    In the book that he was born to write, provocateur and best-selling author Christopher Hitchens inspires future generations of radicals, gadflies, mavericks, rebels, angry young (wo)men, and dissidents. Who better to speak to that person who finds him or herself in a contrarian position than Hitchens, who has made a career of disagreeing in profound and entertaining ways.

    Story

    Having consumed Christopher’s other works first; I see that it was the origin of much of the substance in his more popular titles. However, I feel this incarnation was the highest possible form as he shared his thoughts and subject matter expertise on being a dissident, provocateur and general pain in the ass to any person or idea on the receiving end of undeserved respect.
    As always, Christopher displays charm, unsurpassable mastery of the English language and a rapier wit which will make you laugh out loud multiple times through the book. His use of the letter format is subtle and elegant making his prose more active and engaged. This work stands shoulder to shoulder with the best books I have read in my life.
