  An American Life, Living the Dream , 05/02/2006
Reviewer: Colleen Glastetter
I bought and read this book today. It hooked me quickly in the first chapter. I laughed out loud as he confessed some childhood mistakes. Marty Faulk writes concise, thoughtful, with practical but not preachy advice. It's well written.

  Average is pushing it , 10/12/2006
Reviewer: Paula Schorr
Obviously the events and people mentioned in this book are important to the author. The trick, of course, is to write about them in such a way as to make them interesting to the reader. Unfortunately, 'American Dream' falls short in accomplishing this and there is little to find in this book other than some simple insights into some rather ordinary events. Other than a few endearing passages about marriage, I found very little material in this book that was thought provoking or interesting. Bottom line: there are far better reads out there for the money.

  Bland . . . poorly written , 10/12/2006
Reviewer: Ken F
Reading the two good reviews that have been posted about this book, I have to wonder if the reviewers are good friends of Mr. Faulk. Although I commend him for putting forth the effort, I have to give American Dream a thumbs down. Generally these sorts of books are supposed to be a) humorous, or b) insightful to the human condition. Funny? Not even close.I think I cracked a smile once. Insightful? Didn't say anything that isn't common sense. Lastly the thing read like a high school sophomores 'what I did over the summer' paper. Must be true that anyone can get published these days. Too bad I wasn't smart enough to figure that out before losing $11

  An American Life , 11/06/2006
Reviewer: Carrie Bryant
I read this book as soon as I got it in the mail. It immediately held my attention. I appreciated the fact that Mr. Faulk shared his successes and failures in life. Even though his book was geared toward the young adult, I felt that there were ideas that were presented that would benefit people of all ages. His book was funny, insightful, heartfelt and realistic. I highly recommend this book.

  If this book were a flavor , 11/15/2006
Reviewer: Cindy Beier
It would be vanilla. Like one of the other reviews stated, this book seems to be aimed toward young adults. Admittedly the first two chapters were funny, but there isn't much else that I can recommend. I often felt like I was listening to my parents trying to give me advice. The writing style is simple which isn't a bad thing, but you do wonder about the level of talent a consumer finds in self-published books.
