Title Synopsis:

Is America as divided as it seems? As a graduate student at Oxford, Ryan Bernsten undertook a 23,000-mile journey through all 50 states to look beyond the news cycles and see his home country from the ground. Following in the footsteps of Alexis de Tocqueville, Bernsten leads with the desire to listen and find common humanity in Americans he meets across the country.  Bernsten ultimately offers a hopeful vision for the future of America, as he embarks on a search for meaning and reflects on what it means to be American. This book is a companion to the podcast 50 States of Mind which showcases interviews from the journey and is available on all podcast platforms.

    A passionate description of our country during tumultuous political times, exposing a new generation’s experience of trying to understand the USA. Detailed stories of Ryan’s sometimes hilarious and sometimes horrific journey through America. Highly recommended!
