January’s Book: BloodLine

History on repeat?Wanna feel better? Compare yourself with John Turnipseed. The name John Turnipseed might not mean much to you, but it’s utterance on any Minneapolis street back in the 70’s and 80’s would cause more people to quake with fear than repeating Candyman three times.

We picked John Turnipseed’s 2014 BloodLine: You Spend Enough Time in Hell and You Get the Feeling You Belong to be our PD Book Club Pick for January for a number of reasons.

December’s Book: God's Double Agent

The true meaning of Christmas?Faith, at a high price.Since Obama Claus and Papa Noel Maduro are chomping at the bit for the holiday season to start, our staff thought that it would be best to look at what religious freedom really means, and how in the rush to stuff half-price gifts under the tree, that freedom is often taken for granted.

November’s Book: Deep Freeze

F.A. Hayek.Deep Freeze---a great read.This month as the retail season gets into gear, our staff thought we’d talk economics. Hey, we promise, it won’t be boring.

To kick us off, PD is going back in time a few years with our Book Club pick Deep Freeze: Iceland’s Economic Collapse by Phillipp Bagus and David Howden in order to figure out what really happened there when the Icelandic currency went tits up.

October’s Book: Rise of ISIS

No one likes a sand trap. Say, "Jihad!"Since there are not a lot of things in the world more chilling than a heavily armed and funded group of tyrants that like to play soccer with human heads, October’s PD Book Club pick is on the history of Daash.

September’s Book: The Most Dangerous Superstition

Even the clever, libertarian lemur doesn’t go far enough for Rose.This is a book that you will move from purse to purse, as you try to reconcile its content.Given the current beefs in the libertarian community over who has the bigger va-jay and is more libertarian, and as Stefan Molyneux learns the hard way that it isn’t a good idea to say S&M is creepy to a man that has authored a book about how healthy a little hogtying can be before breakfast, this month PD is digging deep into fundamental libertarianism with Larken Rose’s The Most Dangerous Superstition.

August’s Book: Hacking Your Education

Everything starts with flipping your perception.An afternoon or two with Stephens will really make you think.Ready for a quick and true beach read that will put the coming demands of a scholastic September into better prospective? Then look no further than Hacking Your Education: Ditch the Lectures, Save Tens of Thousands, and Learn More Than Your Peers Ever Will by Dale Stephens, the brainchild behind Uncollege.org.

If you’re debating whether or not eBaying your kidney to pay for a Master’s will really be worth it in the long run, or if last year’s PD Book Club look with John Taylor Gatto at the Prussian schooling system now ramped up by Common Core has you curious about homeschooling your kiddos, this book should be on your Kindle.
