NEW YORK TIMES columnist Frank Bruni narrates his persuasive examination of the outrage that currently dominates American discourse with a tone of authority underlying his overall conversational delivery. Bruni's astute observations have a mix of gravitas and wit that keeps this topic from feeling quite so oppressive. His personal and political beliefs collide when he awakens one morning with a sudden loss of sight and seeks to avoid an unconstructive path to victimhood amid the seductiveness of grudges, complaints, and grievances that surround him. Largely focused on the political right, this work, nevertheless, finds similarities on the left. The combination will convince listeners that the condition lurks everywhere. Bruni's wide-ranging research includes blame games, the symbology of zombies, and the "envy engine" of wealth. Sadly, suggestions for change are less abundant.
