    1. I am a Ratzenberger fan and greatly enjoy his work, particularly for his show "Made In America." The first few chapters of this book had me hooked, but the farther in I got, the less I cared about certain topics. I was hoping more of the book would discuss the plight of the blue-collar worker and the things that America used to be proud of. Yes, those topics were there, but Ratzenberger tended to wander off into topics such as the war in Iraq and politics--topics I could have done without and, t [...]

    2. I found this book at a tag sale next to a local park one morning. I'm really glad I found it there because he touches on some very important topics in this book. I didn't get a chance to watch his made in America show but i'm going to take a look on youtube or even purchase the DVD's if they are available. I don't agree 100% with every chapter in the book. (regarding everything he wrote about the Iraq war or the topic of animals rights) since I'm a vegetarian I take a different view but I tend t [...]

    3. I loved his storytelling abilities and the stories themselves. Concerning his viewpoint on lifeI found myself agreeing with almost everything he had to say about political correctness and how the media warps reality. However, I wish he had offered a few ideas on how to solve some of the problems of modern day life he mentionsch as the cheap prices expected by consumers and short term profits demanded by investors vs. getting our manufacturing industry back on track again and providing good payin [...]

    4. Its alright. He just shows interesting viewpoints on the working class and where we stand as a country. Its cool to read a different viewpoint then what I usally read. He does not like rap music at all which I find a bit ignorant, but I'm not going to lose sleep on it. You can't hate on Cliff the mailman.

    5. I was hoping this book would feature more of the type of companies celebrated in the Made in America TV show, but it was more his own philosophy and politics. Still a decent spree, but not really what I was looking for.
