If you're feeling lousy and you read this book, it awakens you to things that have made you happy in your life. It reminds you of a time when certain things ideas, gestures got you through. [Let's Bring Back] promotes and revels in an idea of life that s lived in 3-D, not 2-D, a life lived civicly and civil-y. And that is a very wonderful thing.
