Review of The Son Also Rises: Surnames and the History of Social Mobility

Gregory Clark
Rating: 3/5

Had some fascinating insights into social mobility (there's not a lot of it, and that is maybe a good thing), but the best part of the book to me was that it was a case study in good experiment design.

I wouldn't recommend it, but if you are going to anyway, you can skim it -- the conclusions keep being the same.
