This is a collection of essays/articles written by the author between 2012 and 2014 and has been available as an e-book for a while now. Sarah Kendzior does a much better job than J.D. Vance of laying out the landscape of "how did we get here?" While Vance explores one facet of "the problem" and is more a tribute to his family as a memoir, Kendzior peels back the layers like and onion and relates each set of issues to the other presenting a broader view. The first few sections come off of as something that one may write in a reflective journal. Latter sections see much better analysis of the issues. Sections on higher education and media shine. If you like Kendzior's writing, more recent samples of her writing are referenced on her Twitter feed and offer more immediate consumption.
