Now or Never: Getting Down to the Business of Saving Our American Dream

Now or Never: Getting Down to the Business of Saving Our American Dream - Jack Cafferty The only reason I did not rate this book higher is because it mostly reads and feels like his previous book, which I did read and review here as well. If you watch Cafferty on CNN with some degree of regularity, then you have seen a lot of the material in this book. He starts with the 2008 election and works his way through current events and issues facing the U.S. Unless you have lived in a rock for a decade or so, this is not new. On the other hand, if you are not terribly informed, Jack Cafferty is pretty good at summarizing what is going on along with his sharp commentary. I think that is the problem for me as a reader: I have seen most of this before. And while he does rant quite a bit, there are not too many solutions in sight. This is not Cafferty's fault; politicians in this dying age are just lousy and incompetent, and the people who keep electing them are no better. Some events in the book already seem dated given how quick some things move (for example, his comments on immigration given the recent new legislation in Arizona). I like Cafferty, but I think this book may be a bit much overexposure for him. As in the previous book, he does feature some autobiographical narratives, and those are always interesting. Overall though, unless you are a big fan, or you are curious, you can probably skip this book. There is not a whole lot material that is new.
