'The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life' — Erving Goffman


It's been a while since I featured this iconic 1959 book, published when Goffman was 37 years old.

It became an instant classic and led to his being considered by some the most influential American sociologist of the 20th century (though he didn't leave his native Canada for the U.S. until he was 23).

No matter.

You're saying "I dunno, I'm not sure I wanna fork over $16.39 just because some brain-dead anesthesiologist — long past due, retired, even — recommends it.

Your wish is my demand.

Read the book here —  free, the way we like it.
