Reviews of my upcoming book American Pilgrim will go here.
You're a fast reader.Having followed the video series and attended two of the events detailed, I was pleased to find that this book was more than just an extended play-by-play of the tour. It is that of course. However, the real meat of the book was Roosh's deeper reflections on both his personal journey and the state of our nation.
Roosh takes passing moments from the travel vlogs and expands upon them in an edifying way that makes it well worth the read even for those familiar with the tour. For example, I remember well Roosh's genuine bemusement when Dr. Jones shot down his cabin idea. It is interesting to see which ideas like that stuck with him, and to see them fleshed out.
Despite the serious topic, Roosh's wry humour shines through and it is a very enjoyable read.
A bit of housekeeping:
p. 299 - The phrase "lower backache" is used. I'm guessing it autocorrected from back ache.
pp. 182, 183 - "ax" is used instead of "axe". I know this is a stylistic choice, but I find ax to be jarring and brutalist. The AP style of unnecessarily shortening words in American English is not to my liking.
p. 183 - The word Pug isn't capitalized. Again, I know this is AP style. However, many style guides disagree as well as the AKC (American Kennel Club) registry of breeds.
p. 209 - Golden Retriever (see above).
If just one sentence of this book brings you closer to God, it is more valuable than all my previous writing put together.

Thing is, the new version was released so late (2008) that most of the first buyers were boomers who remembered the original. Younger buyers didn't really get it. But it's since caught on with a new audience and still lives. A true MAGA mobile, if ever there was one.Dodge Challenger is one of the few cars made since... 1997? that has any kind of allure, that looks like something other than your typical blob sedan.
