    Blockchain Democracy: Technology, Law and the Rule of the Crowd []  2020-7-9 19:5

    William Magnuson, author of Blockchain Democracy: Technology, Law and the Rule of the Crowd, is a rare bird indeed and probably needs to be given protected species status. He is a professor of law and a formidable scholar who writes a clear, vivid, highly readable prose as he tutorials us through the serpentine, troubling, sometimes criminal and always fascinating globe of blockchain and gnuson, a Harvard trained lawyer and former journalist who chop his teeth in the Rome Bureau of the Washington Post, brings a scholar’s severity and a writer’s dexterity to bear on matters of existential importance to anyone who cares about private freedom or worries about the fate of our democratic institutions. The effect is a book that often reads like a thriller even as it passes muster as a work of serious, thoroughly researched scholarship. It may read like fiction at times, simply because it is so well written, but it is driven by a startling set of facts that narrate a real story of ingenuity, crime, money, justice, greed, idealism and the manifold ironies that complicate our human lives and turn us into such interesting, and sometimes such unseemly, om begin to finish William Magnuson strives for and attains an unusual degree of objectivity. He declines to take an ideological stance and endeavors to consider every problem from the perspective of the different individuals who populate his text. His tone tends to be judicious rather than combative, an approach that creates ample room in which to conduct a serious and even contentious debate on the nature of political freedom and the very definition of democracy itself. Blockchain Democracy is a strong work by a superb writer on a difficult and necessary subject. I recommend it highly.

    Blockchain Democracy: Technology, Law and the Rule of the Crowd []  2020-7-9 19:5

    Magnuson is the blockchain tour tutorial you didn't know you needed. I'm guessing I was not alone in wondering why people obtain so excited about bitcoin. So a lot of explanations start with "distributed ledgers" and "cryptography" before explaining why you should care. It didn't seem worth the gnuson's writing makes learning about blockchain the opposite of effort - this is a fun book. The story starts with history's greatest bank robbery and just keeps moving. The narrative follows the history of blockchain and bitcoins, explaining how it came to be seen as a redeemer for the fallen promise of the internet. The internet was supposed to distribute power but has instead made centralized tech behemoths: bitcoin was a shot at gnuson uncovers this fresh religion of modern society, introducing us to its apostles and betrayers, its evangelists and skeptics, showing us how it will continue to transform nations around the world. This is a must read if you wish to understand how blockchain will shape our society, and how society may need to shape this book!!

    The Law of Democracy: Legal Structure of the Political Process (University Casebook Series) []  2020-7-13 20:6

    Its a casebook. If you're here, it because you've probably been assigned this book by a professor and don't have much choice in the matter. Its not the worst casebook I've been assigned, the organization is nice, they do a amazing job with the notes after the cases, and the editors have done a amazing job with editing the cases so they are manageable (Citizens United is only like 21 pages).

    The Democracy of Objects []  2020-1-27 23:42

    A bold test at revisiting ontology, but with a seeming attention to the social dimension of such conceptions, hence the "Democracy" of Objects. This is a beautiful central reading of the newer Object Oriented Ontology movement.

    Bryant's ver of an object-oriented ontology is sharp, clear, and lucid. The chapters on "Virtual Proper Being" and "The Interior of Objects" are especially compelling. Welcome to the future of philosophy.

    The Democracy of Objects []  2020-1-27 23:42

    I first became acquainted with object-oriented ontology through Graham Harman. Harman's work, however, always seemed a bit too rigid, almost atemporal, with objects "receding" to the point of becoming, as Bryant describes, "vacuums." Bryant's metaphysics, which he calls "onticology," smooths out a lot of the rough edges of Harman's system by invoking Deleuze's concept of the virtual...but with a catch. Rather than seeing the virtual as a sort of predifferentiated continuum, Bryant conceptualizes the virtual as bound up within each object, comprising its "substance." It still hasn't sold me completely on object-oriented ontology(I lean more toward process philosophy, though I think object-oriented ontology has valuable insights to contribute), but it definitely advances the conversation.

    The Democracy of Objects []  2020-1-27 23:42

    This review generally attempts to give an outline of what this book aims to do and why it is generally done well. I am not an academic; I read most of this items for purely recreational r those who are not familiar with the context of this book, it situates itself within the group of Object-Oriented Ontology (OOO) which makes it affiliated with the speculative realist "movement." While folks who fall under that umbrella often differ in more ways than they converge, they all share a rejection of 'correlationism': the idea that we humans can only ever have some access to the correlation of thinking and being. For Bryant and others in the OOO camp (other authors here contain Timothy Morton, Ian Bogost, and Graham Harman)this manifests in the primary assertion that all things are objects. This may seem like a counter-intuitive (or out-right wrong) thesis, but in this book both the arguments versus correlationism and for the primacy of objects are exceptionally clear and yant names his particular brand of OOO "onticology." While the book has to be read in full in order to understand what his ontology entails, a few things [email protected]#$%! from other formulations. The first is the use of Deleuze. Bryant has already written an perfect book on Deleuze (Difference and Givenness), and here he integrates Deleuze's concept of the virtual into an understanding of objects. Unlike other authors well-versed in Deleuze, Bryant accepts much of Peter Hallward's criticisms of Deleuze (see Out of This World) and thus re-positions the virtual into what he calls "virtual proper-being" which can be brutally summarized as the potentiality of an object to become other than its local manifestations (while still being that object). In this way, Bryant argues that some objects must be independent in order to have any causal efficacy of their own, and this requires the rejection of Deleuze's "monistic virtual continuum." As Bryant states "...the claim that the virtual is true is not the claim that the virtual is a potential being, but rather the claim that the virtual is always the virtuality or potentiality of a being or substance." Bryant's acc of the virtual in Deleuze may be controversial, but the argument is coherent and persuasive (It should be noted that he doesn't spend a lot of time tearing down other's positions, this discussion is more used to differentiate his position in contrast with Deleuze's own).The other influence that signifies a novel contribution is that of Luhmann. Using Luhmann (along with more familiar points of reference on these subjects such as Maturana and Varela)Bryant adapts concepts of autopoiesis, allopoiesis and operational closure in a novel method to his ontology of objects. The method Bryant explores these concepts is original, and he has to create some serious changes to the aforementioned theories in order for them to work with onticology. All of this gives onticology the tools to be able to explain why and how objects can persist in their existences and structure through time as relatively independent dynamic systems. The chapters dealing with these problems were the most illuminating for me, and as someone who has read a small Luhmann, they are refreshingly concise in their presentation.Other less prominent resources contain Jacques Lacan (but not in the method one would think) and Bruno Latour along with Graham Harman. This does not mean, however, that this book is just a hodge-podge of various philosophical theories; this book is no Being and Time but it certainly makes several original contributions. Bryant's fresh articulation of "substance" was particularly salient in my opinion. If I had any gripes it would be that I thought his discussions of Badiou were a bit lacking. This is a little part of the book but I feel that any parallels Bryant draws are purely ogical; it seems he is partially aware of this but I still do not think it added very much.Overall, this book is definitely worth reading. For me the true force of Bryant's project is the method it seams to take the most useful aspects of the "object-oriented" and "process" camps of speculative realism and synthesize them into what is a very robust ontology (though still very much part of OOO). I particularly recommend this book to people intrigued by Continental Philosophy but who assume that it spends too much time interpreting figures and not innovating in its own right and often falls short of the "clear writing/argument" criterion. I'm not saying these charges are always justified or applicable, but I certainly think that Bryant's book avoids them and provides readers with fresh concepts to use.

    I'm still skeptical about several of the core premises (the ontology of objects does not handle boundedness well, imho) but the work itself is masterful and clear, even to philosophical novices. Highly recommended.

    The Next Revolution: Popular Assemblies and the Promise of Direct Democracy []  2020-1-24 22:27

    Enjoyed the book. Lots of ideas to think about for imagining a fresh method of organizing ourselves economically and socially. Don't have to endorse all the ideas in here, but it's amazing to have people thinking like Murray does in his book about how things can be done differently that would let everyone to participate more fairly.

    Einstein said, "The globe is a risky put to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it." Murray Bookchin has suggestions for doing something about it, and they're outlined in this fresh collection of chin's respond to out-of-control capitalism, ecological crisis, and financial collapse is a fresh politics that he calls "communalism" -- or at the practical level, "libertarian municipalism." This is not a rehash of som or anarchism, which Bookchin criticizes, giving multiple reasons for their failures. Bookchin, although a radical leftist, does not shy away from the need for organization in any fresh system of ese nine essays are dense with ideas, but very readable. The Next Revolution is a welcome addition to the impressive oeuvre of Murray Bookchin.

    The Next Revolution: Popular Assemblies and the Promise of Direct Democracy []  2020-1-24 22:27

    Murray Bookchin was one of the most original thinkers of the twentieth century. His books influenced major political theorists like Noam Chomsky and Herbert Marcuse. Those who have followed his work will welcome this fresh book, which brings together fresh writing and seminal essays that would otherwise be scattered in libraries around the world. Readers less familiar with Bookchin's work should search this essay collection an accessible introduction to his radical but timely e essays elaborate a fresh politics for direct democracy on the municipal level via forms designed to work in a globalized world. Bookchin is no blue-sky theorist. He goes into detail on the measures required to save our planet and safeguard human rray Bookchin was an impassioned and inspiring writer, and his voice rings out in these pages. He’s feisty in critiquing the muddled thinking behind past failures of leftist movements for social change. He’s fiery in attacking the rapacious ethos of grow-or-die capitalism. He’s forceful in his ysis of the errors of Communism, anarchism and som. In expounding his own theories he's a hard-nosed rationalist. As he ventures into the uncharted waters of a fresh politics, he is energetic and confident despite the lack of models or paradigms.I found the two introductions very helpful, too, in giving an overview of Bookchin's political philosophy. They are well written and lively and offer some biographical tidbits. I was particularly taken by the photo of the nine-year-old Bookchin as a road agitator starting on the path that would lead him to become a respected advocate of social ese essays form a very practical guidebook for our social and ecological survival – stimulating reading for anyone concerned about the future of the species.

    The Next Revolution: Popular Assemblies and the Promise of Direct Democracy []  2020-1-24 22:27

    This is just a collection of essays by Mr. Bookchin, some of which are very repetitive. On occasion, there are some true clear and profound thoughts about capitalism or the environment, but for the most part, it's the same old dialectic this, and maximum program that. He's a amazing writer, there's no doubt about that though. I'm also concerned that he lacks experience in actual municipal politics, for a person advocating it as the basic governmental unit. Furthermore, he spends most of the book (or essays) fighting off other radicals. He lived in America, he should have spent more time relating his theories to people in the center who are looking for a path forward, not fighting other marxists. His arguments that any type of revolution (even peaceful/non-violent) rather than reform to the republic/federalist system were ineffective.

    The Next Revolution: Popular Assemblies and the Promise of Direct Democracy []  2020-1-24 22:27

    This is an exceptional book of essays by the late Murray Bookchin, a self-educated philosopher and activist. In this collection, Bookchin wants to address the question of how to make a more egalitarian, ecological society without sucbing to the old-school, Marxist paradigm, in which power has invariably been wielded by a centralized bureaucratic elite, or the anarchist model that eschews power altogether. Bookchin argues that the latter model has failed to make meaningful political change, while the former never really invests power with the people. Instead, he proposes a third way: a neighborhood assembly model in which initiatives originate at the grassroots and candidates are limited to the municipal level, so that they are always accountable and recallable. He envisions a slow challenge to centralized authority as activists take more power on the neighborhood level, and then municipal level, all the while creating an educated citizenry that is able to build a power base that slowly erodes the power of the a time when the left is struggling for a voice and when the ecological crisis demands action, this book reminds us that voting for a liberal or even sot presidential candidate is not enough: only when people renew the amazing found tradition of neighborhood assemblies that expression in the Paris Commune, and ancient Athens, will citizens have true political control, instead of just rubber stamping what their leaders do. The book includes a unbelievable forward by the amazing science fiction writer Ursula K. Le Guin, and an perfect introduction to Bookchin’s life and work by the editors. The essays themselves address various topics, such as how individual communities would confederate, what went wrong with the anarchist model in Spain and why this model, which Bookchin calls “Communalism” makes historical sense, which create them simple to read in sequence or individually. A must-read for everyone looking for a method forward.

    What was amazing about this book was that it actually created me think. The essays are very articulate and offer true solutions to the issues of political organization in an increasingly alienating capitalist society. I was part of Occupy Wall Road in Fresh York and one of the things that struck me about the movement was how it failed to result lasting political change here. It was a amazing idea at the time, but we weren't able to transfer all that energy into a political structure that could create the interests of the 99% known in government. In this book, Bookchin shows a method to empower people and let them to be direct advocates for their communities. This is a political tactic called libertarian municipalism. I don't know if it will be simple to implement, but the essays create a compelling case for why we should try. The introduction is well-written and gives a amazing summary of Bookchin's life and how he came to his ideas. Most people know him for his anarchist writings (this was how I first heard of him) but in these essays he transcends anarchism and talks about the importance of finding alternative solutions that are more empowering to people and more community oriented. Overall, I recommend this book for anyone interested in expanding their activism with fresh theoretical perspectives.

    Nice to see Bookchin’s work getting more attention with a number of articles lately linking Bookchin’s philosophy to the Kurdish freedom warriors and their independence movement in Rojava. According to the Fresh York Times and other news Bookchin’s work was read by the leader of the Kurdish independence movement, Abdullah Ocalan, and has influenced the societal model that the Kurds are trying to create. Their towns are adopting a totally democratic and grass-roots approach to power-sharing, women’s rights, ecology + ethnic inclusiveness in government which is very cool and unusual for the Middle East to say the least. Amazing bunch of essays that helps explain exactly what is going on over there in terms of Kurdish vision and why this model could be instructive to social activists here.

    Some of the essays written after 2000 (when Bookchin created his break with organized anarchism) create a few amazing points, but aren't ideologically or practically sound. The essays from the 90s are largely consistent and create some perfect arguments in favor of direct democracy and democratic confederalism. His critique of the mistakes created by anarchists during the Spanish Civil battle should be needed reading for all anarchists and syndicalists. Bookchin has a special perspective and doesn't idealize past anarchist movements like a lot of us tend to do. Some of his ideas could likely lay the groundwork for a successful libertarian society in our not-too-distant future. This book, and most of his work from the 60s to the end of the 90s, is definitely worth reading for anyone interested in libertarian solutions to social problems.

    Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy []  2020-6-10 20:55

    This is typical Andy McCarthy excellence. Known for his impeccable research and ability to support the reader connect the dots, McCarthy lays out the chilling failures of the West to fully understand (willfully or blindly) the ongoing Islamic revolution in the Middle East and its meanings for Western culture. He has every right in this book, based on his past writings, to say "I told you so". Even the casual observer, Muslim, Christian or Jew needs to read about the path being followed in the Middle East and the West's naive perceptions.

    Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy []  2020-6-10 20:55

    As a life-long conservative and a forty year plus Republican, I have long recognized that too few Republicans and conservatives were and still are willing to challenge former President George W. Bush's foreign policy blunders; policy decisions that are being furthered by President Barack Obama. President Bush's effort to implant democracy in the Muslim and the Muslim-Arab globe were bound to fail for reasons McCarthy aptly info in this book. President Obama's toppling of largely secular-leaning dictators (albeit brutal dictators) is helping to further the most extreme interpretation of Islam in the Middle East and North Africa. Bush and Obama have replaced one dictatorship with another far more risky form of sharia-compliant dictatorship. If readers are interested in apprehending the perils of these misguided policies, listen to this book.

    We Americans know that the globe would be a safer, cleaner, and more prosperous put if all nations adopted our democratic values of freedom, equality, and representative government. So when we see people in far-off locations rising up and throwing off their despotic rulers we automatically believe the uprising is a democratic movement. Andrew McCarthy shows how delusional this reactive faith is. He shows how the much-heralded Arab Spring was not a democratic movement; that, in fact, democracy is incompatible within the context of Islamic culture. We cannot impose democracy on Islamic cultures either by military force or wishful thinking. It's critical that we understand that truth; McCarthy's book is the put to start.

    Andrew McCarthy, who prosecuted the Blind Sheikh for the first Globe Trade Center bombing, has created himself an authority on the politics of modern Islam. And what he tells you isn't what you read in the NY Times. His is a rather sobering view of what's event in Turkey, North Africa, and the Mid East.

    This book is right up-to-date on current happenings in the Middle East. I could not place the book down until I completed it. The author is well informed and, as I recall, was the prosecutor on the case involving the 1993 bombing of the Globe Trade Center. I agree with the suggested sub-title "The Illusion of Islamic Democracy" in that there is a lot more involved in democracy than just casting a vote in an election.

    Andrew McCarthy hit the nail right on the head. How can we be so desperate so as to completely miss the smoke screen. The Islamic radicals (we are so afraid to call them what they are) may be fewer in number, but they are the ones that keep the power. Why is it so hard for us to understand that the Western mind and the Islamic mind is world's apart. We pride ourselves on separation of "church" and state. To them "church" and state are one...the state is there for fulfill their religion. We are so politically correct. Wake up North America. What we have so long cherished, indeed, the reason that we came about is being seriously challenged. We are the proverbial frog in the heating water. Listen to McCarthy!

    McCarthy, whose background informs well of his intimate knowledge of the material, relates the background and current situation within "radical Islam" and gives doented truth concerning our government's lack of understanding of its growth in the Middle East. Additionally, he clearly explains why democracy is in itself a wandering star that leads to uncomfortable destinations when it is used as the sole source of navigation upon the seas of international relations.

    One of the best, fully explained books of the old school of thinking for being successful in every avenue of your life. While it is written using the male ver of thinking from the 1920's-30's, the guidance still holds real today. If you aren't focused on what you want, if you aren't disciplined everyday to think on what you want, if you don't set goals for accomplishment, if you don't chart your coarse and hold track of what you are doing, you will never achieve any is book breaks it down for you, in steps, and focuses with examples to present what works and what doesn't.Hill knew and had private access to those who were the world's richest men of their day. He spent his life researching each of them and knew what their private habits were. He charts them in this book. He outlines what works. If you wish a quick, simple read, this is not the book for you. If, however, you are willing to take your time, plot your coarse and take full guidance from the Master himself, then use this as a tutorial and develop your own Mastermind Group and thrive.

It is the excellent tutorial for a Master Mind group. The introduction is all about what a Master Mind is and how it works. The 1st chapter explains the Master Mind in further detail and how to formulate your Definite Chief Aim. Every person who is serious about succeeding in life and reaching their potential should study this book time and time again.

    Law of the Die []  2020-1-23 19:7

    This is Tom's 3rd book of the trilogy series that began with "In Pursuit of Weightlessness" then on to "The Essence of Lightness" and now with this publication "Law of the Die". They all deal with elements of private transformation and self-improvement. In this installment the author deals with the challenging aspect of life in its seemingly random nature of happenings in our lives. Is there a method to hedge our bet so to speak in these matters. Tom suggests there is by using the Law of the Die. Briefly this involves influencing luck thru the exercise of options carefully chosen in a particular direction or purpose and then selected to be exercised by the roll of the die. This is all explained in an entertaining story fashion with intriguing characters some of which continue on from the previous books. It is not important to have read the previous two books to understand the concept in the Law of the Die but I would highly recommend it. I have read all 3. Tom's books are challenging and create you think. That's a amazing thing!

    The Law of Moses []  2020-1-15 23:32

    Welp. I was looking for a amazing tear jerker and this book has a ton of 5-star reviews. A lot of have mentioned how heartbreaking it is. This is clearly a case of it-must-be-just-me. I’m probably emotionally stunted or my tear ducts may be extremely clogged because I didn’t come close to shedding a tear. There are parts that are quite sad, but I felt detached from the story for the most part. I think the fact that I listened to the audio book may be to blame, but I’ll obtain to that in a ses @#$%ed me off through at least the first half of the book. He is such a complete toward Georgia, and all the while she’s like, “You just insulted me and repeatedly told me to leave you alone, but I know deep down you love me.” I have no patience for heroines who act like doormats, but I wound up admiring Georgia’s resilience and huge heart. I enjoyed the second half more than the e story seems really s-l-o-w. It’s possible my opinion of the book may be distorted by the disappointing quality of the audio book. Tavia Gilbert’s vocal performance is phenomenal. She tells the story in an extremely authentic and effective way, which makes JD Jackson’s narration even more lacking in comparison. It just falls flat, and he takes such long pauses between sentences that I kept checking to create sure my application hadn’t quit. I finally decided that it’s just his style. In the end, I looked forward to Georgia’s chapters and tolerated recommendation for potential readers is to read the book rather than listening to the audio.

    My name is Kelly Foster. I'm not a huge name blogger. I'm not even a small name blogger. I'm just a girl in Colorado that loves to read, and only one of 600 and something reviews thus e first Amy Harmon book I read was Making Faces. It was amazing. The Law of Moses was promoted BIG TIME, so I followed the promos, read the synopsis.....repeatedly....the few authors I follow gave their reviews. This book has been sitting on my kindle since release day. I knew it was going to be an ugly cry book, but I wasn't sure how, so I waited. I was a coward. But.....in this craziness that is life.....If God in heaven needs to obtain a notice to you and you just will not listen, He will use your passion, your entertainment, whatever it takes to the point across. And. He. did. Through this is story is a romance, a mystery, super natural-ish....And Heavy...in an awesome way...without the F bomb and descriptive scenes. In the latest 5 years, I've read hundreds of books. I have never read a book like this. I realize I'm giving nothing away in regards to the story itself, but there are almost 700 other reviews to do that. I actually feel kind of lost and all over the put right now.Every now and then, an event, a movie, a news story, a BOOK, will quite literally change your life. This story changed me...So, for that, Amy Harmon, I humbly Thank You.

    The Rule of Law []  2020-1-22 1:50

    As an adult law student, just wanna learn more from this book about what is rule of law, especially where I'm living is debating day and night about losing the spirit of rule of law in our legal system. I have to say the book is not particularly interesting, if you are not enthusiastic about law or studying law, the subject maybe too simple to attract you to begin reading it and eventually you might feel a small bit boring. However, few things mentioned by late Lord Bingham are very interesting, at least to me, about the history of rule of law and his perspectives about how to deal with it in the future. I would recommend to law student reading this book, especially who wants to focus on public law.

    The Rule of Law []  2020-1-22 1:50

    One of the most interesting books I've read (twice) and makes clear all the legal principles we're used to in the Western globe and why we should not stray from those gives an explanation as to why countries that have embraced the rule of law have flourished and individual freedom is so precious. It certainly makes you more aware when politicians and bureaucrats tinker with our ould be a school textbook.

    Well, I required this book for my Theories of Justice college level course, this is the book I need, It was in mint condition, One small crease on the cover page but no matter, the content is and will be amazing, I suggest you read Rawl's original "Theory of Justice" , then "Political Liberalism" before indulging yourself in this book. There are a lot of references to the previous two books that I just mentioned. You will be lost otherwise.~nchez

    Law of the Jungle []  2020-9-2 19:4

    This CD provides a fundamental lesson in the earlier history of breakbeat. When Shy FX's "Original Nuttah" was released in August of 94 it was one of the hottest records on the scene. This track alone takes you back to the early days of yelling "REWIND!!".. and really set the tag for the evolution of Ragga-Jungle. If you buy this CD at all.. but it for the first track!

    The Law of Innocence []  2020-11-23 19:33

    I have read all of the Bosch and Haller novels, I have thoroughly enjoyed them all until this one, but I will read no more of them should there be any. About 2/3rds through this novel, the author introduced a real-life, very prominent current-day political figure – by name - into a jury selection e author used highly defamatory descriptions of this politician’s hero to justify the novel’s leading character’s striking potential jurors. The irony of the author’s using this politician (or any living real-life person) in this method is that the novel’s plucky main hero was on trial for murder, and the dishonest prosecution was continually making it difficult for the defendant to defend himself – just as the author’s use of a novel as a car for defamation purposes has precluded this current-day politician from defending himself. It is disgusting, cowardly, and very disappointing.

    The Law of Innocence []  2020-11-23 19:33

    Horribly not good plot and no answers to most questions. This seriously reads like a not good copy cat author that tried to lump all Mconnellys characters in a book but failed to capture any of their true personalities in the story. Bosch is simply a bumbling byline that never does anything productive while the rest of the case characters fail to really respond any of the questions raised by the story. Then to top it all off attempting to insert the current Covid flu into it makes for a weird fragmented item. It feels like the author felt the need to insert a few random unrelated facts into the story for no reason but to muddy the waters. Like inserting someone’s choice of breakfast cereal into a story about werewolves. Lastly the pathetic attempts to score political points by a few digs at Trump, Fox News, and Trump supporters was so pathetic and [email protected]#$%! created me laugh. Really? You’re a best selling author and you feel the need to insert current political opinions into a rag mark story in an attempt to create it relevant?? I’ve read every single Bosch and Lincoln Lawyer book so far. After this allow down I’m not sure I’ll spend the cash like a redneck and a BLM protester attempted to write a tom line, rushed, pathetic plot, no true answers, and cheap political shots.

    The Law of success [Book]  2018-5-7 18:0

    I strongly feel that everyone should familiarize themselves with the teachings of Napoleon Hill. "The Law of Success" is the original lessons, from Napoleon Hill, for private development and success. His next best seller is "Think and Grow Rich".I found myself engaged in the material from the introduction. Sure the introduction is like going back to school and sitting in a couple of science classes. However, it breaks down the science of self and of thought to prepare you for the remaining lessons in the book. Anyone who reads the book, grasp a full understanding of its concepts and apply the lessons to their lives will achieve higher levels of success. I give "The Law of Success" five stars because it is 2nd to the Bible in my opinion. An absolute must read if you strive for a fulfilling life of success. I test my best to place God first in all things. Understanding that the God I serve is not a God of lack, but yet a God of abundance I feel that the lessons from "The Law of Success" is cohesive with the lessons from the Bible. Again a must read!

I also believe some of the well known people of fame and power are familiar with this book and have used it. It's hard to search a group so singlehandedly could be difficult but not impossible.

    The Law of Success []  2019-12-27 18:0

    If you wish to see my opinion on this book go to my blog: will post here what this book is all about:This book can place as a perfect reading material for those who are searching Self-help, Self-development and Self-improvements books to support them gain more confidence next part I will summarize what every chapter in this book talks about; but everything is much more in depth described in book. And I’ll add some amazing quotes (in my opinion) that I’ve came across in this first part you’ll learn about most outstanding weaknesses that stands between men and women, and those are:IntoleranceCupidityGreedJelaousySuspicionRevengeEgotismConceitThe tendency to reap where they have not shownHabit to spend more than they earn“No man has a possibility to have fun permanent success until he begins to look in the mirror for the true cause of all his mistakes.“In next chapter we will search 15 Laws of Success:A definite chief aimSelf-confidenceHabit of savingInitiative and LeadershipImaginationEnthusiasmSelf-controlThe habit of doing more than paid forPleasing personalityAccurate thinkingConcentrationCo-operationProfiting by failureTolerancePracticing the Golden Rule“Render more service than that for which you are paid and you will soon be paid for more than you render. The law of ‘Increasing Returns‘ takes care of this.“When it comes to Power (man power), that is organized knowledge, expressed through smart efforts. And we all have stubborn opponents that are constantly watching over us and wait for us to create a mistake. Our opponents are:IgnoranceIlliteracyPovertyOne necessary fact that author is teaching us that every man should have a woman with him that shares related personalities – That is a amazing method to make a “Master Mind” group, than working on working on co-operating with other successful like-minded people. Same rule applies to women also, they can’t succeed in life the man with her is not related to her.When it comes to educating ourselves, one necessary part author has written; It’s not about learning as much as we can, it’s about taking that knowledge and putting it into use.“If you cannot do amazing things yourself, remember that you may do little things in a amazing way.”We all have fears that we need to work on overcoming those fears; and those fears are:Fear of povertyFear of deathFear of ill-healthFear of the loos of loveFear of old ageFear of criticism“Until a man selects a definite purpose in life he dissipates his energies and spread his thoughts over so a lot of topics and in so a lot of various directions that they lead not to power, but to indecision and weakness.”Author has added in book a easy Self-confidence formula that we can use:Demand from yourself to be persistent, aggressive, and continuous action toward gure it out and visualize what kind of person you wish to be. And then focus on how to become one.Spend at least 10 mins a day thinking about Law of Success and thinking on developing yourself.Write in advance what you wish to be in next 5 years, and how you plan on achieve that.Fully realize that no wealth or position can long endure unless built upon truth and justice; There for everything you do need to be beneficial for everyone who is involved in your business and plans.“The only man who makes no mistakes is the man who never does anything. Do not be afraid of mistakes providing you do not create the same one twice.” – RooseveltWhen it comes getting into dept, there are two types of debt that are mentioned by author:There are debt incurred for luxuries which becomes a dead ere are debts incurred in the course of professional or business trading which represents service or merchandise that can be converted back into e first one it should be avoided at any cause, because we can obtain into serious problem by spending cash on things that we can afford, and become all e second on one may be indulged in, but clear judgement need to be used to avoid getting into debt more than we can afford. When we obtain into globe of debt which we cannot afford, then we are entering into globe of speculation, and most likely that we can loose everything rather than getting enrich.When it comes to Cash Saving Habit, there are two main reason to do that:If you obtain opportunity to invest your saving and earn more moneyYou never know what kind of emergency can come up, so you always need to have cash on side for that kind of situations“Those who don’t have Saving Habit can be sure that they’ve never going to become financially independent.”Three ways on how to become person of Initiative and Leadership:You must eliminate habit of procrastination; which means stop delaying your plansOnly method to obtain happiness is by giving it away, to othersYou must understand the meaning of term “Leadership”; because there are two explanation: the one is deadly and destructive, the other one is helpful and constructive.Qualities that every amazing leader have to possess are:Self-confidenceMoral ascendancySelf-sacrificePaternalismFairnessInitiativeDecisionDignityCourageSuccessful leaders also makes use of:Laws of imaginationSelf-controlPleasing personalityAccurate thinkingConcentrationToleranceWhen it comes to Imagination Habit; it’s very necessary because it pushes you forward into creating method to achieve success. Also, Imagination is the only thing that we can control entirely.Enthusiasm Habit is a state of where you are inspired to take action. It is most necessary factor entering into salesmanship. Enthusiasm is the vital force that can be harness and use with profit. It can also support you develop a dynamic personality.Why should we render more service than that which we are paid for? This would give us advantage over ours competitors in the long run. And as author has stated, this will eventually obtain paid out.Learning how to be a Pleasing Personality it’s very necessary in business; from smile, handshake and overall behaviour. When selling something everything needs to be focused on customer, every question asked and not to ere are hints on how we can form an Beautiful Personality:Form habit of interesting yourself in other peopleDevelop the ability to speak with force and convictionClothe yourself in a style that is becoming to your physical build and the work you’r engaged inDevelop a positive characterLearn how to shake hands properlyRemember that your only limitation is the one you set up in your own mindAccurate thinker deals with facts, regardless of they affect hi own interest, for he knows that ultimately this policy will bring him out on top, in full possession of the object of his definite chief aim in learn How to Think Accurately we must understand:That the mind can be controlled, guided and directed to creative, constructive at the mind can be directed to destructive ends, unless we manage to control it into constructive at the mind can be used to control every cell in our at all achievement of man is the results of his e majority of all thoughts conceived in the minds of men are not accurate, being more in the nature of “opinions” or “snap-judgement”Concentration is the act of focusing the mind upon a given desire until ways and means for its realization have been worked out and successfully place into operation. That means ability to hold our mind on one topic until we are thoroughly familiarized with it and master that ere are two forms of Co-operation:Co-operation between people who group themselves together or form alliances for the purpose of attaining a given end, under the principles known as the Law of the Masted -operation between conscious and the subconscious minds, which forms a reasonable hypothesis of a man ability to contact, communicate with a draw upon infinite ere are three motivating forces to which man respond:The motive of Self-preservationThe motive of contactThe motive of Financial and Social PowerWhen it comes to a Failure, in this case that doesn’t mean that we are complete failures in life; but we need to look at failure as a “temporary defeat“. For as long as we don’t give up in reaching our definite aim in life, we are just temporary olerance – there are two significant features about it:Intolerance is a form of ignorance which must be mastered before any form of enduring success may be attained. It causes wars, and you gain much opponents in olerance is the chief disintegrating force in the organized religions of the world, where it plays havoc with the greatest power into little sects and denominations which spend as much effort opposing each other as they do in destroying the evils of the e Golden Rule:“The Golden Rule means, substantially, to do unto others as you would want them to do unto you if your position where reversed.”If you wish to see my opinion on this book go to my blog:

    This classic work frustrates me a bit because you won’t search a better success book on the shop yet I can’t recommend it as much as I would like because of its extremely detailed and long-winded nature. The author constantly refers to this book as a “reading course” instead of a book which makes sense considering the method it is written and it’s colossal y will need something lighter and easier to read and for those people I recommend my other favorite success book which is No Excuses: The Power of self discipline by Brian Tracy. The Essence of Success by Earl Nightingale is an wonderful book of wisdom as well.

    The Law of Moses []  2020-1-15 23:32

    I will begin by saying that I have had weird experiences with books over the years, but not one book has caused me to cry and just pray to God, and every other deity there is, that this book would not cause me to come undone. It is such a strong story, and everyone – everywhere – should read this book. I don’t care what age (maybe not those of you under 14), color, gender, orientation, etc…. This book makes you believe in something other than what’s in front of your face. It’s about pain and love and all things in between. There is no religion motives behind this story. Though, some may think otherwise. Choose how you walk away from reading it. It’s touching and tragic, but most of all, it’s healing. I didn’t think I would be able to type this review without crying. I was ses Wright is the most special hero that I have had the pleasure of reading about. His bonus (or curse, if you wish to say that) is something out of this world. God, I need to sit down with Amy Harmon and ask her some questions. If I tell you about Moses, the story will be ruined for you. So, I will not. I’ve read of troubled characters, but nothing could have prepared me for his story. NOTHING! I am so glad that I purchased this book after reading a review a couple of months orgia Shepherd. What to say about this young lady? She’s not one of those whiny, promiscuous girls that roam so a lot of young adult novels. She is far from it. And though she does tend to follow Moses around and create him talk to her, I felt that it was more of that therapy creeping in. She wanted him to unleash his troubles unto her and heal him. Somewhere along the way, the feelings and longing took over. By the time I hit 20%, I thought that I knew what was coming. How wrong was I. It’s more than love at stake here – it’s life or death.I’m not familiar with horses, and the therapy that is used in this book. From a readers standpoint, the author did an awesome job of bringing that into the story. With the paranormal elements spanning the whole book, I was mesmerized by what each page revealed. I swear I highlighted so a lot of phrases on my Kindle while reading. There are other characters that keep the key to some jaw dropping moments. I can’t say I was surprised by who the perpetrator was. I started assuming as soon as that hero was introduced. And my my my, Mark needs to be my BFF (Best Mate Forever or BoyFriend Forever – I can’t decide which). He and Moses came a long method and I’m so glad that they became such amazing friends. He is just amazing (and hot if I’m being honest). Hell, Moses is hot!Long story short, this is just THE most awesome story. As much as I cried, there were some amazing moments in here as well. It’s dark at times, but don’t allow it steer you from experiencing this awesome writing. I HIGHLY recommend this book. I will pimp it until I die!

    This is one of those rare books where you keep your breath as you read. Like watching a train wreck in slow motion, you know something poor is coming, but are unable to look away:A story of before and after, of fresh beginnings and never-endings. A story flawed and fractured, crazy and cracked, and most of all, a love ses is a truly damaged character, misunderstood and undervalued by all except his great-grandmother and Georgia. Both these women give him unconditional love, but it is another damaged character, Tag, who leads Moses back ere is something incredibly special about the beauty of the writing and the complexity if the plot. The twists are not gratuitous, but based on not being able to understand or believe what is shown.Harmon is a master at creating three-dimensional characters, rich with emotion:If I only knew how to paint Georgia into my life, or how to paint myself into hers without overwhelming her, then maybe the trepidation I felt would melt away. I would never be simple to love. There were some colors that overpowered all the others, some colors that didn’t case you think this is all tears and angst, there are some truly lovely romantic moments and moments to create you laugh. Harmon's depiction of all post box numbers are assigned in the little city is truly is review is late to the party. It is years since I read this novel the first time. I loved it every bit or more the second time.

    This book is like a roller coaster ! Your perceptions on various matters will be challenged several always with this author what might looks as an respond will raise a lot of other questions, and I guess all various according to who the reader e point of view on randomness is challenging all other ideas I had before about randomness, coincidences and luck. If you are asking yourself questions about coincidences such as: What if you could provoke them? What if they were having meaning? What if it was all pre-defined/ already written? I think this book is a amazing begin to search your r vision and the method you deal with uncertainty will be challenged too (especially if you think about the questions at the end of the book...). Just like for the previous books "Weightlessness" and "Lightness" I feel like the author is using what could look like a casual topic, here the die and both stories told within the book, to enter into a heavy questioning and very global insights. I still don't really obtain how he's managing the global versus info approach but to me it looks a lot like philosophy in a more pragmatic and concrete be place in all hands for sure !

    Law of the Die []  2020-1-23 19:7

    The third book of Tom Fazio’s Weightless Trilogy is (besides the appendix) completely fictional. And while his first two books were focussing on mind-body-integration, this book now focuses on how we can utilize the external cirtances. It is a page-turner that challenges thoughts and perspectives, opens fresh doors and andmaster Flash and some of his mates from „The Essence of Lightness“ appear again, but the style of this book is very different. Now facing the globe outside of the Shaolin temple, the monks aren’t rhyming anymore, but dicing… In parallel, the story of grandma Millie is being told, living in a retirement home in Fresh York. First, the characters and stories seem to be very different, but they face related challenges and questions - and use the die to e die is law. Life is full of uncertainties and randomness. Don’t just manage risk, direct your bets, manufacture amazing luck. Life is random, but full of options. Use the die to increase the exposure to randomness, activate options, align them and use momentum to steer towards your is book makes curious to roll the die, but also teaches respect, because besides the surprising, funny and favorable outcomes of dicing, also the downsides and risks are experienced by the characters.

    The Rule of Law []  2020-1-22 1:50

    As Tom Bingham had said in his preface, this book is suitable not only for lawyer but also for non-lawyer who has interested in the concept of the Rule of Law. The author traced us back through its history and origins in Part I, then described the most necessary elements for being the state governed by the Rule of Law in Part II, and go on about interrelationship between the Rule of Law and the International Communities in Part III. Its contents are essential with useful footnotes. The writing style is, for ordinary reader; non-lawyer, simple to follow. I highly recommend this one.

    My 'phenom' daughter recommended this book to me. She read it as a poli-sci/pre-med undergrad at UC Berkeley, and having noticed my growing cynicism regarding the direction our country has been headed, this was her 'philosophical lifesaver'. What Prof. Rawls offers is nothing less than a roadmap of hope, not only for our country but for the world. And that's a mouthful of praise, coming from a cynical Vietnam-vet.

    This book was amazing on almost every level. The authors know how to explain complex legal concepts without getting bogged down in too much detail while maintaining the light mood of the main focus—comics. Not only did they begin my eyes to concepts I never would have considered could affect the comic book world, but I learned a lot about how the American legal system and the Constitution of the United States actually works in the true e only want I had was that they would have gone into more detail on artificial intelligence and the law, but at least they recommended a book for further reading on the ide from that, this book could not have been better!

    The Law of Superheroes []  2020-12-3 19:50

    This book is absolutely excellent for me and will not be quite as excellent for anyone else. Hence the four stars.If part of you has been wondering your whole life what would REALLY happen if someone subpoenaed Spider-Man, or what the hell Tony Stark is doing with his flagrant disregard for international treaties, or what the legal standards of death might be in the Marvel Universe, this is the most enjoyable and thorough work imaginable. The book both yzes the plausibility of the different legal solutions that comics writers have come up with over the years and extrapolates on those solutions to explain what the consequences would be for other superheroes if it were true. It's funnier than the blog--I think the authors are well-suited to a slightly longer form--and it doesn't spend too long on any one idea. The only potential issue is that the comics pages didn't transfer very readably to the Kindle edition, but as the captions explain all the important information, there's no true loss of content.If you are staring at the previous paragraph and thinking, "I have now seen depths of nerdiness I did not previously believe were possible," you are going to be bored by this book.

    The main thing I discovered from reading this unabridged book several times is that the truths are accessible to all equally. It doesn't matter how much cash one has or who one knows. Knowledge and app of the principles set forth in this masterpiece depend on the will and hero of the individual no matter one's humble cirtances.A lot of this book will be familiar to everybody upon their first reading. That's because its contents have been widely cited in every conceivable format. Each of the 16 original lessons have been taught repeatedly, yet the complexity and stresses of life distract the human mind. For this reason, Napoleon Hill provided stories to support the reader reference and remember each e narration didn't agree that well with me.

    Having been a member of the International Commission of Jurists for a lot of years and working to promote the rule of law, it is refreshing to read the works of an eminent British Judge where he attempts to codify and give some true interpretive meaning to this off abused and misunderstood concept. People in government and particularly leaders should read the book before claiming that their government is a rule of law government

    The Law of Moses []  2020-1-15 23:32

    When I come across an author such as this one who wrote this awesome story which is layered with heart-stoppingly attractive theme upon attractive theme about the human condition in which we search ourselves as beings, I cry for the beauty and truth of this author's masterwork. My heart is at once emptied and filled with loss and recompense. I feel lost and then there is the guiding light she shows us through the characters and story. The story begins with questions and ends with answers that are questions themselves. All of this wrapped in a believable story with two people, not only vastly various from each other, but also from the little city social begins with a baby left in a laundry basket at a laundromat, a "crack" baby who was named Moses,so named after another baby left in an ancient laundry basket eons ago. He grew into a kid who had behavioral issues, ADD and whole constellation of "psych" labels attached to him. No family member ever really wanted to raise him, so he moved from family member to family member. He came for summers to Utah to be with his GiGi (Great-Grandmother) where Georgia would see him and be utterly fascinated with him...his unusual yellow-green eyes and bronze skin on a attractive body growing into itself.While he may have been in some scraps as a juvenile, the reader gets to know Moses for the first half through the blind fascination and infatuation of Georgia for him as a troubled but inherently amazing and even gifted boy. Georgia was a fearless horse woman and part daredevil. Moses was like an impossible lure...an impossible dare...a deep pool of water beckoning to her to jump in and possibility a swim like she was forbidden to do by her parents at the pond on their property." Whatever it was, when Moses came to Levan, he was like water—cold, deep, unpredictable, and, like the pond up the canyon, dangerous, because you could never see what was beneath the surface. And just like I’d done all my life, I jumped in head first, even though I’d been forbidden. But this time, I drowned."Moses at 18 was still trying to obtain a keep on himself. He suffered not only from compelling visions and otherworldly messages, but also the sense that he would never fit in anywhere and no one except GiGi ever truly wanted him. He compulsively paints pictures of those who have passed, onto edifices and buildings often angering the folks of Levan and casting suspicion on himself for murdering young women. After all he is various and evil looking.He lives by his own law, "The Law of Moses" and one is: "Thou shall not love."Georgia is persistent in her pursuit of the attractive man kid with the "panther's eyes" and finds herself sucbing to the passions of her body and heart. On the day she tells Moses that she loves him...on this same day, he finds his beloved amazing grandmother has died during the night and because of despairing grief, he sucbs to his demons in an incriminating way. Ultimately vanishing from Georgia's life for over seven e redemption of Moses from the terror of his visions, their purpose as the topic of his art and even the beauty in the anguish and sweetness of the visions are the topic of "Part 2, After". The author delivers a master's touch at knitting the story together with all the characters. Within the framework of a love story or three love stories, if you will, there are some exciting page-turning moments to a few mysteries which, in and of themselves, tie the whole story ere is acute heartbreak the reader needs suffer...and it hits you hard but in a beautiful, heart rending-like way. The reader needs to suffer before there is peace in the finish of this achingly attractive and masterfully told story."A story of before and after, of fresh beginnings and never-endings."

    The Law of Moses []  2020-1-15 23:32

    So satisfied I read this book!!!It is so various from what i've been reading and i love it.. is beautiful, very moving and emotional ..Moses is the weird guy that nobody likes in his town, from the min he was born he already was the gossip of the town.. he sees things and people are scared from him.. he has been judged all his life making him a loner, trying to escape from all of those who point fingers at him.. he expresses his feelings painting, attractive vivid paintings, that nobody understands.. and those who do, are scared of this.. But soon his life will take a turn, that will change him forever.. not even his laws, will save him from her the attractive horse whisperer..Georgia leaves in a very little town, where everybody knows everybody.. she works as a horse whisperer helping children with equine therapy.. she was funny, nice and innocent but at the same time she was strong.. she wants to meet him and test to support him or even save him.. she finds him interesting and also kind of weird but in a amazing way.. but not everybody is satisfied with their friendship..I have so a lot of amazing things to say about the story and these awesome characters..I love how we can see each hero growth as the story keeps moving forward.. also i love how in someway we can see how Moses at first didn't understand what he was seen and with time and some support from other characters and cirtances Moses finally learns what those Visions are..We can also see the growing of Georgias character.. she was innocent but powerful and as the story keeps going we can see how she changes.. Cirtances in life separate them but nobody can hold them apart, not even him, not even his laws.. not even his visions.. because after all those visions will finally bring them together again .. and will present them how they belong together..Amazing secondary character.. Tag!! you're going to love him.. he was smart, and funny and never stopped himself to say what he wanted to say.. best mate of Moses ..I cried a lot with this emotional story, it was breathtaking and i can say it has become one of my favorites for sure..

    Law of the Die []  2020-1-23 19:7

    This book is the third installment of “The Weightless Trilogy.” The first two books addressed mind-body development and integration, and this third installment deals with managing the external happenings of life and optionality. The title of the book refers to a practice of identifying possible actions to take and then allowing the die to create the choice. The book illustrates this idea through two interwoven stories - one involving fighter monks in China and the other concerning his own grandmother in an assisted-living facility in the USA. I enjoyed the book both because I liked the illustrative stories (in particular the one about the author’s grandmother) and I search the underlying premise appealing for a couple of reasons. First, I think it encourages you to think about your options more creatively. It then increases the odds that you will step out of your comfort location more frequently since you’re not the one choosing your next step. From there, actions produce results, which make even more options and choices. Once again, Tom has given us much meal for thought.

    I loved this book! The main premise (no matter what your cirtances, amazing fortune can be manufactured by embracing randomness and subjecting one's will to the law of the die) is distilled via two intriguing stories, separated in time, but connected by principle & idea. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the characters Fazio has created. They are deep, nuanced, surprising and likeable. And the challenges they face force the reader to think about their own life choices and dilemmas. Whether you agree with the premise or not, the questions raised in The Law of the Die are thought provoking and require reflection.

    Awesome quality. Pages are nice and thick and have an old fashion feel to them. They are slightly creamy in tone as well for that classic look. The book is massive and the dimensions are 9 x 6. I also like the fact that the book stays begin no matter where you are in the book itself. Even within the first few pages it stays open. As for the content itself well if you’re reading this then you probably already know. Overall very happy with the purchase. Nice readable font, excellent format and nicely evenly spaced line spacing. I also have the Vieux publishing 1925 law of success and while I do prefer the 1925 ver I much prefer the quality, font and readability of this version. This is not a book to carry around you everywhere you go, its huge and heavy. It’s more to have on the nightstand next to your bed. Highly recommended!

    I read this with high expectations because it comes up as recommended reading in a lot of categories. I finally go around to reading it and throughout I really questioned whether the author had any idea what the 21st century was. Turns out I was right and this was written in the 1925. His concepts don't apply and he hallucinates with long dead globe leaders. On top of that, he basically wrote an entire book to say if you believe hard enough, success will come. That is not how life works and so all in all this was very disappointing. If I could rate no stars I would

    The Law of Peoples []  2020-7-26 20:11

    Rawls writes this to propose a theory of international law. However, his presuppositions govern his argument. The concept of the veil of ignorance is both philosophically and practically flawed, and therefore cannot be the basis of a system such as he proposes. He is also heavily idealistic in what "good society" looks e most interesting part of his work is the part yzing various types of member peoples in his international society. He declares that some peoples simply do not belong. Far from his avowed claim of neutrality and fairness, he rules out some by default simply because they disagree with his own ideal of liberalism. Can a monarchy participate meaningfully in international society? Not according to Rawls, unless it is simply liberalism underneath. Can a tribal society with a native culture do so? Not according to Rawls, unless it is a covering for liberalism.While some liberal ideologies elevate the state to a position of God, Rawls seems to go the opposite direction. Instead, he removes the state from the picture. National sovereignty necessarily becomes meaningless as Rawls does not acknowledge "states" but "peoples" instead. However, peoples in practice are not able to be treated as Rawls treats an upside, Rawls remains mostly consistent with his positions. While I disagree with much of what he has to say, it is a matter of disagreement in starting points necessarily leading to disagreement in conclusions. However, it is also interesting to see that a lot of people who claim his starting points in theory often shrink back from some of the harsher conclusions he reaches in practice, because of the cognitive dissonance resulting from the implicit contradictions.A worthy read, but not worthy of acceptance.

    The Law of Peoples []  2020-7-26 20:11

    This concise book consists of 2 essays, The Idea of Public Reason Revisited and The Law of Peoples. While The Idea... essay is second in the book, I would read it first because it is a amazing review of a crucial concept in Rawls' thought and very useful for grasping the argument in The Law of Peoples. The Idea... explicates Rawls emphasis on mutual justification and the somewhat separate nature of political conduct in formulating the basis of me of Rawls' latest work, The Law of Peoples is an attempt to extend Rawls contractarian approach to international relations. Rawls uses the same approach here used in prior work proposing a reasonable basis for political organization of individual polities. In international relations, Rawls proposes a contract between Peoples (or their representatives) who meet on equal terms behind an ogue of his popular "veil of ignorance" to guarantee a free and equal status. This leads to rational (promotion of self interest) and reasonable (mutually and publicly justifiable) formulation of standards for international conduct. These contain a lot of standard tenets of international law such as battle only for self-defense. Rawls contains both liberal societies (essentially all forms of functioning modern democracies) and what he terms decent peoples. The latter will not meet all the criteria for a liberal state but will respect human rights and have some measures for broad political participation. Something like the type of state envisioned by 18th century theorists like Montesquieu or a state with an state religion and tolerance of other faiths would be decent societies. Rawls primary point is that the values upheld by liberal or decent societies extend logically via the mechanisms he proposes to a reasonable ideal formulation of international relations. Rawls does propose this as an assembly of Peoples, rather than states. This distinction is not perfectly clear but may be that state for Rawls implied too much about the powers of the entity and may not satisfy the veil of ignorance ter formulating and justifying his ideal theory, Rawls discuses some non-ideal issues, such as conduct of battle and the obligations favored states have towards less fortunate much of Rawls work, this work is rigorously formulated and written very carefully. Rawls is never a sparking stylist but this work is perhaps more easily read than some of this work. Rawls feels this work is realistically utopian, the purpose of which is to define some of the bounds of what might be possible in international relations by systematic exercise of reason and amazing faith. In this case, this is actually realistic. Rawls is on firm ground in the sense that some of the foundations for developing his system, like the existence of democractic pluralistic societies and absence of battle between democracies, are true phenomena.

    John Rawls believes that we can achieve something akin to a utopia. Although precious few utopian thinkers have escaped the disreputable taint of astonishing naiveté, Rawls has thought hard about the moral, religious, cultural, and historical nuances that so often create utopic claims tragically optimistic. His own vision of a realistic political utopia rests in his faith in the idea of a social contract; the essays collected in these volumes show Rawls' lifework as a consistent project of extending and radicalizing this venerable idea.Earlier Rawls articulated several general principles--for example, "justice as fairness," and "public reason"--that he thinks justify political relations between members of constitutional democracy. In this book he presents an even more general principle, "the law of peoples," that he thinks would extends the social contract to contain members of certain illiberal ers interested in Rawls' recent views about the real-world prospects of his realistic utopia will welcome this short book. In addition to presenting a long essay about his most general political principle, that of the "law of peoples," this book also contains a shorter fresh essay on Rawls' influential conception of "public reason" within liberal democracy. In both, Rawls is very much concerned with showing how his lifelong project-to bring into fruitful synthesis our deepest communal insights about reasonableness and justice-justify his faith in a realistic utopia. Rawls' congenial prose style makes his dazzling vision accessible to all conscientious readers.

    The Law of Superheroes []  2020-12-3 19:50

    I first ran into Everyday and Davidson (they even sound like a law firm) when I was doing research for my own books. Their website, Law and the Multiverse, acquainted me with the facts about state actors and why superheroes who worked closely with law-enforcement could easily mess up a case when it came to trial. After reading their posts on state actors, secret identities, and superhero insurance, I decided the traditional freelance vigilante model just wasn't going to work in my stories (I was striving for realism, an interesting goal for a piece of superhero fiction). So naturally, when I saw that The Law of Superheroes was finally available, I snatched it up.I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Two groups of readers will read it cover-to-cover, highlight it, dog-ear it, pass it around, and have to obtain a second copy when their first wears out: first, and obviously, writers chronicling the adventures of superheroes (in comic-books or prose--a growing fiction-genre), and second, and more widely, anyone who referees a gaming group playing one of the a lot of perfect superhero role-playing-games (Champions, Mutants & Masterminds, etc), The Law of Superheroes is an invaluable resource.If you belong to either of these two groups, obtain it. Obtain it now, before you write another chapter or host another episode. If you're anybody else and just like to think about this kind of stuff--and I believe this defines a significant portion of comic-book fandom--get it anyway just so you can mock the writers when they obtain it wrong. If they hear from enough of us, maybe they'll begin to obtain it right.

    I have been a fan of Connelly since day one and own every book and have watched every 'Bosch' show. I am an avid reader with over 100 books per year; fiction and non-fiction. Connelly has always been my favorite fiction and I look forward anxiously for each book. I was doing well with this book until I got to the part where Micky turned political and insulted at least half of the readers of this book. When I wish to read a book on politics then that is what I pick up. When I wish to escape from politics and the issues of the globe then I pick up fiction and search myself often re-reading Connelly. I used to watch sports to escape, as well, but no longer do so because they have turned political. How sad that my favorite writer of fiction and one of my favorite characters decided to insult me and turn my reading experience into a political statement. As for the book, it was ok. Not one of Connelly's bestFor any liberals reading this post who feel the need to attack me for stating my views, don't bother. You have called me names and tried to shame me for over four years so I am used to anything you have to throw at me now.

    The Law of Innocence []  2020-11-23 19:33

    Michael Connelly recently came onto my radar. I raced through his books to be able to read this book when it came out today.WHAT A JOKE! This is THE worst book that Connelly has written by FAR. Here’s why:1) it’s a mystery and we don’t know who did it. Enough said.2) Nothing Haller and his “team” did created any difference in the case. All their moves led nowhere.3) The book ends with a massive dose of “lawyering” and none of it is particularly clever and leads to nothing. The case is dismissed with a whimper!?!4) Ok. This is a minor gripe, but Connelly has gotten more and more political with his latest books. This one is over the top. I realize that the publisher may be pushing this nonsense, but you would think Connelly has the gravitas to veto such blatant bias. So he is weak or he actually believes that insulting half the country is a amazing tactic to sell books.5) Why was Harry Bosch even in this book? He solves crimes from 30 years ago, but just investigates around the edges when his brother is clearly framed. He’s portrayed as an impotent hanger on... Harry Bosch!?!6) SPOILER ALERT: So a lot of unanswered questions: Was the police officer that pulled Haller over in on it? Who knows? Why did the FBI step in at the latest minute, when they could have avoided the publicity of the trial at the beginning? Why did the DA have such animosity? Seriously? What created her so confident? No gun... Haller has three cars, but chooses to drive around knowing he has a body in the trunk? He killed someone for a possibility at [email protected]#$%!&[email protected]#$%eriously? That’s a beautiful thin is book is complete garbage. I can’t believe I was so excited to read it.I’m done with The Lincoln Lawyer and since this series has turned into a platform to espouse political beliefs, I’m done with so a lot of amazing artists, he appears to have gotten bored with the very thing that created him successful. Whatever this is, it isn’t close to Michael Connelly at his best (20 years ago.)

    I was so disappointed with this book. Connelly's determination to contemporize the story by inserting his own views on the election and the pandemic only undermined what was a weak and contrived plot with a weak and contrived ending. He churned this book out for all the wrong reasons and it shows. The Lincoln lawyer deserved better and so did his readers.

    The Law of Moses []  2020-1-15 23:32

    4 stars -- I'm often loathe to read books that are so highly regarded by so a lot of people, b/c I'm always worried I will be the black sheep. And I sort of am in a method for this book, in that unlike my friends, this was not a full 5 star read for me. In fact, part 1 was not super compelling for me. Ms. Harmon's writing is really beautiful, but it's not always my favourite style personally. It's really...lyrical? Or you know, just more formal and literary-like than is usually my bag. I just end up enjoying more straightforward writing sometimes. Ms. Harmon is actually one of the few authors that tends to break me from my norm b/c her storylines are just very heartfelt and emotional, and they are worth taking me outside my comfort zone.I was so glad that a few of my friend's reviews mentioned that this story had a paranormal aspect, b/c I would have been really surprised otherwise. Not that I don't love a paranormal touch, but I hadn't expected it from this story when I bought it so long ago. But it was really intriguing, and I loved the method it was woven into the story, and the method it was described. And how it changed and molded Moses, and how it affected his relationship with why did Part 1 not compel me? It was Moses. He was kind of a @#$%. I mean, I could sort of understand why he was the method he was, and I sort of understood how he became that method and why he acted the method he did towards Georgia...but at the same time I required something to pull me in, and I don't feel like I got enough from his perspective to really have me give him enough benefit of the doubt.And Georgia was definitely more interesting of a character, but I couldn't always understand who she was all the time either. But I think that's my failing, not the failing of the book. I enjoyed how various she was, how spunky and straightforward and how she saw something unique in Moses.I didn't expect all the various aspects to the story...not just the paranormal aspect, but the mystery as well. And while I could see that the mystery was going to come into play, I can say that I didn't predict the outcome to that at all. And while I knew this book was going to kill me, I don't think I knew in quite what method and so it still really got me. I'm definitely glad I packed my pockets full of kleenexes for the end of this story, b/c I used them in the end it was part 2 that really created this book for me. It was full of heartache and beauty and growth and just sucked me in and created me feel and gave me exactly what I was looking for. And now I'm definitely going to have to read Running Barefoot. Super intrigued. And that's my distracted review.

    This book resounded with me in so a lot of ways. I am, frankly, in awe of how beautifully rendered this book is. I couldn't place it down, nor can I leave it without appropriate accolades for the author. Consider this review my standing is book is marvelous in its scope and attention to detail. The plot has a lot of layers, each flawlessly woven together. There's exploration of love and the human condition, mystery, star-crossed lovers, small-town dynamics and throughout, an element of the e characters jump off the page as they tell their stories that come together to shape this special and unforgettable tale. There's true heart, demonstrating what it is to truly love and the value of forgiveness, family and practicing gratitude, come what may. There's no put that drags, the story unfolds beautifully. The ending is perfect. I am 100 percent happy and recommend to any who love a amazing book, a thriller/mystery that is told with subtle deftness and a work of amazing heart and art. Brava!

She is a easy girl, loves horses and she wants to be a Vet when she finishes school. Until the day she meets the boy who has moved in with his amazing grandmother next ses Wright was various from Georgia, people called him crazy. He was found at the local laundromat, left in a laundry basket. His mother was a crack addict. So people automatically called Moses a crack baby. The bonus Moses had was more of a burden for him because most people didn't know how to understand him or the possibility to present them. He painted what he saw and felt. And he believed that if he didn't love, then he wouldn't obtain hurt. So Moses was alone except for his amazing is is until Georgia decided she was going to be a mate to Moses, even if he didn't wish one. She pushed and pulled until finally Moses gave in a little. But it was too late. Georgia was already falling in love with him and even though Moses wouldn't admit it, he was falling for her too.When happenings happen and Moses is taken away, Georgia refuses to give up on him but he refuses to see her. Hoping she moves on with her life and forgets about him. After months of no word from him, she finally decides it's time to move on without en after seven years, Georgia sees Moses and it feels like she can't breath but she doesn't allow him see that she is affected. While Moses is thrown for a loop and feelings he tried to hide come rushing n Georgia and Moses move on from the past and create a future together? Will he finally admit he has always loved her? Will she tell him her secret and can Moses forgive her when he learns her secret?When I started reading I knew this was going to leave me in tears. I laughed, cried, held my breath and even prayed. I won a copy of this book a few years ago a finally took the time to read it and I wonder now why I waited so long. I can't wait to read book 2 in this series, The Song of David.If you are looking for a fresh author, give Amy a try, you will not be disappointed.

    I strongly feel that everyone should familiarize themselves with the teachings of Napoleon Hill. "The Law of Success" is the original lessons, from Napoleon Hill, for private development and success. His next best seller is "Think and Grow Rich".I found myself engaged in the material from the introduction. Sure the introduction is like going back to school and sitting in a couple of science classes. However, it breaks down the science of self and of thought to prepare you for the remaining lessons in the book. Anyone who reads the book, grasp a full understanding of its concepts and apply the lessons to their lives will achieve higher levels of success. I give "The Law of Success" five stars because it is 2nd to the Bible in my opinion. An absolute must read if you strive for a fulfilling life of success. I test my best to place God first in all things. Understanding that the God I serve is not a God of lack, but yet a God of abundance I feel that the lessons from "The Law of Success" is cohesive with the lessons from the Bible. Again a must read!

    This is a very scholarly and well-written book. Lord Bingham uses unbelievable examples from cases and other authorities to illustrate different points. Though it is scholarly, it is interesting to read. A no nonsense approach with some humor in places. This is an perfect read for anyone interested in law and gives one an understanding of what the rule of law is and why it is necessary in society.

    As a student, it is necessary to continue reading and reviewing the concepts within through repetition. I continue to be humbled by the concise information, and Goddard's ability to fill in the gaps of my own growth... perfect summation

    The Law of Peoples []  2020-7-26 20:11

    As all writings of Rawls, this book is full with interesting ideas. Especially necessary is the acceptance of diversity of regimes, topic to meeting some standards, which is unusual for powerful proponents of human rights and liberty. But The Law of People suffers from two weaknesses, one conceptual and the second e term “peoples” makes no sense. The offered explanation and justification (pp. 23-30) leave the ontological nature of “peoples” vague. Are Austrians a people or a part of the German people? What about the Ummah of Islam and the Jewish People? What is the relation between “nation” and “people?” – it all remains vague. My recommendation is to read “states” for “peoples” and then, with some adjustments, all becomes e much more serious substantive weakness is partial obsolescence. When the book was written, say 1997-1998, it was already clear that humanity is moving into a fresh epoch in which it can change the globe radically, and also remake itself as a species – including terminating the existence of humankind. This poses fateful problems which must be confronted globally. But the book completely ignores begin with climate change, shall limits on greenhouse gases emission be imposed on all countries? Will citizen in liberal democracies rush to help important life style changes? Who will accept mass migration caused by rising sea levels? The book ignores such problems and much harder ones:Thanks to progress in synthetic biology an apocalyptic sect may be able to synthesize a mass-killing virus likely to decimate humanity. Preventing such global catastrophic risks requires an intrusive collective security regime, with all people/states being compelled to hunt down such sects, or/and a strong global security apparatus doing the job on the basis of worldwide intrusive ould people/states be free to decide on human cloning and production of “super-intelligent machines” – or are global choices on such problems which are enforced worldwide essential?To cope with such unprecedented future-shaping problems knocking on the door it is not enough to "reformulate the powers of sovereignty in light of a reasonable Law of Peoples and deny to states the traditional rights to battle and to unrestricted internal autonomy” (pp. 26-27). The proposed “Law of the Peoples” is clearly inadequate. Much more is required than “some kind of loose or confederative form” (p. 111) of a Society of well-ordered Peoples, based on Kant’s foedus pacifi. There is also something to learn from Hobbes.***Moving briefly to the second part of the book The Idea of Public Reason Revisited, it suffers from wrong assumptions on human beomgs and political processes, which create trust in deliberation as primary to public reason largely utopian. Politics is inherently linked to doctrines hardly begin to doubt, combined with tournament on who gets what. The supposition that citizens deliberate, exchange views and debate their supporting reasons concerning public political questions contradicts nearly all empiric findings and psychological theories. On “hot issues” most citizen do not suppose that their political opinions may be revised by discussion with other citizens (p. 138), nor is “Knowledge and desire on the part of citizen generally to follow public reason” (p. 139) prevailing. Political leaders cannot explain in public all of their reasoning without demolishing the chances of actually acting as statesmen or stateswomen, which often requires doing what the public would not accept. And so onSuch wrong assumptions do not reduce the intrinsic values of democracy, justice and political liberty, their utility as enabling second-order agreement on reaching decisions (however small based on “public reason”), and their importance for providing much scope for pluralism with some civility. Too much of the “truth” may be risky for the very functioning of democracy, however “contaminated.”Therefore I would regard Rawls discourse on public reason as justified, though in part not in the sense intended by him, were it not for the obsolescence shared with The Laws of Peoples.Let us assume that we can move into an epoch of transhumanism by enhancing human minds, up to procreating Homo sapiens superior –who is likely tp displace show humankind and move into a future we cannot conceive. Should development of the technologies for doing so be permitted, encouraged, or strictly prohibited and prevented?Taking a stand on such issues, and also much easier ones such as climate change, is for most citizen a matter for “doctrine,” and/or “gut feelings,” of what they regard as their “interests.” Serious deliberation on complex techno-value dilemmas requires amazing science and technology literacy combined with advanced philosophical and quasi-theological reasoning. These are far beyond the minds of most humans, even if subjected to compulsory year-long erefore, contemporary “public reasoning,” and other conceptions of deliberative democracy, cannot cope with most of the novel fateful problems facing humanity. Ergo, the theory and practice of democracy have to be redesigned in order to preserve as much as possible of its primary values. This is beyond the horizon of both parts of this book, making it in necessary ways obsolete.***Rawls is an outstanding political philosopher. The fact that he ignored the emerging phase-shift of humankind illustrates the lag of much of political philosophy after reality. If Rawls did not sense and comprehend what was event before his eyes, what can we expect from lesser minds…

    Beautiful well written. It doesn't have the impact of Law of Peoples or Political Liberalism though. It was written towards the end of his life, so he may not have been able to flesh out the ideas more thoroughly. It feels sort of like a skeleton of a book, but it's a amazing skeleton and leaves a lot to think about.

    This book, along with the others from Tom Fazio, have an impressive way of relating concepts with a lot of depth in an simple to read and understanding way. They are both fun to read and motivational. I've certainly adopted a lot of weightless principles into my life and think these books can relate to anyone with an begin mind about what wellness looks like.
