I recommend this book highly. (I try to give five stars to only a small percentage of the books I read, so don't be put off by four stars. Here, they say this book is one to definitely consider, especially in this election year.)

The first two chapters read rather like platitudes to me, but by the time I got into the third chapter, my own reaction was that the writing had more depth than just good feel ideas. I have been participating in a discussion group reading the book and we have had deeply exploring discussions provoked by what Palmer says here. (At least one other person in our group has had similar reactions to mine; the remainder seemed satisfied from the get go.)
