    In Coming Apart, Charles Murray explores the formation of American classes that are different in kind from anything we have ever known, focusing on whites as a way of driving home the fact that the trends he describes do not break along lines of race or ethnicity.

    Brent says: "great insights to today's culture wars"
    "Interesting concepts but too many statistics"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe, I liked the concept of delving into divisions in American society that have arisen during the past 50 years - but became bored over the countless statistics that permeated the delivery of the message


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Coming Apart?

    The broad concepts


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The statistics - some of which were rather marginal in support of the concepts


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    The division of society into Belmont and Fishtown were overdrawn and missed the nuances and also the differences that occur within the respective divisions.
