    summary ð Letters to a Young Contrarian Letters to a Young ContrarianDeath hath wrought a pernicious dent in the erudite and intellectual world; Hitchens will not be one to be soon forgotten nor ever replaced but emulated definitely Let me stop you before you roll your eyes Yes I am providing my belated unasked for and pedantic tribute to the late Hitch but this is as appropriate of a forum as any to do so right Indeed I read this magnificent little collection of letters of advice written to no one in particular but everyone in modest and solemn remembrance I listen to Hitchens’ lectures and debates as if they were my favorite records Inst

    summary ð Letters to a Young Contrarian Letters to a Young ContrarianHave you ever conceived of a lean epistolary work on the pugnacious pursuit of truth and the importance of descaling your cherished ideals as often as possible in an effort to avoid gestating a stilted intellect that ossifies with time like sun baked avian offal That was very prescient of you as the late master of melee most mouthful produced one such work and now reaches out across time to steady you by your tender morsels and shotgun past your trembling lips the hot second hand vapors of wisdom tirelessly sought Until you’re shouting “Kiss me hard on the mouth you disagreeable asshole I wish to learn the pressu

    summary ð Letters to a Young Contrarian Letters to a Young ContrarianChristopher Hitchens was my 5 star author hero Everything he wrote I had to ration how much I read at a time so I could savour his writing his pronouncements his humour and his wisdom This book was but a pale shadow of his others and I couldn't finish it I may one day pick it up againAlthough Hitchens is often the star of his own books he is able to put himself to one side to concentrate on the subject Unfortunately in this one he is not just the star but the elevated hero and great as a writer he might have been as a person he was no less flawed than the rest of us Perhaps so perhaps that is what made him so interesting

    summary ð Letters to a Young Contrarian Letters to a Young ContrarianThe book I've probably read times than any other I consistently go back to it when in times of crisis or when I need a mental recharging The thing I love about Hitchens is the fact that no matter what you think about him he has lived a full life There's no stone unturned intellectually verbally hell geographically He truly has read and seen and pretty much done it allNobody's going to agree with him 100% I don't and I'm one of his biggest fans but what you take away from his work and this book in particular is a challenge As well as countless insights Flip to any random page and you'll find something which you either haven't thought about in very much detail before and suddenly feel compelled to investigate something that you vehemently disagree with and are forced to re defend with an able and powerfully elouent o

    summary ð Letters to a Young Contrarian Letters to a Young ContrarianThrough the years reading Christopher Hitchens has been hit or miss for me Mortality was amazing but many other works basically unaccessible to me perhaps because they are all too cerebral and the subjects fail to interest me I remember Hitchens on a Bill Maher show on HBO where he was a guest and argued with the audience for almost the entire program I did not appreciate that behavior then but do so now after reading this book I cannot highly recommend this book to any person who wants to think for themselves and stand apart from the crowd Hitchens was courageous in both life and de
