Dream of a Nation: Inspiring Ideas and Calls For Action

Edited by Tyson Miller. See Innovation (www.seeinnovation.org), $29.95 (446p) ISBN 978-0615482262
At a time when the country is in dire need of a jolt to revive the spirits of many Americans, this decidedly progressive work by the SEE Innovation Project seeks to deliver such a spark. Using statistics–some depressing, others eye-opening–to outline the problems facing the country, the book breaks ranks from much of the public discourse that focuses solely on what’s wrong with the county by collecting numerous experts’ recommendations about what can be done to turn the country around. Suggestions range from what individuals can do to improve the environment–switch to more energy-efficient light bulbs, for example–to steps the government can take to improve the quality of healthcare. Miller uses a perfect blend of text and graphics to spell out what can and should be done to move the country forward; a must-read for anyone who wants to be a part of the solution. (Oct.)
