I have another book of his.  It's called from freedom to slavery.  He praises Jesus and Marx in the intro.

Occaisionally I get it out and read til I get so mad I throw it accross the room... I'm about to chapter two. The tyrany of Maleness (or is it the Tyranny of Money? or The Tyranny of Work?)

If winning arguments changed minds, the world would be a different place, entirely.

Yes, Landon, as I said in my review, the author's mixed philosophy can drive an Objectivist batty.  I only recommend this book because he does offer some worthwhile insights into winning arguments, such as giving the argument in the form of a story.  Ayn Rand did that as well.

Might still be worth checking out. But more than agreed on the batty part.

Gerry Spence is a great speaker and rhetor. An Objectivist, he's not, but I don't think there's any better sounding American speaker of English in existence. He makes Darth Vader sound like Nancy Pelosi.

For anyone who likes books on tape, I do recommend this work.
