Still, if you’re wanting to see the glass of freedom as half full we have the book for you.
This month our Book PD Club looks into the man with a name a mile long, whom took the most famous road trip ever and turned it into the book Democracy in America: Alexis Charles Henri Clérel, Viscount de Tocqueville.
Sent in 1831 by the French Government to tour American prisons, Tocqueville spent nine months discovering how life in the United States worked, and why it worked so well.
Over 800 pages, it’s a commitment if you plan to go cover to cover, but if done in drips of a chapter here or there, ultimately you’ll be better for the read.
Pick up your copy here or from our side margin, and let us know what you think down in the comments.
