520 . ‡aStriking it rich is among the most resilient of American fantasies; we dream of the jackpot, the life-altering payday, in whatever form that takes. But rarely do we follow the fantasy to its conclusion: to ponder the social, psychological, and societal downsides of great affluence and the fact that so few possess it. Featuring dozens of interviews with fortunate citizens, Mechanic shares a compassionate, character-rich, perversely humorous, and ultimately troubling journey into the American wealth fantasy and where it has taken us. -- adapted from jacket
