  1. Just a FYI - the author of the Gandhi book on your list is my highly-religious, Army colonel uncle. Not someone you'd want to support, but considering there's plenty of people with good ideas and other batshit stuff, I won't particularly condemn it. I don't know much about the book, never read it or anything, but considering what I know of my uncle from a couple arguments over religion, I'd be a bit skeptical.

  2. If I refused to read books written by the religious, I'd have a lot less to read. I'd always prefer a solid atheist-centric take on any subject, but your uncle is the leading anti-Gandhi political commentator, and I found him interesting when he was on Penn and Teller's Bullshit.

  3. Oh yeah, I know. I do recall my uncle saying he was an atheist (in what sense, I have no idea - possibly something like this: http://praxeology.net/unblog03-04.htm#02). I have far more issues with the army anyway.

  4. Have you read (or do you want to read) volumes one and two of the history of sexuality? Just curious.

  5. I have volumes 1 and 2, but I haven't read them yet. They keep getting displaced in my hierarchy of books to read, so they're there.

  6. What did you think about the first couple of volumes of 'History of Sexuality', because I couldn't really understand them. I'm not sure if it was the french to english translation, but the wording just didn't seem to make much sense.

    Also, let me know how 'Better Angels of Our Nature Goes'. I'm mildly interested in reading it, but not sure.

  7. Gold: See the comment above: "I have volumes 1 and 2, but I haven't read them yet. They keep getting displaced in my hierarchy of books to read, so they're there."
