With references to popular culture, David Shepard creates an easy pitch for Jack Henry as the titular American caring for his friends, family, and country.

One critic wrote, "I truly enjoyed reading this book as a complete saga. I will surely miss the main characters that I've sort of developed a bond with. He became the man America needs to have more of. With qualities as his, it would be a long time for someone like him to come along. I recommend this entire saga for anyone that enjoys an exciting life full of experiences and encounters of positivity."
