Just got done with: This was the first Heinlein book that I didn't like. Very disappointing. Shouldn't be surprised, Slim recommended it to me.

I am reading The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P. Hall. Chocked full of esoteric goodness. I certainly do not believe everything he says, but it is an interesting read nonetheless.

I love his stuff, but much prefer to listen to it on CD as he reads his own.

These are important books. Once you sift out her quackery, you get to a strong, powerful argument for individualism and capitalism... Is she an extremist? You bet! But scale her back by like 90% and you're left with great books...

BTW, Atlas Shrugged is a lot better than Fountainhead...
