Our Kind of Wild Man
on May 15, 2013
Ragedly composed, and expressed, these are the strengths of this unguarded disorderly passionate book. Of course we need Cheny, Bush, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz on the gallons, look what they have done!
Barett puzzles the reader as he wanders through his life - why is he telling us all this? Then he starts in on the psychopaths, our leaders. Haven't we heard all this before? Must he detail every insult and his responses to his critics? Well why not? He selflessly recommends the more calm work of Griffin and others and restrained himself enough to get a PHD. Let's welcome our allies and Barrett is an ally, we need him, he says it, says what needs saying.
Barrett discusses folklore, myths, legends and he has read and reports on many books. His exuberance and unrestrained mouthing off improbably coupled with careful, well studied points of view make page after page interesting. God bless those who hire, publish and repeat Kevin Barrett.
