Show synopsis What Is Wrong With The World is a remarkably perceptive analysis of social and moral issues by British novelist and critic G. K. Chesterton. Chesterton's style is light and humorous but also deadly serious and philosophical as he provides witty commentary on feminism, education, family, and other topics."I originally called this book "What is Wrong," and it would have satisfied your sardonic temper to note the number of social misunderstandings that arose from the use of the title. Many a mild lady visitor opened her eyes when I remarked casually, "I have been doing 'What is Wrong' all this morning." And one minister of religion moved quite sharply in his chair when I told him (as he understood it) that I had to run upstairs and do what was wrong, but should be down again in a minute."Gilbert Keith Chesterton was an English prolific and diverse writer whose subjects include philosophy, ontology, poetry, playwriting, Christian apologetics, and fiction, including detective fiction. Chesterton is well known for his reasoned apologetics, as a political thinker and orthodox Christian.
