    It used to be pretty easy to distinguish between the bourgeois world of capitalism and the bohemian counterculture. The bourgeois worked for corporations, wore gray, and went to church. The bohemians were artists and intellectuals. Bohemians championed the values of the liberated 1960s; the bourgeois were the enterprising yuppies of the 1980s.

    "Sometimes it Seems Too Far"
    Overall

    When we expect the unexpected, we usually discover that old and sacred truth - what comes around goes around. Or as they used to say in the 60's, "You are what you eat!" Bobos in Paradise is a twist on this ilk and noteable exception to the "Got ya - you're an idiot" school of social observation. But like watching whales in Baja California, far too much of the action takes place below water and out of site. None-the-less, for those looking for challenging yet glissful read in the hammock with a cool lemonade in hand (or is it visa-versa), this may be a book which you might not want to miss.
