After decades covering war and disaster, bestselling author and acclaimed satirist P. J. O'Rourke takes on his scariest subjects yet--business, investment, finance, and the political chicanery behind them. Want to get rich overnight for free in 3 easy steps with no risk? Then don't buy this book. (Actually, if you believe there's a book that can do that, you shouldn't buy any books because you probably can't read.) P.J.'s approach to business, investment, and finance is different. He takes the risksfor you in his chapter "How I Learned Economics by Watching People Try to Kill Each Other." He proposes "A Way to Raise Taxes That We'll All Love"--a 200% tax on celebrities. He offers a brief history of economic transitions before exploring the world of high tech innovation with a chapter on "Unnovations," which asks, "The Internet--whose idea was it to put all the idiots on earth in touch with each other?" He misunderstands bitcoin, which seems "like a weird scam invented by strange geeks with weaponized slide rules in the high school Evil Math Club." He closes with a fanciful short story about the morning that P.J. wakes up and finds that all the world's goods and services are free! This is P.J. at his finest, a book not to be missed.… (mere)

Once upon a time when I was very rich I read P.J. O'Rourke and laughed. Now that I am as poor as a churchmouse and need him and this book, I can't get into it. I didn't like the style and often could not figure out what he was getting at. I haven't been able to afford new glasses recently and maybe that's the problem, but anyway I didn't finish the book.

I received a review copy of "None of My Business" by P.J. O'Rourke (Grove Atlantic) through NetGalley.com. ( )

As much as I enjoyed P.J. O'Rourke's early work, such as the classic Republican Party Reptile, this book just doesn't work for me. First, it is more a random collection of rants than a focused set of chapters about the book's ostensible subject--money, banking, debt, equity, assets, and liabilities. Along the way, he takes a Luddite-like approach to anything related to the internet or social media. While it is easy to agree with some of his observations, they are offset by other extreme statements--such as basically saying everything governmental is evil--that make the book hard to digest as a whole. I KNOW--he is a humorist, and it is supposed to be funny. And some of it is. But there is also a lot of serious social criticism here--some of it well founded--and some of it far right drivel. This book really needed a good editor who could give it some semblance of a structure. It's just a mess as is. ( )
