"Tailspin: The People and Forces Behind America's Fifty-Year Fall — and Those Fighting to Reverse It," by Steven Brill.

The American dream is a very distant dream for a growing number of Americans who wonder whether opportunities — especially educational and financial — are beyond their reach.

For many, this isn’t a development of the past 10 years or so. Author Steven Brill argues it’s been five decades in the making.

Brill’s new book is called "Tailspin: The People and Forces Behind America’s Fifty Year Fall — and Those Fighting to Reverse It."

He joined The Show to talk about it.
