Reading Material: The Last 20 Books I’ve Read

From last to first…

(Currently Reading) Bevin Alexander: How America Got It Right — The U.S. March to Military and Political Supremacy

20) Ric Flair: To Be the Man (A+: The best wrestling book ever, even better than Mick Foley’s “Have a Nice Day!.”)

19) Roger Ailes: You Are the Message (A: This a reread, but it’s always good to brush up on your communications skills)

18) Ann Coulter: High Crimes and Misdemeanors: The Case Against Bill Clinton (B: Lot of good info on the scandals in the Clinton administration, but it’s a little dry and incessant lobbying for impeachment feels a bit dated at this point)

17) (Can’t Say): (Can’t tell you the name of the book yet) (A-: This book is months away from being published and the author asked me to keep it quiet until it goes live. So you’ll have to wait)

16) Robert Leckie: The World Turned Upside Down the Story of the American Revolution (A: You’ll learn more about the American Revolution by reading Leckie than any history class you’ll ever take)

15) John Douglas & Mark Olshaker: The Anatomy of Motive: The FBI’s Legendary Mindhunter Explores the Key to Understanding and Catching Violent Criminals (B: It’s a good read and if you enjoyed other books by Douglas or on profiling, you’ll probably like this one, too)

14) Brian Anderson: Southpark Republicans (B: This is a good intro to the blogosphere, Southpark Republicans, and the “new face of conservatism.”)

13) Steven Pressfield: The Virtues Of War (A-: Not as good a piece of historical fiction as “Gates of Fire,” but what is? This was still a great read)

12) Milton & Rose Friedman: Free To Choose (B+: Good book, but I still think Sowell is better at breaking down economics issues)

11) Robert Leckie: Conflict: The History of the Korean War, 1950-53 (A: Only VDH is better at making history come alive than Leckie)

10) Mark Dubbin: Shadow Patriot (Unranked: Advertiser)

9) Thomas Sowell: Applied Economics: Thinking Beyond Stage One (B: Good stuff, but I liked Basic Economics better)

8) Ann Coulter: How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must): The World According to Ann Coulter (B-: If you’ve regularly read Ann’s columns for the last few years. A- if you haven’t)

7) Paul Cartledge: The Spartans: The World of the Warrior-Heroes of Ancient Greece, from Utopia to Crisis and Collapse (C: Good information, but very dry reading and poorly organized)

6) Steven Pressfield: Gates of Fire: An Epic Novel of the Battle of Thermopylae (A+: Incredible read, loved it, loved it, loved it)

5) Ed Rollins: Bare Knuckles and Back Rooms : My Life in American Politics (B: Great for political junkies)

4) Dick Morris: Power Plays: Win or Lose — How History’s Great Political Leaders Play the Game (A-: Great for political junkies)

3) P.J. O’Rourke: Peace Kills: America’s Fun New Imperialism (B-: Readable, but not’s P.J.’s best work)

2) Joe Scarborough: Rome Wasn’t Burnt in a Day : The Real Deal on How Politicians, Bureaucrats, and Other Washington Barbarians are Bankrupting America (A-: The real deal on how Congress wastes your money)

1) Scott Keith: Wrestling’s One Ring Circus: The Death of the World Wrestling Federation (A for wrestling fans)
