Overall I love the writings of Thomas Paine. My one complaint is the sections where he just goes nuts arguing against Mr. Burke. We get it, you don't agree with him about the French Revolution, move on! He just droned on and on. When he is simply outlining arguments for concepts vs. arguing against a person about a particular set of events or tract, his writing and voice become much stronger.

A book every American should have to read.
