Not as good as his other books, but, like everything he writes, lucid and a pleasure to read. I think I had read half the book in excerpts before I cracked my copy.

Vivid picture of another part of America, along with the acknowledgement that it won't be so easy to make America great again. Not perfect, by any means, but worth the effort.
Great collection of interviews with icons of the 1970s, celebrities, activists, everybody. The times they have a changed.
Very helpful concise history of politics and culture in the region from the beginning until now. Recommended.
Interesting premisse, repeated over and over again in various opaque epigrams. Short book that seemed to go on forever, oddly appropriate, I guess.
