Fantasyland: How America Went Haywire: A 500-Year History Kindle Edition
This is an important book - the indispensable book - for understanding America in the age of Trump. It’s an eye-opening history filled with brilliant insights, a saga of how we were always susceptible to fantasy, from the Puritan fanatics to the talk-radio and Internet wackos who mix show business, hucksterism, and conspiracy theories. -- Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs
Fantasyland presents the very best kind of idea – one that, in retrospect, seems obvious, but which took a seer like Kurt Andersen to piece together. The thinking and the writing are both dazzling; it is at once a history lesson and an oh-so-modern cri de coeur; it’s an absolute joy to read, and will leave your brain dancing with excitement long after you’re done -- Stephen Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics
An absorbing, must-read polemic. ― Newsday
The most important book that I have read this year. -- Lawrence O'Donnell ― The Last Word, MSNBC
I’ve never read a history book that is as insightful and at the same time as funny as this one. -- Steven Johnson
This is a blockbuster of a book. Kurt Andersen is a dazzling writer and a perceptive student of the many layers of American life. Take a deep breath and dive in. -- Tom Brokaw
Riveting…hugely entertaining. -- Francis Wheen ― Mail on Sunday
Charged with enough anger and wit to become necessary reading. ― Observer --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
