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!
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.
