For example, Rivian’s mission statement is “If our planet is to continue to sustain life and enchant future generations, we must change……This is where Rivian’s potential lies.

Students who do not learn to read proficiently by third grade have difficulty catching up and are four times less likely to graduate from high school. We've eliminated diseases, helped to get the AIDS epidemic under control, and made great strides in cutting poverty. Men’s share of college enrollment has dropped from 60% in 1970 to 40% in 2021 creating a path to broke and lonely males.President Clinton famously said, “There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America. As a result, he added, people over the age of 70 have become on average 72% wealthier while people under the age of 40 have become on average 22% less wealthy in the last 40 years. The book is a great summary of where the country is today, as compared to the past or to other countries or comparative technologies, or, or, or!

This should just be a 3-bar bar graph, perhaps with some mechanism to clearly show how miniscule the second two are. Maybe it's because I'm a control freak, but I hate going into a book expecting one thing and getting another; it makes me feel a loss of control.Adrift (2022) argues that the United States is flailing, despite all its success and global dominance since World War II. For example, during the COVID-19 pandemic, with all kinds of job loss, we also saw a rise in business applications as people innovated and adapted. We've got stuff like a massive drop in infant mortality, lowest poverty levels in ages, crime rates going down, and huge wins in preventing disease.

Each synopsis comes with my comprehensive, multi-page synopsis handout, plus the audio recording of my presentation delivered at the First Friday Book Synopsis in Dallas. It started to seem like the whole purpose of the book was to convince Americans that immigration is a good thing (which it is, though obviously not so much for the suffering people who must flee their homes and come to a country where half of us despise them). But, and it's a big but, this book feels like Galloway's on a hellbent mission to show just how messed up the world can be.While I myself am so far Left I could almost fall off, I appreciate a non-biased view when looking at something like this.
