The Jerry Doyle Show is the seventh largest syndicated radio show in the country with affiliates in 240 markets reaching 3.5 million listeners each week. From his childhood in Flatbush, Brooklyn, his career in aviation, to his time on Wall Street and departure to Los Angeles to become one of the lead actors on the Emmy Award-winning hit show Babylon 5, then stepping into the political arena as the Hollywood Republican Nominee for Congress in the 2000 election, and now as a talk radio host, Jerry Doyle’s experiences from career to career and coast to coast have molded his political opinions and made him one of the most popular radio hosts in the country. Now, with Have You Seen My Country Lately?, Doyle tackles the tough political issues our country is facing with his independent views and trademark wit.Doyle addresses what needs to be done to get America back on the road to liberty and prosperity. The book explores the financial crisis, analyzing the anatomy of an auto industry takeover, exploring American sovereignty, and the 1960s radical politics that are alive and well in our government today. Using humorous anecdotes from his colorful life, Have You Seen My Country Lately ? features chapters, “Smoke for the Children,” “Economic Fascism,” “TARP This,” “Drain the Political Swamp,” and “You’re Not Someone Special.” Doyle delves into the absurdity of government policies, while bringing key issues to light and offering his solutions on how we can bring about the changes we really need.

Renowned historian and engineer Henry Petroski explores the past, present, and future of America's crumbling infrastructure.Physical infrastructure in the United States is crumbling. The American Society of Civil Engineers has, in its latest report, given American roads and bridges a grade of D and C+, respectively, and has described roughly sixty-five thousand bridges in the United States as "structurally deficient." This crisis--and one need look no further than the I-35W bridge collapse in Minnesota to see that it is indeed a crisis--shows little sign of abating short of a massive change in attitude amongst politicians and the American public. In The Road Taken, acclaimed historian Henry Petroski explores our core infrastructure from historical and contemporary perspectives and explains how essential their maintenance is to America’s economic health. Recounting the long history behind America’s highway system, Petroski reveals the genesis of our interstate numbering system (even roads go east-west, odd go north-south), the inspiration behind the center line that has divided roads for decades, and the creation of such taken-for-granted objects as guardrails, stop signs, and traffic lights--all crucial parts of our national and local infrastructure. His history of the rebuilding of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge reveals the complex and challenging interplay between government and industry inherent in the conception, funding, design, and building of major infrastructure projects, while his forensic analysis of the street he lives on--its potholes, gutters, and curbs--will engage homeowners everywhere. A compelling work of history, The Road Taken is also an urgent clarion call aimed at American citizens, politicians, and anyone with a vested interest in our economic well-being. The road we take in the next decade toward rebuilding our aging infrastructure will in large part determine our future national prosperity.
