I received a copy of this book through a GoodReads.com giveaway and the following is my honest opinion for it.
This book is a far cry from the myriad of genres of fiction books and memoirs I’ve reviewed to date. It’s not the type of book readers can read right through without taking any sort of break; they need to absorb each one chapter one at a time to reap the greatest benefits this book has to offer them.
The manner in which Mr. Kiernan has written his fact-filled book causes readers to want to read more by eagerly turning to the next page, which is usually not prevalent in books of this genre. Taking readers on a time travel trip to the past to view FDR taking us out of the Depression the entire nation had still been reeling in when he took office, adds a glimmer of hope for the middle class in seeing some light at the end of the tunnel to their present economic condition. One needs to look at the economic history of this country in order to avoid any possible repeat of the faux pas which has already transpired in the past.
For his thought-provoking endeavor I’m giving Mr. Kiernan 5 STARS.
