In this era of hyper-partisanship, it is helpful to review the values that unite us. Veteran newscaster Dan Rather does just that in this audiobook, exploring themes such as community, patriotism, and immigration. At the heart of it all is empathy, which Rather says is clearly lacking in many national leaders. Not surprisingly, given his TV background, Rather offers a smooth, easy-on-the-ears reading. Because he cares so deeply about his subject and because portions of his book are highly personal, there is an undertone of emotion in his delivery. That emotion never rises to the level of stridency, and the control he demonstrates adds even more power to his reading. R.C.G.
