Overall Tucker has a style that is much to pleased with himself, I believe that he laughs at all his own jokes... a lot! This is not a terrible condition if you are actually funny; and sometimes Tucker is, but just sometimes. There is a great deal of useful information buried in this book, I like the idea of turning up the water heater to 130 degrees (it does make a difference). I also took his advice on giving up the shaving foam for a splash of baby oil (after a week my face feels better then it has in thirty years). There is also some very interesting insight into some elements of libertarian thought that I had not considered or at least not considered enough.
In all my lists of "Libertarian Fiction" I never saw Garet Garrett; but I am interested in giving him a try after Tucker's reviews and comments. I am the son of an inventor; and I have a great deal of difficulty with Tucker's views on intellectual property. His arguments against IP however are both strong and solid and I feel now that I have to give this some serious thought. I will probably also pick up "Against Intellectual Property" of course that would mean trying to find a copy of "Justifying Intellectual Property " for under $50 as well. I do like authors that bring me new ideas and new books to read. There is a lot of good information and interesting thoughts in this book, you just need to do a lot of digging to find those buried treasures. If you are a free thinker, or already have a Libertarian bent this is an interesting read, but it is not for the un-initiated.
Each chapter is a short and simple discussion of a particular marvel of the free market, or a discussion of the problems with government.
I am also one of those who read it for free at mises.org, but then had to buy it so that I could give it to friends.
If you want a fun book on economics or our daily way of life then this is, without a doubt, the book for you.
"Words are delectable. Especially when they go down the mind's throat smoothly- without the harsh fizz of soda pop. Jeffrey Tucker's Bourbon for Breakfast: living outside the statist quo is the POM wonderful of books."
