I'm not sure how his head didn't explode from cognitive dissonance as he wrote this book. I am well over half-way done, and I'm trying to connect my own experiences with politics (beginning in the late 70s during the Carter era) to his writing. I can't. I realize that he's focussed on Populism, but heck no.

To the extent that Thomas Frank doesn't scruple to gore sacred cows, He is the H.L. Mencken of our time. I particularly appreciate his criticism of the boundless optimism--and therefore boundless myopia--of the tech sector of our culture and economy. Maybe, just maybe, apps really haven't made out lives all that much better. To put it another way, the Uber app has mades its authors' lives better, but not the lives of the taxi drivers whose livelihoods it has disrupted and whom it may well impoverish.

Like Mencken, Mr. Frank is a superb stylist. I just wish he--and the rest of the world--would refrain from using the noun "reference" as a verb.
