Angry, bored, and confused--three words that aptly describe the typical American's view toward the world of politics. But it doesn't have to stay this way, argues Michael Kryzanek, in "Angry, Bored, Confused." Kryzanek discusses issues central to American politics--citizenship, power, leadership, problem solving, initiating change--through a series of straightforward questions, with sometimes surprising answers. "Angry, Bored, and Confused" examines American politics from the perspective of an anxious consumer seeking to understand the political world, and to change it for the better.
