Florida Dreams: All About the Amazing Rise of the Sunshine Mega-State

A Guide to All Things Florida

Florida Dreams is for everyone who wants to really understand Florida. It's the only up-to-date book currently available telling you all about Florida's economy and politics. Controversial issues covered include in-migration from the north, Hispanic immigration, tourism, aerospace and defense, the decline of agriculture, environmental challenges like the red tide, and, of course, the perennial election night question of whether Florida will be red or blue.

Patrick Grady talks about his new book.

I welcome the opportunity to talk to book clubs and other groups across Florida.
