Review: Hatred: The Psychological Descent Into Violence
Hatred: The Psychological Descent Into Violence by Willard Gaylin
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I had high hopes for this book, but, to be honest, I was very disappointed. Dr. Gaylin spends a great deal of the book repeating the same idea in as many different ways as he can possibly think of and engaging in tangents on a variety of subjects, including history, religion, and international relations, of which his knowledge his woefully deficient. Even when he does stay on topic and on point, I must express my disappointment and disagreement with his ideas, which seem to draw very heavily on Freud and, as a result, suffer from the same problems. I do not recommend this book.
