Reviews

"At once enlightened and enlightening...[American society] could use more of the generous responsible spirit Friedman and Mandelbaum recommend." --The New York Times Book Review

"Thoroughly researched and passionately argued...That Used to Be Us is an important contribution to an intensifying debate, and it deserves the widest possible attention....Compelling." --The New York Times

"Anyone who cares about America's future---anyone planning to vote in 2012---ought to read this book and hear the authors' compelling case." --The Christian Science Monitor

"An important and eminently readable book." --The New York Review of Books

"Touches a nerve...In a country whose politicians are partisan intransigents and whose commentators are more interested in zingers than solutions, it takes courage to be so baldly civic-minded." --BusinessWeek
