Book Review: Willing America Right

A very good review by Elizabeth Scalia

Marking each chapter of George Will's latest book, One Man's America: The Pleasures and Provocations of Our Singular Nation, is a simple graphic of the sort of round, wire-rimmed glasses that are as recognizable to Will as was the plain black suit and slim tie to Albert Einstein.

The graphic is charming and also definitive. The glasses illustrate both Will's erudition and the laser-like focus that he brings to bear on any particular topic, be it politics, society, education, books, baseball, or intelligent design; a focus that seems to burn away distracting edges to present a refined and exacting perspective.
