Obedience (Will Lavender)

PB suggested I listen to this book and I feel guilty telling him I don't like very much. I guess because what's supposed to be the central theme of the book - obedience and how it was / can be illustrated in social psychological experiments - is very poorly carried out. I don't really see how Milgram really relates to any of this, besides the surface similarities in that each are studies that involved high amounts of deceptions.

in the book, the study we read about.. well... it's not really very interesting and it didn't really demonstrate much of anything about human behavior. I don't know. Glad I finished it.
