    This is a very narrow and small minded book parading as a big thoughtful one It says it is about the American Mind but the data and the theory only support the coddling of a very narrow subset of the American mind upper middle class college kids born after 1995 that got to college in 2013 As far as that group is concerned this is really good advice I totally agree with his three untruths your feelings are not necessarily true the world is

A timely investigation into the campus assault on free speech and what it means for students education and our democracyThe generation now coming of age has been taught three Great Untruths their feelings are always right; they should avoid pain and discomfort; and they should look for faults in others and not themselves These three Great Untruths are part of a larger philosophy that sees young people as fragile creatures who must be protected and supervised by adults But despite the good intentions of the adults who impart them the Great Untruths are harming kids by teaching them the opposite of ancient wisdom and the opposite of modern psychological findings on.
