Witticisms from a man who gives no quarter to political correctness. If you're a Hitchens fan, this is a nice addition to your library.

McCullough is the best. Really interesting from two perspectives: (1) history of air flight,(2) insights into a unique period of time.
And, of course, Wilbur wright. .it's a great read

How we miss Christopher Hitchens.

This is a nice compendium of quotations, arranged by subject. The project was apparently commenced while Hitchens was still alive and had, according to foreword material, some degree of blessing from him, although no direct participation. I highly recommend it for those who don't have time to read the larger books, essays, articles from which these passages are extracted. However, the real power of Hitchens mind and knowledge is found in his longer works, and cherry picking bon-mots, however entertaining, is a pale infusion of the real thing.

In e-reader format, the structure is a bit unwieldy, as one cannot simply jump from subject to subject by heading, but is constrained to page through to get to items of particular interest.

As much as I enjoyed reading other works of Hitchens, (e.g. God is not Great, Portable Atheist) this book would not fall into those categories. It was often dull and obnoxiously opinionated without his usual clever wit. This may be the selected quotes were out of context or the author's selection, or possibly both.

He was a shooting star! I'm sorry he was lost in our atmosphere and that he's gone.
