"A refreshing take ... A Portrait of America is an essential resource for understanding demographic trends in the United States within a social context that is relevant and relatable to a wide range of audiences. The writing style is both enjoyable and accessible and draws the reader in with its narrative format that lets the readers see themselves in this portrait. This is a book that can make itself at home on the shelves of anybody who can appreciate the role that demography plays in driving societal changes that affect all our lives." -- Amber Fox Crowell City and Community
