Good idea. Too many these books these days read like a long-form magazine articles (or blog posts) that have been stuffed with fluff to get to a book-length.



God, yes. I still can't get over "the no asshole rule". The entire book makes literally two points: "Don't be an asshole and don't tolerate assholes". It's stuffed with so many factoids and fallacies to belabour those points that I'm still mad at the author for wasting 6 hours of my day.


So the author was... kind of an asshole?


No, not at all, just terribly verbose and opportunistic, I guess.
