American Thinking II is an anthology of Frank Borelli's work for the law enforcement & military communities, producing articles about motivation, common sense, service to our country and more.
For the first edition of American Thinking, I said that Frank Borelli is just young enough to qualify as a senior member of "generation X", giving him the perfect combination of decades of experience and relative youth. This fact, combined with his far-reaching audience and its concomitant impact, makes him a man to watch. Sometimes I'm right, and I was then! Frank's writing has gone on to reach an audience that's larger than almost anyone else in the field, and do so month after month. He has become one of the philosophers of the police and armed citizen field, always tying the least of things the actual "stuff" to the truly important things: where we are heading as a nation, what kind of people we are becoming, and what kind of country we are creating for our kids. His work also continually focuses on our responsibilities as public safety professionals or non-sworn citizens, not just to our jobs, but in the face of the threats we face as individuals and to civilized values. And make no mistake, both these things are under dire attack by determined enemies. In short, this writing work tells you a little about the "what" of defending ourselves and our civilization, more important it tells you a lot about the "how", and most important it discusses and often explains the "why". This book is an education about what it should mean to be an American at this inflection point in our history.
