not his best.for that,see "life at the bottom"i disagree with much of his politics,but he is worth reading because of what he has witnessed,though his conclusions ,almost exclusively about human weakness and stupidity,are seldom mitigated by any understanding of their causes,which he sees exclusively as excuses.it is a lot easier to be a moral being on a doctor's salary than for many of the pathetically weak, stupid,and i agree culpable ,specimens he holds up for our examination.i agree it is all character,but where does that come from?
