The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure by Greg Lukianoff: Conversation Starters Campuses are now troubled because of three terrible ideas: 1) What doesn't kill you makes you weaker; 2)Always trust your feelings; and 3) Life is a battle between good people and evil people. These ideas are woven into the way the youth are raised through childhood and how they are educated. This book will help us understand why there is rising intolerance in society today. It can help us find solutions with its deeply informed insights and scientific studies that prove important points. It is a book that will enable Americans to be more resilient and to nurture a resilient democracy.
