John Berryman - Delusions
Ohhh, I have my copy of The art of hunting humans always laying around somewhere handy. I read and reread it a lot. Very good in my opinion.
A song of Ice and Fire by George R R Martin
I finished all 5 books that are out to date in 1 month. Most epic book series i have ever read.
you don't even have to like fantasy to enjoy
Ugh lord, I couldn’t even finish it. Dislike Dr Hart immensely!Reading "Drug use for Grown-Ups" by Dr Carl Hart atm - well dipping in and out of it would be a better description.
Disappointing for me. Am not at all enamoured with his writing style and find his cultural observations quite dull and his drug glorification quite inane. I imagine it might be interesting for someone who has only recently begun to consider the topic, perhaps.
Haha, don't remind me Hitler's writing was so bad, dunno about the translations, but the originals are fucking hilarious.I've been reading this book called "Hitler's Table-Talk" recently, for a research project.
Adolf Hitler wrote two books, the well known "Mein Kampf" and the less well known "Zweite Buch" ("Second Book"), which wasn't published during his lifetime. But there was also a compilation of talks, many of which were transcribed by Hitler's secretary and others, that forms the basis of "Hitler's Table-Talk" (there has been some controversy about the way the document was compiled and translated but it's generally considered to be authentic). In it, Hitler expounds on a variety of subjects...many of them are boring, long-winded monologues about niche topics that Hitler was interested in (he was a great public speaker and was really good at haranguing the masses & frothing the people up but he just never came across well on the printed page IMO)...a lot of content (from what I've read so far) about religion and foreign policy, plans related to the war etc...and of course there's some of Hitler's familiar preoccupations sprinkled in, an obsession with race, the Jews, etc.
I've been looking in it for commentary related to the early rise of the Nazi movement in Germany & Nazi economic theories (the topic I'm researching) and I've gotten a few good bits so far.
Hitler's Table Talk is the title given to a series of World War II conversations and monologues delivered by Adolf Hitler, which were transcribed from 1941 to...archive.org
