This is the book that everyone needs to own. It is as eye opening and revealing as flipping on a light switch and illuminating the countryside. I couldn't bear to read on, couldn't bear to put it down. It is thought provoking and honest, presenting a clear path from the past to the present and on to the future. Every politican should buy this book and maybe America can get on the right path again. No matter where you are in your stage of the game, this steps it up. Amazing!!!

Finally someone got it right. WPA for a start, coupled with separating health care from jobs, will do more for our country than everything Wall Street and the politicians have dreamed up. A must read for everyone.
