iDreamBooks' Rating: 73% (Read Reviews)

A timely collection of speeches by David McCullough, the most honored historian in the United States—winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, two National Book Awards, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, among many others—that reminds us of fundamental American principles.Over the course of his distinguished career, David McCullough has spoken before Congress, the White House, colleges and universities, historical societies, and other esteemed institutions. Now, at a time of self-reflection in America following a bitter election campaign that has left the country divided, McCullough has collected some of his most important speeches in a brief volume designed to identify important principles and characteristics that are particularly American. The American Spirit reminds us of core American values to which we all subscribe, regardless of which region we live in, which political party we identify with, or our ethnic background. This is a book about America for all Americans that reminds us who we are and helps to guide us as we find our way forward.

NPR: Positive
His faith in the country is touching, and this book is a gift (and not just a last-minute one for your nephew, either).
Christian Science Monitor: Positive
Happily, the same qualities that inform McCullough’s histories and biographies also shape his speeches. He is, whether at his desk or a lectern, a consummate storyteller...
Washington Independent Review of Books: Negative
McCullough’s new book, The American Spirit: Who We Are and What We Stand For, is a compendium of 15 speeches delivered at college and university graduations, to Congress, and at the White House between 1989 and 2016.
My San Antonio: Positive
It is often said that a speaker should know his audience. By the time readers finish “The American Spirit,” they should know McCullough.

Very few among us possess the encompassing and informed perspective on America’s past and present that historian and best-selling author McCullough has gained over decades of research.
