The Violence Inside Us: A Brief History of an Ongoing American Tragedy Reviews

  • Jaclyn
    This book has taught me why America is such a global outlier for higher rates of violent acts (mass shootings, grudge shootings, domestic abuse, & suicides); a romanticism of gun ownership and easy access to the most violent of weapons has thrown gasoline on the fire of an inevitably violent nation....

    Very interesting and Educational! ...

    This book was excellent. It is well paced, well researched, and gives a good picture into his character without it being "about" him. Chris Murphy has a great writing voice and analyzes the issue of violence and inequality as well as the lessons he has learned in his career....

    It was a great look at a very harrowing subject. It was very interesting. It made me cry with all of the stories about people killed by gun violence. I think it is a must read for everyone of voting age....

I also thought a lot of information was dragged out, especially the history of violence. Overall a great informational book on...

    Faulty premise. We are not obsessed with guns. We are obsessed with freedom. There is a reason that our founding fathers, after being oppressed then shot at, put the Second Amendment in place. As for me, I believe the only reason government would take guns away from law abiding citizens would be if ...
