The United States of Incompetence​​

Houghton Mifflin, 1991

 

Art Carey discusses the decline of morals, the family, education, the work ethic, and quality--enlivening his arguments with accounts of other disgruntled witnesses in this hard-hitting analysis of the epidemic of incompetence. The author's ability to synthesize the issues without overintellectualizing them makes The United States of Incompetence a unique contribution to the national debate.

 

Praise for The United States of Incompetence:

 

Carey, a Philadelphia journalist, examines America's declining morals, family life, education, quality of goods and services, and work ethic, asserting that we are all "drowning in a sea of incompetence." ...In the end, Carey encourages us to insist on quality and to defend standards of excellence. This is one call to war that everyone can support. Highly recommended for most libraries.

In Defense of Marriage

Walker & Co, 1984

 

This incisive and often moving book, by an author once divorced and now remarried, is certain to leave its readers with a feeling of relief and, in many cases, vindication. After a period in which marriage has been widely denigrated by society and the media, the wheel is coming around again. More and more people are beginning to agree with Art Carey that marriage is "the best arrangement man has come up with for structuring relationships, organizing family and kin, and...being the best you can be." In Defense of Marriage is definitely a must for anyone who has experienced the loneliness of the "good life" and is skeptical about the worth of fidelity, monogamy and marriage.

That's Livin': The Autobiography of Edward A. Lynch

The story of a grand family patriarch, who in his 96 years, witnessed the birth of aviation and the landing of a man on the moon. This is a candid family saga, told in his own voice, with Irish wit and humor, by a man who outlived all four of his children yet kept his optimism, faith and good cheer intact.
