Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Allen coins the word ``dumbth'' to describe contemporary Americans' common ignorance in significant categories of knowledge, cites examples of this phenomenon and recommends the teaching of reasoning in early school years. ``Tempering missionary zeal with humor and humaneness, Allen addresses a sorry condition and, better yet, suggests solutions,'' said PW.
