  1. This is one of those books I constantly see people buying and I’m somewhat curious about but not quite sure I want to commit to actually reading. Hard to explain. There are wildly varying opinions on it and im not sure honestly which opinions to trust. It seems like the extreme right wing view this book as a validation of their draconian world view while the left views this book more like a sociological study as a glimpse into the mindset of the blue collar resentment that led to the election of Trump. Anyway, I look forward to to reading your thoughts on this book.

    • I thought listening to it might help because I was skeptical of it for the same reasons. It is read by the author (and, at the very least, that means there is some accent snooping I can do ;))
