    4.5 out of 5 stars 729

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.

This audio book, like most of Hitchens???s work, is packed full of gems. I wish he had narrated it, but I am thankful that he wrote it. It generally takes me about ten times of listening to an audio book to completely absorb it, but this is quite easy to do while running, driving, or working out. As with much of Hitchens???s work, if you do absorb it, your mind will be expanded and you will be better off for it. Hitchens really gets you thinking.

Let???s hope that ???Love Poverty and War??? comes out on Audio soon.
