The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure by Greg Lukianoff & Jonathan Haidt

“A timely investigation into the campus assault on free speech and what it means for students, education, and our democracy… This is a book for anyone who is confused by what’s happening on college campuses today, or has children, or is concerned about the growing inability of Americans to live and work and cooperate across party lines.”*

I really enjoyed this book. It was a good reflection piece on the culture within families and on college campuses today. What Lukianoff and Haidt did really well was state the facts without letting their political leanings influence the reader. They also provided copious resources from their research and they organized the book into easy to follow parts.

I recommend that you read this book if you like topics on Education within the United States, reflection on family rearing, and political influences.
