This is probably one of the most important social science books in decades. What binds us together as Americans? What gives us the tools to succeed? Religiosity, Industriousness, Marriage and Respect for Law are the four characteristics that Murray examines using over 50 years of data. He shows how America is dividing into upper and lower classes, and how the change in culture and the college sorting machine are, in large part, responsible for this division. It's an important book and doesn't say what you might guess.
The narrator's accent is difficult to pick up. The recording itself is very poor.
The book was made into a movie, The Fugitive, with Henry Fonda playing the priest. Yes, I would go to see it.
