yes, easier to digest while doing other things. (drive, yardwork, etc.)
Sowell's plain, focused wisdom. His ability to communicate fairly complex ideas without the need to clutter the experience with jargon. His ability to distill simple truths from storms of confusion and irrelevancy, then write only those distilled truths.
Too many to list. Best summary of the important issues relating to WWII I've ever read. Best dissection of the forces/incentives that drive public intellectuals.
No leftist intellectual's belief system will survive an honest, curious reading of this book.
deep simple true
His brief autobiography was like the rest of his writing. Concise, interesting, full of deeper insights.
The book has something like a hundred one-line quotables. I've probably use four already in discussions on facebook.
Too many to mention. The entire "random thoughts" chapter was pure gold.
I'm looking forward to my next Sowell purchase.
His unique life has led to a unique wisdom, and fortunately he's got both the talent and inclination to share.
