Yes, it is a great tale about a simple man with simple tastes and a sterling character.
This story shows that there is more than money to life - like satisfaction and honor. When you live a quality life, doing what satisfies your soul, all the money you need will flow to you.
I found it difficult in the beginning, but became so enraptured with the story that those things that bothered me to begin with became insignifigant
I read this book 40 or 50 years ago, and enjoyed it then. Finding it again was like finding a lost treasure. I shall be looking for more books written by Mr. Shute.
Whle a Canadian, I follow US politics as closely as the average American. While I was not a supporter of Obama because of his policies, this opposition was somewhat muted by my own "white guilt". While not wanting Obama to win, I was not overly upset because it did mark an historic landmark to have an African American elected to be the President of what was, at the time of his election, the most powerful country in the world. However, since that time, the worst of my fears have come to fruition, as I have seen his policies first slowly and ever more quickly erode the financial and the political power that once was supreme in all the world. While I think that this was inevitable given past governments, both Democrats Replicans, I believe that it has been accelerated under President Obama.
Dinesh D'Sousa's book provides a great deal of light on who President Obama is and how he got that way. While I'm sure that his character is much more complex than outlined in the book, as we all are, the book provides a window into a character who burst upon the political scene, a virtual unknown. While Mr. D'Sousa's obvious conservative values show through, particularly when outlining what Obama should have done, the true value is in his description of his theories as to the reasons why he has done the things that he has done. Well written and a captivating book!
