Mr. Frank has written a very clear, well reasoned, substantiated (and substantial!) argument against the core values of the Conservative movement. (In my humble opinion, it is more of a bowel movement on the 99% of Americans, from the top 1%. Who really is the "majority"?)
As someone greatly embarrassed to have been taken in by the propaganda surrounding Bush in 2000 and 2004, and voted for him, I sincerely wish us all to take many steps back, breathe deep, calm down, then start to review (as honestly and calmly as we can) what happened. Those responsible need to be man enough to deal with the consequences of their actions.

My heart goes out to Saundra as she clearly is looking for hope: perhaps looking for that time in Frank's conclusion where the parents of current 40 and 50 year olds worked manufacturing jobs and lived more prosperous and fulfilled lives than their offspring.
True that Frank's book is not prescriptive, but there's really no surprise there. He is a historian, and as such he has done his job: recounting recent history so that we might learn to avoid the mistakes of the prior 25 years. Indeed, he has done his job very well. I haven't encountered a better journalistic or historical rendition than this fine audiobook.
The job of reversing course and bringing those days of prosperity is up to us now.
