Review: Kill the Rich by Rich the Poet Warrior

HAPPY DEPRESSION EVERYONE! Pick you spirits up with this lite light hearted look at our common woes. Using the $tylings (and semantRics) of modern media and public relations to contest the tendency of democratic citizens to voluntarily relinquish control of their lives to organizational bureaucracies we’ll laugh our heads off as we review what went wrong, how we got there, blame someone, and then (you’ll like this) we’ll come up with some novel solutions. Good time for all.

Received from the publisher for review.

I had severe doubts about this before I even opened it, but as soon as I cracked it open and discovered a section entitled “Why Conservatives Hate Queers” my reservations were confirmed. No, really, that's an actual section heading in the book. Shockingly, that was not the worst of it. The author also discounts global warming entirely and has an interesting rant about how recycling actually benefits the rich.

This one gets one star. This was simply a virtually incoherent rant. While a small minority of the author's ideas are valid, the manner in which he presents them takes away from any power they may have. The text is riddled with proofreading and spelling errors which also takes away any possibility of reading enjoyment. There is just no conceivable reason to read this. Just say no.

☆☆ = Hated It

I was kind of hoping this one would surprise you.

Don't you hate when published books are poorly written and full of errors? Some of my textbooks are like that, and I can't imagine how they were published or how they became required reading for college classes. Books like these are painful to read!

Sounds like a book I will avoid at all costs.
