KIRKUS REVIEW

Non sequential (loosely disorganized) admonitions that start off with the new morality which advocates freedom, repudiates fixity. Topically, Mr. Jones (as he has in earlier books such as this) discusses cheating not only in schools but marriage (this includes premarital sex? ? ?) and in business; exploitation (from Vietnam to narcissism to unionism); escape, pessimism; honor, concluding with the exhortation ""To Be Christian."" There are small citations from the convict who made good to Carver and Schweitzer, and many, many quotations from Eric Hoffer and Huxley down to Lloyd C. Douglas. Rebukes along with a few golden rules of thumb.
