The Power of Now
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

At the encouragement of someone who has in the past shown interest in Objectivism, I read The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle.  While I did not consider the reading a complete waste of time, I did consider the author so profoundly wrong about so many things that I cannot honestly recommend the book.  His thesis that "mind identification" serves as th...

Southwest Passage
Southwest Passage by Lamar Muse

Some fans of Rand have said that if _Atlas Shrugged_ is ever made into a movie that it should be "updated"--i.e., the passenger train industry should be replaced by passenger airplanes. I think it would quite foolish to tamper with _Atlas_ in such a way. It could also be said that the story of "Atlas Shrugged with Airplanes" has already been writte... (See the whole review)

The A.B.C. Murders
The A.B.C. Murders by Agatha Christie

For a mystery which was written decades ago, "The A.B.C. Murders" is surprisingly modern in its sophistication.  People are being murdered by the letters of their names with the murders announced days in advance.  Is it a madman?  A patronizing criminal mastermind?  Agatha Christie delivers an intriguing ride of twists and turns.
