Betting on America places the events of 9-11 in deep historical context, offering a thoughtful, realistic, and ultimately optimistic vision of AmericaÕs new future. The authors examine the long-term impact of 9-11 at every level, from our most private personal relationships, to our most crucial business decisions, to the choices we make as a society. They find in American history one overriding lesson: when we have been challenged, we have discovered deeper strengths and achieved more greatness than we had ever imagined possible.
