“I Think We Survived the Nightmare” is a kind of history of the first decade of the twenty-first century in the form of 112 in-depth reviews of best sellers and other books from the era of delusion and deficit, replete with misadventures overseas and rampant cronyism and corruption at home. The first chapter concentrates on books about the many stupidities of the George W. Bush, chronicling according to reviewer extraordinaire Dennis Littrell, “How We Got into This Mess” and why. The second chapter focuses on books about the Middle East, particularly its political history, and then on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, or, as Littrell puts it, “How to Pour a Trillion Dollars into the Iraqi Sand, Bankrupt the Treasury, and Laugh All the Way to the Crawford Ranch.” The third chapter delineates the nature of "homo rethuglicon," a kind of crocodile in elephant skin who passionately believes in ignorance and hypocrisy and that “Fair and Balanced Is for Wimps.” Chapters 4, 5 and 6 are about capitalistic democracy, the cultural wars in America, the coming crisis in energy, food and water as well as the threats posed by climate change and nasty pollution. Littrell writes in a lively, often satirical style that stings his targets and delights his readers, but most significantly, his reviews inform. Don’t miss this book!
