's review

I thought, a few chapters in, 'This would be a good book for [the less confident readers I work with].' It took me a little while longer to work out that it was indeed written with that kind of audience - whether schoolchildren or less confident adults - in mind. This is an interesting account of what it was like to attend university in mid 20th century USA, by a student from a working class, immigrant, background, but the deliberate choice to use simplified language occasionally had a distancing effect.
