The individuals and families who are paying the price of America’s bad choices in recent decades form the book’s emotional center: an exhausted high school student in Brooklyn who works the overnight shift in a factory at minimum wage to help pay her family’s rent; a 24-year-old soldier from Peachtree City, Georgia, who loses both legs in a misguided, mismanaged, seemingly endless war; a young woman, only recently engaged, who suffers devastating injuries in a tragic bridge collapse in Minneapolis; and a group of parents in Pittsburgh who courageously fight back against the politicians who decimated funding for their children’s schools.

The great benefactor of truth & eloquent sadness.
Bob Herbert is an excellent narrator and author in this well tailored body of work. Every change in which you have seen take place in this country over the last, 30 plus years , he has also. In a comprehensive manner he speaks of which you know ,yet are ambivalent to admit . Because we have truly "lost our way" .
