    Needed: re-institute shame/Honor I recommend this book to all Millennials who have been raised to believe Honor is a right of birth; and that shame is an unnecessary tool that only damages ego/self-esteem. In the book of Exodus we are directed to “Honor” (not necessarily love) our father and mother-with a resultant promise of a long and full life. The cause and effect relationship between honor and good behavior has been long lost to our culture. Honor and happiness go hand in hand!

    A simple plan from a simple mind. Yet, put someone like Harvey Weinstein, a rapist, with Lance Armstrong, who came out first among a long list of cyclists doping for a lifetime? And the solution is the Military? Where hazing remains unknown, and, unlike Harvey Weinstein's environment there are no rapes? Puhlease! A simple plan from a simple mind.

    I thought it was a really good book and really made you think about how much honor is lacking in our society.

    Most of what the author wrote made sense but it just wasn't particularly insightful or fresh to me. Most of what the author wrote made sense but it just wasn't particularly insightful or fresh to me.
