Fred Reed's collection of columns has a way of politely tapping you on the shoulder, saying "Excuse me, but would you look at that?" and then scooping you up into an entertaining, mind-nudging look at how the social re-engineering of America affects us all on a daily basis. These are serious topics presented with such enthusiasm, humor, and clarity that even the most politically apathetic or under-informed reader can't help but smile and mumble "Well, that's the damned truth!"
I bought one for myself and two for friends who also wonder why we might be perceived as P.I. for working hard, opening doors each other, and enjoying gender differences. This is the stuff that the vast majority of us admit to each other. Finally seeing it in print is validating and exciting!
Entertaining and disturbing.
