel," according to Britain's The Independent. Proclaims Newsweek, "The journey toward run-of-the-mill has never been so remarkable." The New York Times: "...intriguing, combining as it does the elements of a detective story and the trivia interest of Ripley's Believe It or Not."

The Average American is a well-researched, in-depth look at all that is good about ordinary. Right from the beginning, I was absorbed into the remarkable world of the everyday American. Through the use of engaging prose and strong methodology, Kevin O'Keefe took me on a fascinating journey through the heart and soul of the common American. By the end, not only had I taken pleasure from a well-crafted, first-rate book, I found myself admiring the country's most ordinary citizen.
