This book is unusually bad. I struggled to keep a straight face, and assumed that the author was just looking for a way to capitalize on 9/11 by quickly throwing together a book to sell.

Ridiculous Dec 18 2001
By Jessica Nayowith - Published on Amazon.com
I started reading this book fully expecting to be impressed. I wasn't. To begin with, the writing is all over the place. In the middle of making a point the author goes off on a "patriotic" tangents and doesn't seem to give any clear reasoning. As for the content, the idea of our "allies" in Europe and "tolerance" seem nice unless you know anything about the European Union and the new world order. If so, the book reads like on big piece of propaganda. "Trust the Federal Reserve?" And while your at it, throw out your constitutional rights in the name of security.
I concider myself a very patriotic person who is proud to live in America but, if our forefathers had simply relied on their country's leaders to think for them, America wouldn't exist.

Rosie's are red, Violets are blue... Jan. 22 2002
By TaraHonkeyhead - Published on Amazon.com
This book's the paper that should clean my poo.
Synergies his core competencies, but unlike his oft-quoted UPS, does not deliver.

Timely and interesting... Dec 5 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Dr. Rosensweig presents a clear set of eleven rules readers should follow to help America. Each of the rules is easy to follow and aids the reader in addition to the country. A wonderful foreward by Ken Blanchard (One Minute Manager) precedes the rules and James Blanchard of Synovus Corp. provides a nice postscript. Well chosen quotes sprinkled throughout the book help reinforce the patriotic theme.
