Mini Review: The Soul of America by Jon Meacham



The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels by Jon Meacham


4.5*****


The Soul of America is is my first book by Jon Meacham, but it certainly won't be my last. He has a measured, thoughtful and thought-provoking way of presenting history and connecting past and present in an accessible manner. This is a great overview of the political history of the US, in the context of the presidency. It is especially timely in this deeply polarized age and surprisingly left me with a sense of hope for the future. Recommended!
