The Tyranny of Opinon reviewed at Goodreads ...

… 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.
