(Alistair) And most recent in my non-fiction reading, Silent America, a book of fourteen of Bill Whittle's essays reprinted from his weblog, Eject! Eject! Eject!.

This is a marvellous book, I think. Clear, well-reasoned, thoughts in a well-written and eloquently accessible form. (Despite the unfortunate occasionally unresisted partisan shot, which I will admit does detract slightly from the book for those not inclined to such, which notwithstanding those I think would be interesting reading for those of all reasonable political persuasions.) I found the essays therein spoke to me - moved me - when I first read them on his weblog, such so that I had to obtain this paper edition as a permanent addition to my library. Most highly recommended.

(The formatting's a bit crunchy in parts in the transfer to book from web, and might have done with somewhat more stringent proofreading in parts too, but this's only the most minor of minor criticisms.)
