In the pages of its first issue, GOOD takes on some big issues, the biggest being our collective love/hate affair with America. Great minds like James Surowiecki and Neal Pollack join in the debate, offering their unique perspective on what it means to be an American in this day and age. On a lighter note, GOOD also tells you how to buy a US senator, tracks the fame and fortune of Paris Hilton and introduces you to 8 individuals who are trying to change the world.
While other magazines take on similar subject manner, the beauty of GOOD is that is does so without being too abrasive or self-righteous. It may be a bit snarky at times, and even I can’t deny that it leans to the left a little. Such minor “faults” can’t diminish the importance of attempting to make its readers stop and think about what really matters.
Putting their money where their mouth is, GOOD has also pledged all of the proceeds from charter subscriptions to charity. Better yet, you get to choose the charity to which your $20 goes.
