Through music, film, literature, TV and even through the food we eat and the clothes that we wear we all have a highly developed sense of what America is and through our shared, tangled history we claim a special relationship. But America today feels about as alien a country as you could imagine. It is fearful, angry and impatient for change. Reflecting on his journey across the continent to cover the most turbulent race in recent history, Jon Sopel lifts a lid on the seething resentments, profound anxieties and sheer rage that found its embodiment in a brash, unpredictable and seemingly unstoppable figure.
In this fascinating, insightful portrait of American life and politics, Jon sets out to answer our questions about a country that once stood for the grandest of dreams but which is now mired in a storm of political extremism, racial division and increasingly perverse beliefs.

Brilliant, entertaining and superb
Jon manages to assess and examine contemporary America, and Americans - including those who supported Trump - fairly and objectively. And he does so in an extremely entertaining, thought provoking, scary, eye-opening and balanced way, establishing the whys and wherefores of where our friends across the Pond are in their minds. It's a superb and brilliant read. Or as we say in Welsh "ardderchog" (excellent) 👏 I thoroughly recommend it!!

I really liked this book and listened to it all in just a few days. I usually dip in and out of different books but this one really held my attention. Lots of interesting information and ideas. It gave me a much deeper understanding of familiar issues. Although I already knew America was very differen to Britain it was amazing to get an insiders perspective of just how different it is. I definitely recommend this book.
