Picture There is this person I followed for a little while on social media who provided some fairly interesting and unique insights into Shakespeare and Elizabethan poetry. He recorded his observations and posted them on YouTube and attained a small, but loyal following of people who were authentically interested in the material he presented. This scholar later attained some publicity when he co-starr... Read more of this blog post »

Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
"This book was quite an psychological and emotional rollercoaster, perhaps because I happen to be facing my own Rodion Roddy moment recently. No matter, as I think it helped me better appreciate the book, unlike if I was reading it in a manner whic..." Read more of this review »
Crimen y castigo by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
"It’s been a long time since a book made me cry. Dostoyevsky’s grateness relies on his deep understanding of the human character and psyche. This books makes you understand in apparently an innocuous way what it means to be alive. Raskolnikov const..." Read more of this review »
12 Rules for Life by Jordan B. Peterson
"A book by Jordan Peterson, I won’t be able to do it justice.
12 Rules for Life is a wonderful book. It is typical Peterson with large amounts of insightful information and wit. The book includes information that I knew, did not know, and informati..." Read more of this review »
Maps of Meaning by Jordan B. Peterson
“Of course, my socialist colleagues and I weren’t out to hurt anyone – quite the reverse. We were out to improve things – but we were going to start with other people. I came to see the temptation in this logic, the obvious flaw, the danger – but could also see that it did not exclusively characterize socialism. Anyone who was out to change the world by changing others was to be regarded with suspicion. The temptations of such a position were too great to be resisted.”
Jordan B. Peterson
" That is very kind of you. I hope you enjoy the novel. Best wishes. "
