Summary
On the morning after the 2016 presidential election, Thomas Ricks awoke with a few questions on his mind: What kind of nation is this? Is it what was designed or intended by the nation's founders? Trying to get as close to the source as he could, Ricks decided to go back and read the philosophy and literature that shaped the founders' thinking, and the letters they wrote to each other debating these crucial works, among them the Iliad, Plutarch's Lives, and the works of Xenophon, Epicurus, Aristotle, Cato, and Cicero. For though much attention has been paid the influence of English political philosophers. It follows four members of the Revolutionary generation from their youths to their adult lives, as they grappled with questions of independence, and forming and keeping a new nation. In doing so, Ricks interprets not only the effect of the ancient world on each man, and how that shaped our constitution and government, but offers startling new insights into these legendary leaders.

Summary
"Comedian and "Live from Here" head writer Tom Papa, author of Your Dad Stole My Rake, tackles the modern condition in a warm (and clean) group of short essays. Exploring his favorite topics-how people really live in modern America and what's truly good and wonderful about our lives-You're Doing Great features 75 quick-take essays, including: You Don't Have to Live Your Best Life Don't Open the Mail I'm So Baked I'm Going to Mars-If My Wife Will Let Me Don't Go Tubing Shut Up and Eat From You're Doing Great: Life isn't perfect. As these pages will show, my life is far from perfect. There have always been problems and there always will be. You can engage politically, you can fight for the things you believe in, you can work really, really hard, but you shouldn't lose track of the fact that while we're doing all that, life is flying by at lightning fast speed. We live in an amazing time filled with airplanes, scooters, and peanut butter cups. We have air conditioning, blenders, and martini shakers. It's time to refocus, enjoy it all, and realize that you're doing great"-- Provided by publisher.
