In this profoundly important, inspirational book, Dan Quayle, America's 44th Vice President, introduces us to five American families who speak bluntly - and often poignantly - about the values that give them strength. Quayle and his collaborator, psychologist Diane Medved, journeyed thousands of miles to meet with and interview a diverse mix of families. Liberal and conservative; Christian and non-Christian; black, white, and mixed race - these families till the rich Virginia soil, walk the streets of East L.A., grapple with single motherhood, confront racial hatred, and learn to live with disabilities. They are us. And in this audio they gather around dining-room tables and backyard barbecues to reveal the truth about what it takes to keep a marriage intact (or to keep going when, despite best efforts, it falls apart), to raise happy kids who make something of themselves, and to build community even in difficult circumstances.
