Troublemaker? Moi? Hahahahaha! I swear, I don't seek trouble out; it seeks me out!! And I like things uncomplicated. Truly!!

Anyway, thanks for the sparkling review, MSK. I hope people buy the book, because people buying the book will help SOLO.

He's also a hooligan.

Concentric circles of concern radiate from Wellington, our nation's capital, and it's often difficult to tell whether that's because so many bureaucrats live there or because Lindsay does :-)

One insight I got out of this very interesting article, Michael, is that people often develop as adults based on making up for their failings as children. Linz 'was never mischievous as a child...he was absolutely perfect'. So now there is a strong desire to passionately let out feelings and not be squelched.

I was just the opposite. I was unruly, mischievous, undisciplined, and a juvenile delinquent (until I discovered books and school). And now I want to develop in myself and in the world order, politeness, and civility...the things I thumbed my nose at as a child. (My attitude to being a loud hellraiser who takes no offense lying down: Been there. Done that.)

In each case, the adult development was a good one. There was something missing in the child, and a balance needed to be struck or a more even development.

(But I bet in -both- cases, the child is still in there and comes out from time to time)

I bought the book.!
I think new comers have little information about the founders of this forum,
or maybe  not ready available unless they search for it.
Ciao

Great article, Mike! I, too, heartily recommend this book - it's a fine introduction to an extraordinary person. My only complaint is that it's too short; there's so much more that could be written about the man. (One of these days, I'd like to pen my own bio of the fellow.)

      How did that song go in Bye Bye, Birdie?
          "Why can't they be like we were:
            Perfect in every way?
            --- WHAT's the matter with...
            kids...
            To...
            day?"
       Linz is obviously still a 'kid.'

       Would that we all were such.

       We should all strive to re-attain that...recalcitrant, rebellious, obstinate, nay, obnoxious-to-'authority' (communal or 'official') framework-of-thinking Lindsay chronically advertises...WITH the 'rationale' he gives. --- Unfortunately, contrary to what Linz espouses, nay, clamors for, some of us, with 'prior' committments/obligations/ ('duties'?)  just don't have the time (make of that what you wish.)

       Elsewise, good post, Mike. Maybe too good. Dunno if I'll get the book (after your 'Classics Illustrated' summary; like, ya left anything out, maybe? Don't seem so.)

Wow!

Thanks for the informative review, even though I did read the book myself a few years ago.

I thought Linz was not transporting patients, but stiffs in London.

No pun intended ;-)

Thanks folks - all of you.

Linz sure does it up right, doesn't he?

John D - There's a whole lot left out - even the good stuff. The book is well worth it.

Ciro - Special thanks for buying it.

Michael

Can you imagine Linz with a .45 in hand (if he would put down the damn wine bottle)?

.45 IN his hand? Then he'd really look like he was at the headbanger's ball!

I just received a copy of Perigo! Politically Incorrect signed to me by both Deorah Coddington and Lindsay Perigo. For good measure, another copy was signed by both to Kat.

Also, I received another couple of copies of Free Radical that had my article in it.

I wish to thank both Ms. Coddington and Linz for these treasures.

Copies for me too?  Wow, that was very thoughtful and quite unexpected. Thank you, Linz.
