Sprinkled with serious observations and facts, Leon manages to get across the real nature of all these people; describing the difficulties faced by illegals, for example, but also painting honest portraits of his subjects that both entertain and enlighten… And because Leon doesn't focus solely on the usual subcultures (i.e. Christians), The American Dream will surely have something for anyone interested in reading a little more about the less-‘standard’ people in America.”

“This book will make your sides hurt…A master of disguise – and literary hijinx – Leon satirizes all that’s comical and commendable about the American Dream.”
Carson Daly, on Last Call with Carson Daly
"Dangerous, endlessly entertaining....Read the book it’s fantastic. Trust me this is great!"
“In a quasi-democratic, pseudo-caplitalistic society like ours, citizens tend to create extremist subcultures, and Gonzo chameleon Harmon Leon has made a career out of infiltrating those eccentric covens.”

“This manic mix of Borat and Hunter S Thompson is amusing”
