This was very good, but it was also very dense and very long and a bit boring. It’s absolutely worth skimming so if you get a bleary from the sheer amount of information here don’t worry. It inspired me to start bringing a pack of playing cards wherever I go now, and I’m hosting a group of strangers next week to play old card games, so thanks Mr. Putnam—I am indeed becoming more happy.

Looking at American life over the last 120 years ago and finding similar patterns of individualism vs mutualism in many different areas of life. I’m not fully convinced by all the graphs and data but it is certainly interesting to think about. Book was sometimes a bit tedious but it was intriguing to see US history through this lens.
