Clearly, not much time carved out for reading in the last year! However, I was proud that I finished Postcapitalism because I had started it in 2019; it was a fixture on my nightstand for years. I was wrong to judge How to Win Friends and Influence People based on the title, but a more descriptive one could have been How to Get Along with People in Business and in Life. Burke continues to make me want to visit Montana with his paintings of sweeping vistas and rich sunsets, but that isn’t the point he’s trying to make when describing vicious acts of violence.
