What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Elliot Kirschner, Dan Rather

Narrated By: Dan Rather

Date: November 2017

Duration: 7 hours 5 minutes

Summary:

In a collection of original essays, the venerated television journalist, Dan Rather, celebrates our shared values and what matters most in our great country, and shows us what patriotism looks like. Writing about the institutions that sustain us, such as public libraries, public schools, and national parks; the values that have transformed us, such as the struggle for civil rights; and the drive toward science and innovation that has made the United States great, Rather will bring to bear his decades of experience on the frontlines of the world's biggest stories, and offer readers a way forward.

After a career spent as reporter and anchor for CBS News, where he interviewed every living President since Eisenhower and was on the ground for every major event, from the assassination of John F. Kennedy to Watergate to 9/11, Rather has also become a hugely popular voice of reason on social media, with nearly two million Facebook followers and an engaged new audience who help to make many of his posts go viral. With his famously plainspoken voice and a fundamental sense of hope, Rather has written the book to inspire conversation and listening, and to remind us all how we are ultimately united.

Genres:

  • P Jones

    Love the history discussion and conclusion, completely agree we could be more united! Did not appreciate some of the media bias and political party bashing that occurred. The only way for us to become united it to accept everyone as having something to contribute, regardless of your political or media interests.

  • Carol M.

    Educational, inspirational, and hopeful. And listening to Dan Rather share it made it priceless.

  • Matthew K.

    The narrator is terribly quiet. The book itself does not really talk about what unites anyone, except for perhaps progressive politics. This book promised to get to the bottom of what unites Americans as Americans, but repeatedly blamed only one particular party for all of the problems present in America, and ignored problems on both sides of the aisle.
