This is nonfiction that reads like fiction - a storyline in winding, powerful currents, myriad, elegantly constructed settings, and a host of characters displaying the best and worst of their humanities. At the same time it is an informative and inspiring record of Maoist China, dot-com America, immigrant life, technology, business, and perhaps most of all, what a life can be made to be.
Lessig craftily and compellingly uncovers what is the true problem of our time as Americans, and offers up what may be done to save the nation. I've passed this book on to all my friends... you will want to as well. This is a book for all Americans - young and old, conservative, liberal, socialist, or libertarian, city dwellers, country folk, tea partier or occupier - if you are a person who is dissatisfied and looking for progress in America, this is the book for you. If you are not dissatisfied, then this book is really, really, extra super so much the book for you.
For those interested, Lessig does a great introduction to this book on YouTube as part of Google's lecture series.
