Blitzed through this book in the space of a couple of days. I can get why James o'Brien could rub people the wrong way. However, I don't think you can fault his logic. It's too easy to let people with opinions that are not opinions but absolute bollocks viewpoints lacking in any logic and letting them off saying "well I guess that's your views" when they're not. It's crap spouted but the newspaper rags and they repeat happily without thinking what's been said.

Don't know about tools per se. The guy is a talk show radio host who has a pretty good record of getting through to people's bullshit. That might not sound like much but how many times do you see an interview and you're waiting for the follow up question to the one the interviewee just avoided.

Anyway, the book is him writing about dealing with callers he talks to every day on different subjects from Brexit, to the favourite buzzword of morons "politically correct" and so on. I'm really enjoying it any road.

here's one he did with Rees-Mogg

I love that this thread is so active. I also frequent the animal collective board, and despite having several dozen more members, their books thread is not this lively by far.

I had got a third of the way through that Alan Turing biography but all the math became tedious.

Now I'm on the new Neal Stephenson. Quite good. I liked Snow Crash alright. This is much better.

about 20 pages or so from finishing the Claw of Conciliator.

Yesterday I received a good condition 1st edition hardback with the dustjacket of Sword of the Lictor. Got it from ebay for $8.00. Will start in on it as soon as I finish the CLAW

I saw the trailer for the series they're doing a few weeks back and decided to re-read the trilogy. I'd actually forgotten most of it myself so it felt new too. Brilliant books.

this is SO good. I am kinda sad that this is the only translation of her work. I wish I had paid more attention in Spanish class, so I could read all her books...
