America: We Have the Country We Want, by Mark Mullen, is a composite of issues about which the author has the right to observe, question, complain, and give his well informed opinions. Sometimes he does this giving honest parting shots with a sense of humor that will leave you chuckling. While covering many touchy subjects that most people tend to shy away from, he reveals the truths about Wall street, business, CEOs and taxation. Should religion be allowed back in our schools? Is the government really borrowing from our social security benefits? Is the US dollar on the verge of losing its status as being the world reserve currency? The answers to these questions are in this information filled book that every American should own.

Mr. Mullen has really done his homework to be able to back up everything he talks about, especially because his facts, figures and references are all well documented. He touches on the subjects of parenting, the social media, and the right to bear arms. I was drawn to this work with interest, because I have learned not be skeptical when it comes to these subjects. Mark writes with a style that drew me in, like getting advice from your favorite uncle or grandfather, and he kept me from putting the book down. America: We Have the Country We Want is smart, witty and filled with information worthy of the patriotic conversations of our forefathers. Open your eyes. America: We Have the Country We Want will light a spark of patriotism in you.

In his book, America: We Have The Country We Want, Mark Mullen gives a citizen’s view of hot American topics, including: business, education, society in general, religion, guns, the media, etc. In each subject, Mullen begins by presenting a common view (i.e., our public schools are failing American children) and then goes on to present different facts and angles to give the reader better knowledge in that area. He also includes his personal viewpoint, often in tongue-in-cheek ways. Mullen comes from a conservative, Christian standpoint, but does not show unwarranted bias against other perspectives (unlike some from that field).

I really enjoyed reading Mark Mullen’s book, America: We Have The Country We Want. I came to the subject with some interest and knowledge, but walked away feeling well-informed, refreshed, and more likely to read about such matters in the future. I appreciated that Mullen had solid facts to back up his thoughts on different matters. The topics of business and taxes especially interested me. My husband is a small business owner, so I know a little about the ins and outs of some things, but the information presented in this book deepened my knowledge of such matters. I really enjoy when I walk away from a book feeling like I could have a more intellectual conversation on the subject than before I read it. And Mullen’s book did just that for me. Highly recommended to all – but conservative Christians will find it especially satisfying and useful. Great for teens and up!
