by Kurt Andersen
There are a lot of books out right now asking “How did we get here”, to a time of alternative facts and magical thinking? Rather than posit this has been a recent decline (like Thomas Nichols’ The End of Expertise), Andersen has a different view: America has ALWAYS been this way. From the rumors of America as a “promised” land to the “Satanic Panic” of the 80’s to now, Andersen shows you the history of America’s relationship with magical thinking and the irrational. It’s a funny, enlightening, and maddening read.
