I did enjoy this book which I read while in Charleston, and it made me think about America differently to what I otherwise might have. Some really good sections on American health care and the legal framework that did challenge some preconceived ideas - big corporations despise lawyers who take on cases for the little man, which is why everyone knows the story about the woman who spilled hot coffee at McDs.

A geat book! Wonderful read. I used to think of the United States as only a bully and i thought of it only in terms of its reputation over the past few years. But this book has correctly put out that its strength lies not in its ability to intimidate but to inspire. The seques and small interactions with people and their mini stories are what make this book thoroughly beautiful.It just went with me everywhere till i could finish it. Kudos!

Probably the best travel book on America I've read all round. The author has the insights of a born and bred American combined with his experiences of living in Europe most of his adult life. It's full of well researched information on life in America in the early 21st century as well as pithy observations on people and places he encounters. I just wish it was twice as long.
