Give a Book for the Holidays

Even if you don't celebrate the holidays, or exchange gifts. Specifically, give this book:

This is by far the best book I've read this century. Granted, I'm the most unavid reader you've probably ever known. I've only read one other book this century and that one just squeaked through the gate in 2001: George Carlin's Napalm and Silly Putty.

A big shout out to Minstrel Boy for setting me up with this highly entertaining read. Since the book is basically all about wars and atrocities and the occasional genocide, it would have been uncomfortable reading were it not for the frequent humor of Bob Harris. On a couple of occasions I laughed aloud and it takes a lot to get me to that point. (Carlin can do it pretty easily.)

So, I highly recommend this book. If I could afford it, I'd buy a copy for everyone I know -- especially the Republicans. (Actually, I probably could afford to buy a copy for all the Republicans I know.)
