It was interesting to hear Mr. Rather’s perspective on issues he experienced in the last that are still very relevant in today’s world.

Rather's book is a pointed and gentle homage to our country and its complicated history, present and future, and a good reminder of our recent past. He writes well, making it an easy read, and I couldn't find a typo, which is rare these days. I really enjoyed this book, and was surprised at how much he's mellowed in his mature years. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Dang. What a wonderful book. Dan Rather has always had a way with words, but I had forgotten how truly talented he is. Must read.
