If you don't mind thinking without first deciding what you're Supposed to Think, or even what you maybe Want to Think, there's great fun in following Goldberg's often funny and always sharp accounts of the fads and fallacies of standard sociology.
By the way, I don't quite know how it got in the book, but as a bonus there's a really great piece on Bob Dylan's music--one of the best!
I found myself using every free moment to pick it up and find what "I KNEW to be the ONLY and correct opinions" on many of the issues needing additional thought and consideration on my part. This caught my husband's attention and he couldn't wait for me to put it down so he could read it. We've spent quite some time since discussing the issues therein.
Kudos to Professor Goldberg for an entertaining and thought provoking book!
that door, and moved on. So sure of what I had concluded, I
rarely re-visted issues i knew resolved. Professor Goldberg's
book re-opens those doors and forces you to re-think your positions on the critical issues like the death penalty, i.q., homosexuality,and race through the logic of time and fact. The importance of this book it opens my eyes to where i was wrong.
