Grouped into seven parts ('Media', 'Education', 'Family and Gender', 'Race and Minorities', 'Politics and Law', 'Culture and Language', and 'Society and Social Behavior'), the body of the book consists of reprints of Leo's columns from U.S. News & World Report, each only about a page long. Unfortunately, this makes the reading feel like riding with someone who's learning to drive stick, just as he gets rolling, he stops and starts again.
The two biggest downsides to the book are not Leo's fault: first, the articles aren't dated, which would have helped put some of his comments (like those on O.J. and Amy Fisher) a little more into perspective, and second, inexplicably, there's no index, which would have saved you much frustration the many times in the future you will likely refer back to these articles again.
