The Cult of Smart


The Cult of Smart

“In deBoer’s searing indictment of our modern meritocracy, he rightly observes that the usual explanations don’t add up.”
—Elizabeth Bruenig, New York Times Opinion Writer

“A cogent, beautifully written, and radically challenging book. It has made me profoundly uncomfortable.”
—Alan Jacobs, author of Breaking Bread with the Dead

“Freddie deBoer stands out as the genuine article—deliberate, wide-ranging, lionhearted, and invariably worth reading. An important contribution to our educational debates.”
—Gideon Lewis-Kraus, author of A Sense of Direction

“Provocative . . . passionate”
—Publishers Weekly
