Superficial review of the songs that influenced America from the revolution to the present. I was frustrated reading it that there were no accompanying audio files of songs I wasn't familiar with, I checked the website for the book and found nothing. Regardless, there were some interesting facts here and there and some insight into the long history of music supporting causes in both right and left wing America. The book ends with a look at current songs that show our divisions focusing on Born in the USA by Bruce Springsteen and God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood. If you are interested in the topic, it is a worthwhile read.
