I had to read this for a class at my University. It's incredibly outdated, has a lot of superfluous information, and taught me nothing even remotely relevant to day-to-day life in 2013.

solid quote from it, amazing book: “Tocqueville saw a variety of unique features in American democracy, especially what he called equality of condition and, famously, individualism…he worried about the consequences of the tendency toward individualism…individualism that Tocqueville warned is the Achilles heel of the American experiment. As he described it, ‘Each one of them [the citizens], withdrawn into himself, is almost unaware of the fate of the rest. Mankind, for him, consists in his children and his personal friends. As for the rest of his fellow citizens, they are nothing.’ ” (page ix)
