Review:

Charles Murray's In Pursuit of Happiness and Good Government raises fundamental issues. What is government's role in our lives? Do the solutions to some of our society's most persistent problems lie in the natural responses of individuals or in massive government efforts? Charles Murray lays out a bold plan for how we can all reconnect with our families our neighborhoods, and our communities, and can determine the role government should play in our lives. In his entertaining, readable style, Murray articulates a precise and revolutionary concept - that "the pursuit of happiness" is not just some vague platitude, but the cornerstone of human existence and the central justification of government.
