The Weathermen. The Symbionese Liberation Army. The FALN. The Black Liberation Army. The names seem quaint now, when not forgotten altogether. But there was a stretch of time in America, during the 1970s, when bombings by domestic underground groups were a daily occurrence. The FBI combated these groups and others as nodes in a single revolutionary underground dedicated to the violent overthrow of the American government.

What made the experience of listening to Days of Rage the most enjoyable?

This book is sort of a non-political look into a truly unique time in American history that is all but forgotten to anyone who didn't actually live through it. And, even then, most have forgotten. Really well written and read.

For decades environmentalists have told us that using fossil fuels is a self-destructive addiction that will destroy our planet. Yet by every measure of human well-being, from life expectancy to clean water to climate safety, life has been getting better and better. How can this be? The explanation is that we usually hear only one side of the story. We're taught to think only of the negatives of fossil fuels, their risks and side effects, but not their positives.

Agree or disagree with premise, you can't argue with the thoughtful way the author lays out a wildly opposing view to conventional wisdom. Great read. Went buy so fast I need to read it twice.
