Thomas Sowell as good as ever presents the issues of contamporary society in a clear and not too biased way. We all need to be grateful that a member of a minority has the courage to speak things, which said by a member of any majority would be considered 'politically incorrect'. Of course, mr. Sowell believes in a free market much more than it would be optimal, but is would be really hard to argue with his hypothesies, I couldn't do it:)
How institutions work mainly to benefit themselves rather than to fill their goals
The author discounts evolutionary biology and even FMRI scan studies, but instead presents only anegdotes, interviews and one scientifical study which has a much more plausable explanation (given in the book but only towards the end). The book proves only 2 things, proven before by many studies:1. That people who marry early are more dissatisfied with relationships (as heroines of all his anegdotes did)2. Evolution has equipped women with mechanism that allowes them to prevent damage to their reproductive organs during intercourse.This is it, and the book is only about blowing this out of proportion to prove author's agenda, which is allot more political than scientific
Charles's intonation could be more active during his reading
