A while ago I came across a book. This book is excellent. This book , in a fun and an interesting way, points out the joys of life, the marvels of the free market, and the problems with government.
I submit to you that there is no more fun or more enjoyable book to read about serious topics.
Bourbon for Breakfast by Jeffery Tucker is just a superb book. If you want to begin to understand the joys of a free market and the evils of government then there is no better place to begin reading. ...except perhaps its sequel, It's A Jetson's World.
Each chapter of these two books is a marvel. The author takes a simple subject, like shower heads, the drinking age, or the weeds in his yard, to explain why free markets are a marvel to behold and the opposite, government control, is not good.
I think that all of the time that I have spent on this blog would be worth it if I accomplished nothing other than convincing someone to read one of these two books.
If you are hesitant to buy, have no fear, read them for free at: http://mises.org/Literature/Author/205/Jeffrey-A-Tucker
Download an ebook or a PDF, and read Bourbon for Breakfast to understand why the author is in favor of giving them away. The reasons are avilible in chapter 27, on page 118 of the PDF: http://library.mises.org/books/Jeffrey%20A%20Tucker/Bourbon%20for%20Breakfast.pdf
Read these books and be amazed at how good non fiction can be.
