IS THE AMERICAN DREAM STILL ALIVE? Bob Russell wrote this book to celebrate our free market economy and to honor those who have achieved The American Dream. This book includes the inspirational life stories of 17 of his friends who achieved their dreams and financial independence through owning a small business. These life stories are the pride and hope of America. The hardships and difficulties that some people had to overcome in order to become successful is amazing. These entrepreneurs had the vision, determination and intelligence to succeed and provide products or services which created jobs. This free market competition results in improved products or services and reduced prices, thus improving all our lives.

Everyone seems to have their own idea of exactly what The American Dream is, but most believe it is the ability to achieve their goals and do as well or better financially than their parents. There has been a lot of discussion recently about whether The American Dream is dead or achievable.

In this book, the author shows that The Dream is not dead even though government regulations and taxes have made it more difficult to achieve. Russell feels that by turning the free market loose our national economy will expand resulting in more people realizing The American Dream.
