Editorial Reviews


"These are magnificent aphorisms. They had me at the edge of my seat. While reading them, I kept varying in my reaction between, "This is beautiful" to "This is magnificent" to "Wait, I've got to send this one to xyz" to "Why didn't I think of that one." Jakub sure has a way with a word. Well, with lots of words. I urge you to BUY THIS BOOK. You will thank me for this advice for a long long time, and then you will give these pithy insights to your children and grandchildren." - Walter E. Block, Harold E. Wirth Eminent Scholar Endowed Chair and Professor of Economics, Joseph A. Butt, S.J. College of Business

"Looking for a slogan to put on a t-shirt? A succinct expression of an important idea to embody in an Internet meme? Some libertarian wisdom to share with a friend? Deepen your insight and augment your wit with this collection of droll and thought-provoking aphorisms. Jakub Wisniewski deserves our thanks for capturing so many crucial insights so pointedly and succinctly!" - Gary Chartier, Professor of Law and Business Ethics, La Sierra University

"Wisniewski's Aphorism is a delight. I had a stressful deadline lastweek and I took a break every few hours to read another section of thebook. The word play and wit never failed to entertain and the aphorismsallowed me to return to my own writing with a sense of being refreshed.Highly recommended." - Wendy McElroy, author of "The Art of Being Free"

"Jakub's book is a pure delight, a collection of shareable quotations that sum up the case for a free society. They are often counterintuitive but ring true on reflection. In writing them and collecting them, he has done a great service for the cause of human liberation." - Jeffrey Tucker, Chief Liberty Officer of

From the Back Cover

Liberty is an elusive, multifaceted concept, whose understanding requires investigating its content from a variety of perspectives. At the same time, it is the defining feature of human nature, whose appreciation and exploration is the key to material, intellectual, and moral progress of our civilization. Thus, there is no more perennially urgent educational task than spreading the message of liberty as widely as possible. It is my hope that in the context of bringing this task to completion, the terseness of an aphorism can complement the comprehensiveness of a philosophical treatise and the poignancy of a novel. In other words, it is my hope that the message of liberty - the pith of our life - is well suited to be conveyed in a literary form that, at its best, is as pithy as it is lively.
