it was amazing
bookshelves: current-events, politics

"Violence never solved anything"? "Diversity is strength"? "Dissent is the highest form of patriotism"? Goldberg takes down these, and many other cliches, showing them to be the debate straw-men they really are, and, in the telling, makes you laugh out loud. A fantastic book, loaded with research but also fun pop culture references.
