really liked it
Read from March 07 to June 22, 2012

Lying in Politics was an interesting read, particularly in relation to Vietnam. Civil Disobedience, the main reason I picked up the book, was *very* thought provoking with regard to the "Occupy" phenomenon.

I found On Violence to be less interesting than the first two essays, but it was saved somewhat by the interview on the essay that followed.

Overall, I'd say that Lying in Politics and Civil Disobedience are worthwhile reads. Maybe skip the rest of the book.
