Michael Adams' American Backlash is the sort of non-fiction I like to read: it presents an atypical argument, it's fairly easy to read and it avoids unnecessary jargon.

On the other hand, the four quadrants that organize all of the responses on a two-dimensional grid (Authority vs. Individuality, and Survival vs. Fulfillment) are NOT well explained.

I read 50 pages of politically correct juvenile crap and other than suffering through a sales job for Environics, I gained no real information. Even the cool-aid drinking public policy advisors painting the snowflake world would probable throw this book away. The book is not even sensible enough to be offensive – just a waste. See a Problem?

Rather, it is politically disengaged Americans, people who increasingly embrace values of brash individualism and hedonism, who are the greatest barometer of where American society is headed. To read this book, upload an EPUB or FB2 file to Bookmate.
