A timeless and timely little book to be read and reread.

The author recently died and I was reminded of this book. I decided to read it in preparation for the oncoming deluge. This essay is short, but as a book, it is very short. It is so short that its Wikipedia summary seems as comprehensive as the book itself.
The author's insights and analysis seemed valuable, but if I were the publisher I would consider a version that included essays by his critics, Mark Twain's "On the Decay of the Art of Lying", and perhaps Max Black's "The Prevalence of Humbug" (referenced by Frankfurt).… (mere)

Traversing the meaning of bullshit from its dictionary definition to philosophical analyzation, On Bullshit runs the gamut to explain why there is so much of it in today's world. This is not some sarcastic tome, it is a serious discussion on the term bullshit. No really. Seriously!
