5.0 out of 5 stars The Renaissance Person's Renaissance Man, December 4, 2011
This review is from: The Thom Hartmann Reader (BK Currents) (Paperback)
Between my doing a radio show interviewing the Creme de la Creme, and founding and running conferences on brain research, positive psychology and the science of story, I've had more than my share of opportunities to talk with, listen to, read and get to know brain surgeons, rocket scientists and philosophers, from e-company founders like Craig of Craigslist and Arriana Huffington to Chomsky and Zinn, Greenwald and Kucinich.

Thom Hartmann stands out as unique for a few reasons. First is his breadth and DEPTH of knowledge. I've never met anyone who knows so much, exhaustively, in detail, about so many disparate areas as Thom Hartmann. Whether it's brain science, anthropological perspectives on indigenous Maori tribes, the latest take on the diagnosis and treatment of neurobehavioral continuum "disorders" like ADHD and Autism, 18th century constitutional history or the state of the economy in Argentina, Hartmann is brilliant in his depth of knowledge and his ability to integrate it.

Perhaps it's the integration that's so powerful. Perhaps it's being able to pull such far flung bits of information and putting them into new ways of seeing and understanding.

If you've read one or two of Thom's book, this is a great place to drink deeper from the well. if you've never read any Hartmann, wow, are you in for a major treat.

Once you get a taste, you'll surely, if you do media, want to check out his radio and TV shows as well. But unlike many radio and TV personalities, Hartmann started off as a writer and thinker and THEN moved to radio, then TV. His mind is amazing, but balanced with a great heart and soul too.

I know a lot of people who would love to see him as President of the USA, but he doesn't have the narcissism necessary and he's too smart to consider the soul sucking BS that inevitably comes with the job.

Buy the book. You'll be delighted you did and it will start you on a journey that has dozens of books that will keep on satisfying you.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'd Call This a Thom Hartmann Sampler, March 26, 2012

This review is from: The Thom Hartmann Reader (BK Currents) (Paperback)
Thom Hartmann is an interesting man on many levels. He never finished college. He has ADD. He has started several successful businesses. He and his wife, Louise, have been partners in various ventures including starting a school for troubled children in Vermont. The Hartmanns have devoted their life to helping others. In addition, Hartmann is a lifelong student. He has also written many books on many topics. This Thom Hartmann Reader gives you a glimpse into Hartmann's life and thoughts. Of the many intriguing experiences Thom relates in his book, the one that I keep coming back to is when he relates how he found 12 volumes on the life of Thomas Jefferson in a home he and his wife bought in Vermont and how that cache of books led Hartmann to write several books and articles. The find also deepened Hartmann's knowledge and interest in history.

This review is from: The Thom Hartmann Reader (BK Currents) (Paperback)
My husband is an avid fan of Thom Hartmann. He watches him each night on Free Speech TV. This book is so neat, as it is a compilation of many of Thom's ideas. You don't need to read the whole book--my husband just loved this gift. Another Prime item, delivered for free in two days to my door step. Great job, Amazon!

This book was very enjoyable and doesn't mince words on his opinions. Not everyone will agree with his philosophy and remarks but it does make you think.

This review is from: The Thom Hartmann Reader (BK Currents) (Paperback)
Thom Hartmann is a fountain of wisdom for those willing to peel back their illusions and look at the truth of where we are going as a human race. He is very well-versed in philosophy, political science, government, education, history, social studies, and religion. A must-read!

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Thom Hartmann is a very prolific writer and what he writes always makes you think. This is a great compilation where they took chapters out of many books and edited them so that you get the general idea without having to read all the books.
I would recommend this book for anyone and everyone.

Great book and a great author. Those of you with a Progressive political position need to read and listen to Mr. Hartmann. He's the only author/radio personality that tells it like it is.
