We Can All Do Better | [Bill Bradley]

We Can All Do Better

In We Can All Do Better, for the first time since the financial meltdown and since the worst of the intensifying political gridlock, Bill Bradley offers his own concise, powerful, and highly personal review of the state of the nation. He argues that government is not the problem. He criticizes the role of money and politics, explains how continuing on our existing foreign policy, electoral, and economic paths will mean a diminished future, and lays out exactly what needs to be done to reverse course.

Publisher's Summary

Bill Bradley is arguably one of the most well-versed public figures of our time. The 18-year New Jersey Senator, financial and investment adviser, Olympic and NBA athlete, national radio host, and best-selling author has lived in the United States as both political insider and outsider, national sports celebrity and behind-the-scenes confidante, leader and teammate. His varied experiences help to inform his unique and much-sought-after point of view on Washington and the country at large.

In We Can All Do Better, for the first time since the financial meltdown and since the worst of the intensifying political gridlock, Bradley offers his own concise, powerful, and highly personal review of the state of the nation. Bradley argues that government is not the problem. He criticizes the role of money and politics, explains how continuing on our existing foreign policy, electoral, and economic paths will mean a diminished future, and lays out exactly what needs to be done to reverse course. Breaking from the intransigent, long-held viewpoints of both political parties, and with careful attention to our nation’s history, Bradley passionately lays out his narrative. He offers a no-holds-barred prescription on subjects including job creation, deficit reduction, education, and immigration. While equally critical of the approaches of the Tea Party and Occupy movements, he champions the power of individual Americans to organize, speak out, bridge divisions, and he calls on the media to assume a more responsible role in our national life.

As this moving call to arms reminds us, we can all—elected officials, private citizens, presidents—do a better job of moving our country forward. Bradley is perhaps the best guide imaginable, with his firsthand knowledge of governments' inner-workings, the country’s diversity, and the untapped potential of the American people.

What the Critics Say

"Bill Bradley is gone from the NBA and Senate but in this timely book he reminds us that the demands of citizenship never stop— and he offers a plan to get America back in the game." (Tom Brokaw)

"For all of us who care about the renewal of our country and the revitalization of our politics, this extraordinary book provides an indispensable guide. Bradley speaks with unusual clarity, candor, insight and passion about the problems we face and the road we can take to move forward. This book should be widely read." (Doris Kearns Goodwin, Pulitzer Prize-winning author and presidential historian)

"Bill Bradley’s We Can All Do Better is a clarion call to Americans of every political stripe and walk of life to stand up and demand of themselves and of their leaders the fair play, idealism, discipline and optimism that made America a beacon for the world. This thoughtful book deserves wide attention." (Henry Kissinger)

    "Breaking out of the new normal"

    Bradley shares his advise on how politics and society can be done differently rather than settling for the new normal. His years on the hill gives the read an I testing perspective.

    "Enjoyable"

    The book was very interesting and informative. I wish politicians could speak like this while they are still in office.

    Story
    "A generally balanced view of the things in the US"
    Would you consider the audio edition of We Can All Do Better to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version but this version was excellent


    What did you like best about this story?

    A generally balanced view of what is wrong with our wonderful democracy. Well considered and presented in such a way that a republican can read it and understand the democratic view and vice versa.

    The author

    Story
    "Dully written and read"
    Would you try another book from Bill Bradley and/or Peter Ganim and Bill Bradley ?

    Too left leaning. I was especially turned off by remarks about race, when we are perhaps the least racist country in the world.


    Has We Can All Do Better turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not at all. Just read a very good one, HOW EVIL WORKS.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Ganim and Bill Bradley ’s performances?

    Neither
