An Epidemic of Mental Illness In Our Children


Johnathan Haidt is perhaps my favorite culture analyst. His books The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion, and The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure (with Greg Lukionoff), are required reading.

Haidt is like Kierkegaard, but with data.

His new book came out today - The Anxious Generation: How the Great Rewiring of Childhood Is Causing a Epidemic of Mental Illness. I purchased it for my Kindle, and am reading.

See Saturday's article on Haidt in the New York Times.
