Each chapter is short and to the point. Its a survey of great idea and a great starting point.
If you are inclined to liberty then get the book.
There is only simple examples and theories, one sided explanation. The author is avoid some very basic but hard questions. either he does not see them or just avoided them because he does not have an answer.
He stated every "trade" benefit both parties. so if a trade happened, that is fair. He does not mention "Monopoly" "price fixing" etc. To him, those things does not exist. his answer is pretty much "you should be happy you can still buy it."
He said we should not be regulated on how a person chose to build his house. What if somebody's house threaten my safety since I am next door?
He also complained about tax and law. What is the alternative, No law? Everyone should be free to do whatever they want to in a small group. What if a group decide hunt other groups as slaves? Is that OK, if not, who will stop them?
Then he has problem with democracy: Because it "encourage people to have opinion on things they have nothing to do with." Then what is his solution for this society?
In one paragraph he insist "Rich people are not advantaged, they can do whatever they want with their money!" Then next section is all about "How rich people use their money to hire lobbyists buying up Washington to make laws that benefit them." Come on!
I guess the real question I have here is: how does libertarianism understand human society as a whole, are we really individuals has nothing to do with each other? Or we have connections. He make it sound like we can live in a vacuum of isolation. But we all know that is not true.
