Booked Up with Jen Taub
A MINOR REVOLUTION with Adam Benforado
July 2, 2023
In This Episode:
This week Jen’s guest is Adam Benforado, author of the compelling new book “A Minor Revolution: How Prioritizing Kids Benefits Us All.”
The Atlantic said A Minor Revolution is “An extremely sympathetic and worthy attempt to protect kids…. [this is] a book that reads like a manifesto. His ideas are bold, to the point, and ambitious.” Salon praised Adam’s work as “Ambitious . . . His unifying argument is anti-inertial. . . . The book blew my mind.”
And friend of the podcast, Heather McGhee (author of The Sum of Us), said Adam “weaves compelling real-life stories with legal and economic analysis to deliver a bracing indictment of our society’s self-sabotage. He doesn’t end there, however; his final recommendations for how to change course are both revolutionary and accessible.”
Adam is a professor of law at Drexel University. A graduate of Yale College and Harvard Law School, he served as a federal appellate law clerk and an attorney at Jenner & Block.
He is also the author of the award-winning New York Times bestseller Unfair and is also the author of numerous scholarly articles and popular essays.
