Product description

Review

"A classic for our times. It is as fundamental for understanding the world we live in as the three R's."

"Theodore Dalymple is the best doctor-writer since William Carlos Williams."

"His gift for storytelling will keep readers turning pages."

Brilliant social analysis...a master chronicle of life at the bottom.--Hilton Kramer

Theodore Dalrymple is the best doctor-writer since William Carlos Williams.--Peggy Noonan

Once in a long while a writer comes along with a vision so powerful that it shakes you. Theodore Dalrymple is that kind of writer.--Bruce Ramsey "Liberty Press "

Truthful therefore morally courageous and intellectually rigorous.--Norman Podhoretz"

It is a truism that ideas have consequences, but a truism is rarely illustrated as implacably as in this book.--George F. Will, syndicated columnist for The Washington Post

Truthful--therefore morally courageous and intellectually rigorous.--Norman Podhoretz

Lucid, unsentimental, and profoundly honest...Dalrymple is one of the great essayists of our age.--Denis Dutton, Editor, Arts & Letters Daily
