There's a reason this book gets a lot of buzz: It resolves the contradiction between futurism and traditionalism better than any other work of which I am aware. Anyone with a rival candidate, please contact me.

Snoring As A Fine Artand Twelve Other Essays. by Albert Jay Nock
Rate this book
Clear rating
So far Albert Jay Nock hasn't been all that good to me. In fairness, the first book that I read by him, "The Myth of a Guilty Nation" probably wasn't the best place to start. What better place to go to than a collection of essays?

Well, probably anywh...more
The Myth of a Guilty Nation by Albert Jay Nock
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is kind of an odd book to read and review, of mostly historical interest. Nock explores the "myth of a guilty nation." Namely, the supposition, now largely rejected, that the German Empire was wholly responsible for the Great War. In doing so, h...more
Democracy--The God That Failed by Hans-Hermann Hoppe
Rate this book

Hans-Hermann Hoppe, for those who aren't already familiar, is a private property anarchist with an idiosyncratic take on the history of democracy. Whereas other so-called "anarcho-capitalists" see the development of liberal democracy as inherently go...more

A friend and comrade of mine recommended this book to me as an introduction to the history of the right kind of right. First and foremost, it sure is that.

This is the only history of the American language I've ever read and I can't imagine that there's a better one.

You either like Mencken or you don't, but one thing no one fact is beyond disagreement: Mencken was arguably the most well-read man of his...more

If you like the show Justified this is definitely a must read. It all began here: Raylan Givens, the laconic and anachronistic Deputy U.S. Marshall. He's a cop who plays by his own rules. You know the type. In fact, it's pretty well-worn territory, w...more
How to Archer by Sterling Archer

I read this book in a little under 24 hours, so it's a good quick read to break up a longer, heavier read that you might be in the middle of.

This is a how-to book from the Archer. He covers how to dress, what to drink and how to have sex with hooker...more
Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card
Rate this book
Clear rating
This took me longer to read than I would have wanted. That's sort of my only complaint.

Orson Scott Card is no dummy. This is a great book that explores game theory, philosophy of mind and the value of truth vs. appearance.

What's it about? After two...more

Fuck Facebook!!!!! — It has proven to be worthless as a book-selling device, and is nothing but a repository for perverts, reparation-seekers, old buddies looking for handouts, syphillitic ex-girlfriends looking for extra-curricular schlong and hack writers begging for blurbs.”
