In Real Common Sense, award-winning public radio host Brian Kahn faces up to America’s critical problems—and then shows how the principles and values of America’s Founders can provide the moral compass we need to turn things around. In easy-to-read, common sense language, he shows how we have gone off course as a country, emphasizing consumerism over citizenship, entertainment over education, “me” over “we”. By reconnecting with our founding American principles, he argues, we can create a future worthy of our grandchildren. Brian Kahn is host of the award–winning public radio program Home Ground and is the recipient of the 2009 Montana Governor's Award for the Humanities and the Chevron Conservation Award. He has been published in the Los Angeles Times, The Nation, and Field & Stream. He has worked as a ranch hand, boxing coach, lawyer, conservationist, and journalist, and lives in Montana. -- From publisher description.
