The Illuminatus! Trilogy by Robert Shea
"
[This review is dedicated to the anarchist and occasional friend Steve Ash who sadly died last year. This book meant a great deal to him.]

Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler
"I read this in 1979 as part of my first degree (in history) whilst doing a course on Modern German History. It doesn’t read easily; Hitler wasn’t a natural author! The most interesting thing is that this was written without hindsight or from a pos..." Read more of this review »

John O'Donohue
“If you send out goodness from yourself, or if you share that which is happy or good within you, it will all come back to you multiplied ten thousand times. In the kingdom of love there is no competition; there is no possessiveness or control. The more love you give away, the more love you will have.”
John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

John Kennedy Toole
“It smells terrible in here.'

Well, what do you expect? The human body, when confined, produces certain odors which we tend to forget in this age of deodorants and other perversions. Actually, I find the atmosphere of this room rather comforting. Schiller needed the scent of apples rotting in his desk in order to write. I, too, have my needs. You may remember that Mark Twain preferred to lie supinely in bed while composing those rather dated and boring efforts which contemporary scholars try to prove meaningful. Veneration of Mark Twain is one of the roots of our current intellectual stalemate.”
John Kennedy Toole, A Confederacy of Dunces

“...I doubt very seriously whether anyone will hire me.'
