Description:

When did the Age of Reason morph into the Age of Emotion? In a pointed critique of Malcolm Gladwell's bestsellerBlink, Michael R. LeGault mourns the lost art of sharp, incisive thinking in all areas of American life -- and challenges us to reverse the downward spiral of poor decision making that costs time, money, jobs, and lives in the twentyfirst century. What factors are destroying the traditional American "can do" mind-set? From preventable disasters, such as the response at all levels to Hurricane Katrina, to the corrosive effects of pervasive commercialism, permissive parenting, political correctness, and a culture of image, LeGault delivers a bracing wake-up call for saving American civilization. Has your mind been fed intellectual junk food? Americans are abundantly gifted with the ability to lead an intellectual life, and this bold, controversial, and objective analysis offers viable solutions to fulfilling our greatest potential now -- because a mind truly is a terrible thing to waste. It's time to wake up, America. It's time to THINK!
