A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing he cares about more than his own personal safety; is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

I've always thought The Mystery of Capital by De Soto was a pretty good read.

It's quite obvious since I'm the most well-read person on here.

Grab a list of the "great books" curriculum. Read it - in the original.

Most of what I read now are bizarre foreign books or really weird business and motivational books. Sometimes I pick up fun things like "Better Golf" but not too often.

The Savage Nation

I'm currently reading syndicated talk show host Michael Savage's The Savage Nation . It's very informative and well-written, but senisitive reader's beware, it's not PC at all, which is part of it's appeal. He tells it like it is, and it's full of humor.

About von Clausewitz, many have argued that his centre of gravity theory no longer applies to current warfare. What do you think Russ?

I'm not an expert where I can really comment, but his military philosophy shaped warfare for a few centuries, and historically, is important.

What do you think?

Sun Tzu is my favorite because his Taoist perspective is relevant to everything.
