Last year I spent the better part of a year trying to get a book read. It wasn't that it was boring, because it actually was very interesting. I just kept getting assignments to read other books for my writing class, so this book had to be repeatedly set aside. I am happy to tell you, though, that earlier this evening I finally finished it.
This is a really good, and well planned book. It's non-fiction, written by David Walker, who used to be the U.S. Comptroller General. That means he was our nation's accountant. And he's talking about the fiscal mess our country is in right now, and what really needs to happen to fix it.
It's not sugar coated, and it's not "politically correct" towards the two major parties. He's an independent who wants to see this country become the beacon to the rest of the world that it used to be, but has since lost it's way.

You can read an excerpt from the book on the Random House website.
This is definitely a must read book, particularly if you happen to agree with the Tea Party movement.
