Quarter of a Book Review: The Last Centurion

time to read 2 min | 244 words

I am not really sure what to think about this book. On the one hand, it is entertaining. On the other hand, it seems to be filled with... propaganda?

I am not sure that this is an accurate statement, but I am on 2.5 hours, and so far it has been interesting. The description of the handling of a crisis and analysis of how it could be prevented is fascinating in itself. But the last twenty minutes or so seems to be focused really heavily on showing off the US healthcare system and interesting political views.

The start of the book is wonderful, as I already mentioned, and I am going to hear it all, because it is still entertaining, but I really hope it would get to some more interesting bits soon.

Two interesting observations, the story begins with a really interesting part, which establish the credentials of the protagonist and a certain style. In particular, Do. The. Math. is an expression that is often used to compare farming techniques (hand labor vs. mechanical). I have just realized that it is used in a more controversial form. It uses the trust established for this term earlier to support this statement.

I am not sure that I agree or disagree about what he is saying. I don't have all the facts, but again, it is interesting, although discomforting. I want to listen to a plot, not a lecture.
