There is nothing else like both the content and the style of this masterful book. If you want insight into class structure, especially in the US, then read this book. After about a hundred years it is still relevant.
In summary, pay the extra ten bucks for the deluxe edition; it comes with sharp sticks to gouge out your eyes. On the plus side, the book is so full of bull that its torn pages make a potent fertilizer. I give it an idiosyncratic congerie of low scores.
