Summary

"Divided into nineteen main topics, the book offers delightful and thought-provoking comments on the Nation, the American People, Places, Nature, Mind, the Individual, Human Relations, Social Life, Culture and Media, Literature and Language, Religion and Belief, Past and Future, History, War and the Military, International Relations, Politics and Government, Law and Order, Business and Economy, and Food." "Each main topic is divided into subtopics, providing a fuller view of each facet of American life. For example, "Culture and Media" features not just Architecture, Art, Dance, and Music, but Elvis, Marilyn, and more. The result is a rich, compelling, and often very funny word-portrait of the nation and its people."--BOOK JACKET.
