Born in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada, an Eastern suburb of Toronto, Jonathan R. Rose loved to learn, so, as is often the case with those who develop an obsession with learning, he grew bored with school.

After finishing high school, he pursued several different dreams, none of which panned out. He then found a job at an upstart airline, which he loved, but due to that airline's negligence, he severely injured his back after his first year, and required surgery. It was during a year long convalescence that he rekindled his love for reading, a love that he lost over the course of his young adulthood. It was during that time, laying in bed, left with nothing else to do, that he devoured great literary works from the likes of Tolstoy, Cervantes

A great book when it comes to learning how far branding has come, and how destructive the results have been. While written in the 90s, reading it now offers a great glimpse into the past, and sadly, while the author described several instances where ...more

The Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer

Chaucer's magnum opus is everything a magnum opus should be, absolutely enormous in the scope it encompasses. While difficult reading at times, as I'm not well versed in reading verse, and I find it tedious, the tales themselves are incredibly dense, ...more

If you are a fan of the Fear and Loathing books by Hunter Thompson, then many of the essays in this book will excite you just as much. His writing was unique. His writing was him. So if you didn't like him, or the thought of him, or the idea of what ...more
