McGinn, a national correspondent for Newsweek, combines in-depth reporting and social commentary to explore Americans' obsession with home ownership. Always informative, sometimes funny and sometimes sad, this book examines how shelter as a basic necessity was transformed into an all-consuming passion, which endures even as the housing market melts down. The book includes interviews with homeowners, remodelers, and realtors. It also chronicles the author's decision to further his research by going to real estate school and buying an investment property. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
