9780762108299: For America

These are challenging times for America, and painful times for Americans. It's been years since the public mood has been so dour, the sense of hope for our future so restrained. And yet...this is America. At our core we are a resilient and optimistic nation.

Organized in 8 sections-Community, Children, Citizenship, Values, Charity, Environment, Everyday Living, and The World-this powerful motivational book contains more than 120 simple actions every American can take to make our country a better place, including:

__Simple solutions such as recycling, voting, and volunteering
__Promoting U.S. businesses by buying locally grown produce and supporting community merchants
__Returning to old-fashioned values-politeness, respect, tolerance, and optimism

Small enough to fit in your pocket, this is the perfect motivational gift book to get America on track once again.

From Publishers Weekly:

With forewords by both George H. W. Bush and Bill Clinton, professor and activist Zimmerman presnts a bubbly citizen's guide to strengthening the United States. She presents Americans with more than 70 ways to incorporate acts of self-improvement, charity, environmentalism, tolerance and patriotism into their everyday lives. As the book's dual introductions would suggest, Zimmerman encourages readers to "Wear purple on election day," while focusing energy on non-partisan methods of bettering their country, such as donating used books, supporting the symphony, familiarizing oneself with local leaders and hosting an exchange student. Zimmerman acknowledges that Americans are "busy," and her short, bullet-pointed chapters encourage everything from eating at an ethnic restaurant ("an easy, positive first step toward more understanding") to mentoring a child ("one of the best ways to help direct children ... toward a better future") with equal enthusiasm. While some of her suggestions (learning CPR, drinking less) seem more practical than patriotic, Zimmerman's guide, which provides readers with lists of helpful organizations and websites, is a good resource for any citizen looking to get involved in their community, combat negative international perceptions of Americans or even improve their family life.
