Comment: The greatest book I have ever read in my entire life ....

(See in situ)


The greatest book I have ever read in my entire life ....

was a biography of Andrew Carnegie by David Nasaw.

It brings you into a world like no fiction can.

It describes the life of a true capitalist that figured out margins are greater when you collude with the state.

It is a microcosm that explains the past, the present, and the future.

It lures you into a past place from which you can't escape until the last page is turned.

When I opened the cover, a nurse emerged and placed an IV into my vein, turned on the moraphine drip, and said, "This won't take long".

And she was right. I have never experienced a more literary high in my entire life. Not even heisenburg could deliver a drug so pure.
