Americans Reaching for Hope
“An in depth examination of the extreme wealth disparity in the United States and the contradiction of our obsession with the pursuit of the American Dream while a huge portion of our population is living in poverty that is equivalent to that of a developing country. With surgical precision, Kristof and WuDunn dismantle the notion that anyone can "pick themselves up by their bootstraps." They show without a doubt that American poverty a self perpetuating cycle that no amount of personal responsibility (although important) can remedy and Jennifer Garner (that's right, THAT Jennifer Garner) is the perfect guide, both urgent and tender, to us, the reader to fully wrap our heads around the astronomically high stakes surrounding these issues. Tightrope exposes the cynicism that has gripped our country and provides a way forward to a more inclusive tomorrow. A heavy but important read.”Conner, BookBar
