"'Right Angles and Other Obstinate Truths' is a facinating collection of commentaries on current issues, famous and infamous individuals, passing fads, Baby Boomer memories and personal experiences. The more than 70 short essays by Michael M. Bates are provocative and may strike some as controversial. They all appeared in his regular column in the southwest suburban Chicago 'Reporter Newspapers'."--Page 4 of cover.
