The Second American Revolution: The People's Plan for Fixing America-Before Its Too Late

James Patterson, Author, Peter Kim, With William Morrow & Company $25 (285p) ISBN 978-0-688-11730-6
Based on a sampling of 1000 adult Americans--Patterson and Kim listen to ``voices, not numbers''--this survey by the two advertising executives who coauthored The Day America Told the Truth is perforce superficial. In defining popular concerns they break no new ground: the dearth of leaders, declining schools, unsafe neighborhoods, poor health care, ailing economy and scourge of drugs. The authors assert that the public backs supply-side economics and that a vast majority of Americans want school choice, including a voucher plan, and a national curriculum. Although the survey respondents support abortion and gun control, they also favor mandatory prison sentences and capital punishment. Author tour. (Sept.)
