It’s once again time for me to publicize one of my favorite writers.
Max Gunther, whose books stunned me when I first read them ages and ages and ages ago. I couldn’t recall his name or their damn titles but persistent searching on the Net over the years finally surfaced everything.
His books have been put back in print and from time to time I get up on a soapbox to yell at the unwashed masses gorging themselves on the nonsensical and gooey feel-good “self-help” bullshit being pimped by hucksters, sucker-seekers, and The Me-Too I’m-A-Guru Crowd.
Gunther’s books don’t deal in bullshit. They’re practical. And they should especially be read by anyone who likes what Jordan Peterson has been saying.
This post was prompted by a YouTube search I did for Gunther last night that revealed a video praising one of his books.
See it after the break.
