March’s Book: 1984

Scumbag government...New-speak.  Double plus good.From one dystopia to another, for March we’re crossing off arguably the most hyped and quoted libertarian read, George Orwell’s 1984.

In saying that though, long-term PDers will recall that we already covered Orwell’s Animal Farm, since our staff felt that book was clearly the superior of the two.

February’s Book: Ayn Rand’s Anthem

Quote by Ayn Rand.It has been republished a number of times, with varying covers.Why has our PD Book Club finally decided to cover Ayn Rand? After all, we are a libertarian oriented organization. What took us so long to get to her?

Well, to be honest we were just waiting for Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin to tell the world not to.

January’s Book: The Art of Being Unmistakable

It’s all up to interpretation. Amazon has a few hundred reviews on this book, just in case you need more convincing. It’s January, the society mandated time of the year for self-reflections and resolutions to be better, whatever we end up defining better as.

If you are in the market for a fresh take on defining that better, then Srinivas Rao’s The Art of Being Unmistakable: A Collection of Essays About Making a Dent in The Universe is a great fit.

December’s Book: The United States vs. Santa Claus

Why does this make us laugh so much?Santa versus the State.Our special December Book Club selection for this year is streaks more jovial than last year’s Animal Farm.

Hey, with all of the hate mail we get for our depressing genocide numbers and the occasional Ray Kurzweil pick, the PD staff knew we had to at least give you a break for the holidays.

November’s Book: A Duck Dynasty Duo

Excellent point.The Duck Brothers, first generation. For November, we have a special treat in store for all of you Book Club PDers. Instead of our usual depressing Holocaust fare, or extensional Ray Kurzweil, PD decided to go with some laughs---with a little bit of politics sprinkled in.

Hey, Jack! The world is stressful enough, without having to force down 300 pages of mankind being screwed into oblivion.

Let’s look at our picks.

October’s Book: The Gift of Fear

Learning to listen to yourself is key.The gift of fear…Wonder how that applies to Obamacare?  ‘Cause we’re terrified.Since it is October, the PD staff knew that our Book Club pick had to be The Gift of Fear by Gavin de Becker, which focuses on the social queues that trump intuition--- often with deadly consequences.
