Bestselling Author Releases Book On Our Broken Nation & How To Fix It

America is more fractured than ever before. Its very fabric seems to be unraveling! With the federal elections around the corner, it is more critical than ever before to return to wisdom and civility, and to select leaders who will mend the rifts, not widen the divide.  

“Between the media and the general discourse of the public, it has become impossible to disagree in a civil manner,” said bestselling author Jim White, PhD, in his newest book, BROKEN AMERICA: Ten Guiding Principles to Restore America. “Rather than heal the wounds, current political leadership on both sides of the aisle is causing more distrust.”

In a sorely needed treatise on how to rejuvenate our nation, BROKEN AMERICA sets forth a guide for healing: by returning to the values of the Constitution and the texts and teachings of the Founding Fathers and Mothers. 

“There are ten guiding principles that reflect the values of our Founding Fathers. These principles will bring our nation back on course,” White said. “Regardless of which party readers belong to, this book provides the questions all patriotic Americans should be asking as they head to the voting booth.”

Among the principles laid out in the book are Truth-Seeking, Respect, Patriotism, Tolerance and Equality, Vision, and others. Readers will find concrete examples of past and present world leaders who embody these necessary political leadership criteria… and those who don’t.

“Our democracy is largely dysfunctional today because of the deep polarization and divisions between the political parties. The failure of leadership at the highest levels to follow the basic values and principles that our Founding Fathers believed   were essential to governing has put the future of the nation at risk,” said Leon Panetta, Former Secretary of Defense and Director of the CIA. “Dr. Jim White in his book, Broken America, tries to address these problems by outlining ten principles critical to restoring America. This is a book for all Americans who care about the future of our country.”

Columbia University Professor of Political Science and International and Public Affairs Robert Shapiro called the book “a quick and engaging read on the near existential question in the nation today: how to end its current vicious and emotion-filled partisan conflict that has had dire consequences for the nation. The author’s guiding principles are on target but most important is his call for agency: American leaders and the American public need to change course–this is solely in their hands.” 

“My book releases September 9… just two days before September 11, one of the darkest days in American history but also a day that marked a turning point for Americans coming together in mutual support and cooperation. I hope my book helps us get back to that level of patriotism,” White added.

 Dr. Jim White is an industrialist, a Vietnam veteran, and the Founder and CEO of 13 different companies. Over his lifetime he has bought and sold 23 companies operating in 44 countries, and is known internationally for his long history of ethical and effective business leadership. In BROKEN AMERICA, White shows how the building blocks of business leadership can translate into political success using techniques such as relationship building and negotiation. 

BROKEN AMERICA launches September 9, 2020. Advance Review Copies are available upon request. Jim White is also available for interview or to write exclusive articles.
