The essay "Disregad of Reality" in this collection is really great. Id recommend reading it for anyone who can find a copy online.

Edit- its available on the Cato Institute's website for anyone interested

"Population Explosion" is a good defense against the fears of population growth and policies like China's one-child policy.

No I don't read many biographies really. Did they discuss his relationship with Mario and him living at his place a lot?

Yeah they discuss it a fair share. It's a really interesting read, not really a bio, just a chronicle of the day to day of his rookie year.

The poems are really spontaneous and random which gives them a vitality or freshness. One reason I like O'Hara's poetry so much is he is so open emotionally and takes such an honest and unrestrained approach to his emotion. He basically has no shame or filter which is necessary to be a truly great poet.

Just finished this. Bauer is a very effective writer and his arguments against the use of foreign aid and egalitarian economic policy is pretty convincing. I especially enjoyed his logic approach and attitude about the misuse of statistics by economists.

Just finished this. Awesome book, it's too bad Metro 2034 hasn't been translated yet. I had been meaning to read it for a while now, but I had only picked up a kindle recently. Now I gotta dig through this thread and find something else to read.
