A notable contribution to our understanding of ourselves. This audiobook explores the realm of human behavior in social situations and the way that we appear to others. Dr. Goffman uses the metaphor of theatrical performance as a framework. Each person in everyday social intercourse presents himself and his activity to others, attempts to guide and control the impressions they form of him, and employs certain techniques in order to sustain his performance, just as an actor presents a character to an audience. The discussions of these social techniques offered here are based upon detailed research and observation of social customs in many regions.

Finally on Audible!!
The best book ever written about Facebook and Instagram and it was published in 1959.
One of the most important (and readable and fun) social science books of the 20th century.
Great job with the production. It makes it easier to follow along with all the examples in this book when you listen to it.

Institutionalising racism & sexism, a “how to” guide
Tedious step by step instructions on how to collectively gaslight and exploit members of an out-group whilst using deception to avoid accountability.
Goffman writes frankly about employing offensive and highly coordinated Machiavellian like strategies. One can only assume he (like his fellow Social Darwinist) misunderstood “survival of the fittest” to mean individual rather than species fitness.
According to Darwin, members increase species fitness with behaviours like cooperation, altruism and bravery. In stark contrast to the apathy and malice actively encouraged throughout this book.
