If you have the chance to read only one book in your life, this should be the one you pick.
Just reading 2 pages from the beginning gives one a fresh outlook. Cannot recommend enough. Buy one today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent !!!, 1 July 2010
I was never interested in American history (felt how much of there is to read about?) but somehow was prompted to read more about the build-up/background of American thought and actions (expecially post the Gulf of Mexico oil spill).

Reading the book, it is quite evident that the author has a deep understanding of American past.

The material presented is also constructed in a very interesting way, showcasing historical events against interesting themes.

Overall an excellent purchase.

Highly recommended. Helped me to some extent in understanding the 'why' aspect of American behavior in the 20th and 21st century.
