has anyone read this?
i have heard about it in passing but never paid it much attention. it just popped up in a podcast i was listening to and asked the wife if she has ever heard of it and apparently we have it in our closet(not enough room in the house for all the books we have)
i think i am going to dig it out and dive in. its getting cold out. clocks get set back an hour in a couple weeks. i usually burn through a few books between now and april or so.
any comments are appreciated.

It’s worth a read. It changed my life, I think. I was young but I think it still holds up. I think I’ll give it a re-read.

Ah, the myth of the superman who actually IS an island...
well, nothing wrong with quality, honor and self assurance... but there is something wrong, in my opinion, with rank elitism , prejudice and abandoning your less able brothers to fate.
Reality is a tad more nuanced... and ol ' Ann only saw one side of things... in my opinion, of course.
Well worth reading, though ... the movie with Greg Peck is funny.
