Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Pulitzer Prize-winning cultural critic Henry debunks ideas of inherent equality, arguing that not all achievements are the same.
Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Review

"A  passionate yet reasoned argument for the proposition  that some people simply contribute more to society  than others. It challenges head-on the  presumptions and platitudes of government, academia, and  even private industry." -- The  Atlanta Journal Constitution.

"A wide-ranging, free-swinging commentary that will  raise the hackles of nearly everyone." --  New York Times.

"Bracing... eloquent testimony that what killed  liberalism in this country is a deeply misguided  egalitarianism." -- The New York Times  Book Review.
