June’s Book: All the Trouble in the World

Truth.As available in audiobook form.Our staff promised you the perfect beach read for June and don’t worry, we didn’t welch on that.

P.J. O’Rourke’s All the Trouble in the World: The Lighter Side of Overpopulation, Famine, Ecological Disaster, Ethnic Hatred, Plague, and Poverty has a lot to offer.

March’s Book: The Tyranny of Silence

Twitter censureship ready.The Tyranny of Silence.Last month, our pick Fahrenheit 451 looked at a world without books.

This month, with Flemming Rose’s The Tyranny of Silence we look at world without free speech, and unfortunately, that world doesn’t seem all that different from today given the strangle hold of political correctness (now joined by Twitter) already fused to our throat.

February’s Book: Fahrenheit 451

Ray Bradbury on his writing.When the Government tells you to strike the match, will you?With Russia back to burning books, our staff couldn’t find a better pick for February than Ray Bradbury’s classic, Fahrenheit 451.
