With the worst of America on grotesue display on an almost daily basis at the moment it s refreshing to read something that showcases some of that country s best characteristics In addition to its core focus on professional pride and fulfilment there are stories here of dramatic social mobility and uiet dignified heroism in the face of racism sexism homophobia and depravation An anthology of everyday Americans talking about their jobs and personal philosophies is the kind of thing I would usually run a mile to avoid and I suspect many fellow cynics will steer clear of this book fearing intolerable levels of preachy sentimentality I believe they will be missing out because this is one of the wisest most moving and thought provoking things I ve read in a long time Part philosophy part social history and part self help book in a good way
