Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

True to her book's title, Boston Globe syndicated columnist Goodman makes many value judgments in this collection of some 130 columns. She advocates lifting the ban on gays in the military; gives credence to Anita Hill's sexual harassment charges against Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas; and lashes Woody Allen for failure to distinguish right from wrong in having an affair with Mia Farrow's adopted daughter. Goodman's pithy style and keen insights inform her essays on money and marriage, race relations, overpopulation, teaching children about sex, and urban squirrels as exemplars of adaptabilty and flat-out nerve. Although topical pieces on Madonna, the William Kennedy Smith date-rape trial and other fleeting events have lost their fizz, the columns, on balance, hold up well as a search for values in an age when parents neglect or abandon their children and children legally "divorce" their parents.

From Library Journal

Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist Goodman has produced her fifth volume of collected columns (following Making Sense , LJ 8/89; Keeping in Touch , LJ 10/15/85; At Large , LJ 9/1/81; and Close to Home , LJ 12/1/79). Goodman, who describes the primary subject matter of her writing as a search for or explanation of values, here strives to reclaim the importance and legitimacy of making value judgments for both individuals and the community. Ranging in her coverage from the political campaign of 1992 to living and dying in a high-tech age, Goodman explores the ongoing individual and social struggles over values. Readers familiar with her work will find the moderately progressive and feminist stance of her pieces predictable, though the works themselves are well written. Recommended for collections where Goodman's earlier works have circulated well and for journalism collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 6/15/93.

Format: Paperback
This book exceeded my expectations. It is a great read, written by a journalist of great humor, wisdom, and with "all the right answers, and all the great questions." It takes a look at the past and what may well be some of the present of the American society in a very pensitive way, and yet has the reader thinking with the author. I can't say enough how much I enjoyed each article.
