The Time of Our Lives: A conversation about America, by Tom Brokaw

WW does not ordinarily recommend books, because WW’s editor does not read that many whole books. However, I did read Tom Brokaw’s latest book and it is worth your attention. I would not try to do it justice by describing it in my own words, but I think its essence is well described in the opening paragraph of the preface.
