I've read this book at least 10 times, starting in 5th grade. It's a classic, and if you disagree I hope you get your ass kicked by a greaser.
Holden's thesis is that we have allowed the accomplishments of the ancient Greeks to throw sand in our eyes. Their descendants are every bit as disorganized as the worst of the Balkan peoples (who, at the same time, they do not hesitate to disdain). I was surprised to first hear this opinion from Robert D. Kaplan in BALKAN GHOSTS, in which he recommended this book. Read it BEFORE you go to Greece on that vacation.
