I hated this book, for the totally pathetic reason that it made me feel stupid. I struggled through, grasping the occasional concept, until a few pages into the next-to-last chapter, when Rae started graphing out different ways to measure equality. At least that's what I THINK he was doing. Then, I gave up and threw the damn book across the room. I feel like failure. Stupid failure. Recommended for: people smarter than me.
