Summary, etc.:
"If the true test of a great country is its capacity for self-renewal, the United States of America stands apart. Throughout its history, when many heralded its decline, America overcame its circumstances and forged a better future. Following the Great Depression and World War II, the United States helped shape a world of unprecedented peace and prosperity. When the launch of Sputnik signaled the Soviet Union outpacing American ingenuity, we put a man on the moon. We overcame the malaise of the 1970s to bring the Cold War to a peaceful conclusion and became the singular global power. National renewal in the face of exigent circumstances and self-doubt is an American tradition. Are we still up to the task during these tumultuous times? No one is better qualified to answer this question than David McCormick, the conservative leader and who served as CEO of Bridgewater Associates. McCormick argues America's path forward is treacherous and uncertain and will undoubtedly test our resilience and place in the world. But through a relentless commitment to innovation, McCormick explains, America's best days are ahead of us"-- Provided by publisher.
