Reviews

A huge anthem in praise of the American spirit.
Wonderful!....It will resurrect your faith in all of us to read this book.
Open [it] to almost any page and rich memories spill out....Read a page, any page. Then try to stop.
Anybody who wants to know where we were and how we got to where we are now-read this book. -- Arthur Miller
