Read full description of the books:
This is a damned interesting and amusing book.
It's a dictionary in the same vein as Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary. It ruminates on the meaning of words and phrases rather than sets the meaning in stone. The author makes it very clear that this is his opinion and not The Truth.
Here's an example:
ERROR Error is the result of a particular human strength: the ability to act in an unprogrammed, that is illogical, that is conscious, manner, by thinking and communicating unconventional thoughts. To err is a sign of intelligence.
As you can see, this goes against common thought which regards error as equivalent to stupidity or even evil.
The book slashes at what we believe, questions how in tune with the world we are. Every ideology whether capitalism, Marxism or neo-conservatism is given a brass knuckle's worth of thought. Indeed, thanks to this book and others of Mr. Saul's I discovered how little difference there is between them.
If you want your mind jarred, if you want a fresh perspective, if you just want a good laugh, I highly recommend this book.
