The malaises of today's life—exacerbated by the current financial crisis and recession—are the subject of this brief essay by novelist and radio host Kurt Andersen. Pointing out what went wrong, and how we can press the "reset" button to reboot our ideals and politics, Andersen mildly rants against greed and infantilism, and gives suggestions for improving ourselves and our world by rising from the ashes of the recently burst bubbles. Andersen reads his own book in a conversational tone, much as he does on his radio shows, lending an intimate nature to this book. Unlike many author-narrated books, RESET blends words and voice perfectly, with ideal pacing and tone, to make this a very enjoyable read.
