Overall, I liked this book. A couple of very interesting chapters, particularly the one on War, which discusses the inter-war period leading up to WWII.

There were many places where Sowell is guilty of the same generalizations for which he ridicules the intelligentsia, which keep me from rating this book higher. But overall, its a work useful to inform one's principles-based framework of beliefs.
