Shoe Dog by Phil Knight
"The Phil Knight I've read about in my lifetime is the multi-billionaire who gets to sell sports and do philanthropy for a living, and has had close personal relationships with most of the greatest athletes of our time. It's a dream life.

Nate Dern and 25 other people liked Karen Chee's review of 1984:
1984 by George Orwell
"Holy shit I cannot believe this happened in 1984. why don’t we talk about it anymore?! disappointed once again in America’s public schools. 12 years of history classes and not ONE word about this. and it was only 36 years ago!!!!"

“Living alone? Living truly and utterly alone by cutting yourself off from others and the possibility of real human connection through keeping people at a distance, first as a choice out of fear, then as a learned defense mechanism to prevent suffering?”
Nate Dern, Not Quite a Genius

“This, I realized now watching Dienekes rally and tend to his men, was the role of the officer: to prevent those under this command, at all stages of battle--before, during and after--from becoming "possessed." To fire their valor when it flagged and rein in their fury when it threatened to take them out of hand. That was Dienekes' job. That was why he wore the transverse-crested helmet of an officer. His was not, I could see now, the heroism of an Achilles. He was not a superman who waded invulnerably into the slaughter, single-handedly slaying the foe by myriads. He was just a man doing a job. A job whose primary attribute was self-restraint and self-composure, not for his own sake, but for those whom he led by his example.”
Steven Pressfield, Gates of Fire
