The Scariest Book I've Read in a Long Time
I'm a hundred pages into the new book by Greg Lukionoff and Jonathan Haidt, The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Ideas and Bad Intentions Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure. It's excellent. And, the scariest book I have read in a long time. (Because, among other things, it's Orwellian.)
Their book is the more thorough follow-up to their famous Atlantic essay, "The Coddling of the American Mind." This article provoked much discussion. So is the book.
Read the article to get the idea.
