Has America simply wandered off course, or have we dug a hole from which we can’t climb out? Tom Brokaw asks this question and many others in his new book, The Time of Our Lives.

He believes various private interest groups funneling money into our political system has caused a national divide that has distracted us from a sense of common good. This decline in values has also caused a loss of nationalistic pride making us an easy target for hijackers who could steer our country down a destructive path.
Brokaw does believe, however, that we can regain our national confidence and learn to interact in an ever-crowded world. Brokaw engages in a conversation about our country, offering many ideas for how we can revitalize the promise of the American Dream.
