Political Science, Hardcover
America is addicted to outrage, we're at the height of a twenty-year bender, and we need an intervention. In [this book], ... Beck addresses how America has become more and more divided--both politically and socially. Americans are now less accepting, less forgiving, and have lost faith in many of the country's signature ideals, he says ... With a nod to a traditional twelve-step program, each chapter encourages self-reflection and growth and shows us the way to a more hopeful, happy future. Beck draws from his own life experiences and includes relevant examples for each step, from families who learned to forgive killers to remembering to believe in something greater than ourselves. -Publisher marketing.
