We Can All Do Better by Bill Bradley

From Goodreads: 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.

Wow! Everyone American should read this book! Bill Bradley takes the problems in our nation and offers up and offers up a solution.  He outlines both sides of the coin, so to speak, coming up with a solution that will meet the needs of both sides but puts the people first.   He doesn't gloss over anything, but lays it all out on the line - including finances, politics and foreign policy.  I found myself shaking my head in agreement over and over - not only because he made sense, but because I agreed with so  much of it.  A great, thought-provoking read that I highly urge you to pick up!!

About the Author:
Senator Bradley served in the U.S. Senate from 1979 to 1997 representing the state of New Jersey. In 2000, he was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States. He holds a BA degree in American History from Princeton University and an MA degree from Oxford University where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He has authored six books on American politics, culture and economy. Prior to serving in the Senate, Senator Bradley was an Olympic gold medalist in 1964 and a professional basketball player with the New York Knicks from 1967 to 1977 during which time they won 2 NBA championships. In 1982 he was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
