    I have read this book, and I would like to second the recommendation that 
    it should be read. It it written in a highly entertaining and engaging 
    style and the conclusions drawn are tough to dispute. Be aware, though, 
    that the author, Jim Goad, although highly literate, published the VERY 
    controversial 'zine "Answer Me!", which included rape fantasies, among 
    other really weird stuff. He is currently in an Oregon prison serving a 
    two-year term for beating the crap out of his girlfriend, which he 
    gleefully recounts in the book "Apocalypse Culture II."  White trash, indeed!
