My latest reads are not of the typical summer variety – Danielle Steele be damned. I was forced into Wall Street: A History from its Beginnings to the Fall of Enron, by Charles Geisst, for a business history class. It’s a spirited and interesting book, and free-market friendly to boot. I’m also reading Muscle: Confessions of an Unlikely Bodybuilder, by Samuel Fussell. I just picked up – and started reading immediately – Thomas Sowell’s Black Rednecks and White Liberals, a daring hodgepodge of essays in regards to popular cultural assumptions, including some masterful revisionist viewpoints from Sowell. His chapter on the damning of all Germans – based on a dozen years of history – is a fine defense of a great culture. Right or wrong – he’s a gem. Finally, I’ve cracked open Laurence Bonjour’s In Defense of Pure Reason: A Rationalist Account of A Priori Justification, which is a systematic defense of a priori justification. A great beach book, by the way.
