No Marriage
No Marriage by Jon Hertzog

Since discussions about marriage arise in this and other freethought forums I lurk, I performed a Google search and stumbled across this little gem recently. http://www.NoMarriage.com I bought and read the e-book. The author shows little kindness to American women, calling them spoiled and worse. He argues, justifiably, that a man sho... (See the whole review)

A Long Short War - The Postponed Liberation of Iraq
A Long Short War - The Postponed Liberation of Iraq by Christopher Hitchens

To my knowledge, I am the first SOLOist to change my mind about the war in Iraq. My unease with my anti-war position had been going on for some time and a discussion with SOLOist Joe Rowlands when he last visited New Zealand was crucial. But I have to say, this book was what really did it. If you thought Lindsay Perigo hated Saddam and the anti-war... (See the whole review)

The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money and Power
The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money and Power by Daniel Yergin

This book is a model of what good 'industry biography' should be. The author of 'The Commanding Heights' outlines the story of oil - black gold - and how it became the commodity that moves the world. The story Yergin tells is colourful, authoritative and - quite literally - earth-shaking; it is the story of the rise and development of capitalism an... (See the whole review)
