“It’s the end of the world as we’ve known it,” Kurt Andersen writes in Reset, “but it isn’t the end of the world.” In this smart and refreshingly hopeful book, Andersen–a brilliant analyst and synthesizer of historical and cultural trends, explains why the current economic crisis is actually an historic moment of great opportunity to get ourselves and the nation back on track.

“In this provocative and insightful book Kurt Andersen has given us a blueprint for what can be a new way of seeing America as a land of opportunity and sound values.”

–Tom Brokaw
