Product description

Review

There is so much learning and unconventional wisdom in it that you want to make the reading last.--Norman Stone

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

Theodore Dalrymple has succeeded (once more) in publishing a book that is both thoughtful and absorbing.--Paul Hollander "New York Sun "

Dalrymple has acquired a following on the sarcastic right; if anything, the thoughtful left should be reading him."--Geoffrey Wheatcroft "Newstatesman.Com "

Ridiculously prolific and a favorite of bloggers.... He's one of the very best social critics of our age.--brothersjudd.com

Terrific.... Dalrymple is direct and his judgments are so true.--Stanley Crouch "New York Daily News "

These bracing essays horrify, irritate, enlighten, amuse. They also stir you to remember, as Dalrymple puts it, what we have to lose.--Roger Kimball "New York Sun "

This highly intelligent and perceptive writer never hesitates to 'tell it like it is'.--Angela Ellis-Jones "Salisbury Review "

The sobering, fiery and ominous truth.--Stanley Crouch "Tulsa World "

Read the words of a man who has been on the street...who brings a vast intelligence to his conclusions.--Stanley Crouch "Independent "
