The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership by John C. Maxwell
Rate this book
Clear rating
Despite everything, this book was quite good. Maxwell is capable of leaning into the cliches, and he points to some leaders who were painfully incompetent, but who are lauded generally for other reasons, but setting all that aside, the principles out...more
Not Cool by Greg Gutfeld
Rate this book
Clear rating
Gutfeld is really shrewd, and this diagnosis of the cool that ails us is painfully accurate. He has no foundation for his insights, however, which is why they wobble the way they do. Will probably write more about this at Mablog.
Retreat to Commitment by W.W. Bartley III

His demolition job on liberal Protestantism leaves lots and lots of little pieces all over. Fantastic job. His own attempts to make a case for his "pancritical rationalism" was lame. Well worth the read, if only for the phrase taken from the title.
The Little Black Book of Writers' Wisdom by Steven D. Price

A lot of fun -- quite a number of good quotes on writing. Here's one: A.J. Liebling said, "I can write better than anybody who can write faster, and can write faster than anybody who can write better."

“Education is the process of selling someone on books. ”
Douglas Wilson

“God gave us minds to think with and hearts to thank with. Instead we use our hearts to think about the world as we would like it to have been, and we use our minds to come up with rationalizations for our ingratitude. We are a murmuring, discontented, unhappy, ungrateful people. And because we think we want salvation from our discontents...”

Will Is there an error with your page? It says you've been reading those 3 books in your 'Currently Reading' section since 2009.


Margaret Thanks! I've read several of your titles and plan to continue on into Omnibus. I used it while working as a long term substitute at a Classical Christian School and now nothing else with suit!
