… by Laura Moriarty, author of the novel American Heart, which I discuss in The Tyranny of Opinion.
Since I discuss American Heart sympathetically, and defend its author over the public controversy that arose from it last year, it wouldn't be surprising if Ms Moriarty were predisposed to be sympathetic, in turn, to my book. Still, if you read the review (scroll down the page for it), you'll see that it's by someone who has obviously given The Tyranny of Opinion thought and consideration. I'm very pleased with this first public review to appear on Goodreads.

This is abridged and edited from the opening chapter of The Tyranny of Opinion. It will give an idea of the emphases and the prose style of the book, and where I'm coming from with it.
