    "If you like the philosophic aspect of political science, this book is for you. De Tocqueville poses several thought-provoking questions throughout the book that will make you question everything you ever thought to be true about our current political state. It's a bit of a dry read and not a good pool-side book, but it's an excellent addition to any library and is one everyone who cares about politics should read at least once. "

    "Awesome book. I learned more about the political system and the philosophies behind it than in years of school. Lots of straight factual information and lots of really great commentary and just wonderful writing."

    "I know of De Tocqueville and his travels down the Mississippi River in the United States, but this is the very first I have ever heard of this book that he wrote. I would have expected De Tocqueville to have written about the natural world, but, no, he wrote about living standards of the Western world. I have bookmarked this on amazon, and hope to read this some time in the future. It is over 700 pages, so I will need to be motivated by more than just curiosity."

    "This book describes the democracy that has made America what it is today. It is not a good book to read if you are seeking information on the Russian Revolution."

    "If you are interested in these types of books, you really need to read this one! This one is usually required to be read by highschool and college students for school. There is good reason! Every American should really look into this book, and learn from it! "

    "This is a horrible suggestion. No, not the book itself, but the suggestion of any book in no way constitutes a proper answer to the request. A resource for discovering new books cannot be a book unless it's a book about other books. This book is not about other books. This book is, as it is so titled, about democracy in America."

    "Democracy in America is a great way to discover new books. While it talks about the history of America is has a giant appendix that can lead you to all sorts of other books. It's very interesting and if you follow all of its leads you'll never be able to stop reading!"

    "This book looks very informative. It is a decent length and there are a lot of favorable reviews. I am positive it is a great book for those interested in the subject matter. I would not go as far as calling it the best book however as there have been less than 500 reviews on it."

    "I am not sure its the best book of all time but its an old book that seems to be very popular when it comes to the subject matter."

    "I was intrigued by the premise of this book and how old it was. It made for a very interesting and compelling read. "
