Book summary

America is out of control. It's a place where celebrity worship achieves a religious fervor, where cult prophets lead their followers to take up arms or sacrifice themselves in mass suicides, where the media are churned up by one feeding frenzy after another. To many, contemporary America seems like an infernal carnival, equal parts fun house and madhouse. [via]
