The time has come - with the Bush presidency over - for a new appreciation of what makes America tick. Have a Nice Day does not shy away from the crazy preachers, the guns, and the continuing racial divisions. But it puts the rough edges of American life in context - geographical and intellectual.

MEDIA REVIEWS
" - the literary equivalent of cracking open a six pack of Budweiser and arguing late into the night - " James Robinson, The Observer "Not since Charles Wheeler has the BBC had as fine an American correspondent. His perceptive reporting has been a joy." The Times "With his forensic examination of America, and more importantly of Americans, Justin Webb represents 21st-century proof that no-one understands the world so adroitly as the Englishman abroad." Simon Calder, Travel Editor, The Independent "This is not a dry sociological account but a passionate defence of a way of life... Webb is good at shedding light on our ambivalent and contradictory relationship with American power and culture." The Sunday Times "Written in a breezy, engaging and often humorous style, Webb's smartly reported book reveals him to be curious, thorough and generous of spirit... A book full of insight and heart." Sarah Lyall, The Daily Mail "If you want to know what makes Americans tick, read this book. Webb knows America - and it shows." John Humphreys
