Please note...

[Update: So many people write to tell me how much they've enjoyed reading these two books, but there are no new reviews of them on Amazon! Yes, five stars is very good, but some more thoughtful reviews certainly wouldn't hurt these two wonderful authors. So, if you bought, read, and enjoyed these books, please post a review. Thank you.]

The reason I edit, typeset and publish books by promising new authors is that I want you to read them. And to do that you have to buy them. Someday soon these excerpts will stop, and then, unless you buy the books and read them, you will end up with half-baked thoughts in your heads. Enough said. Please click on the images below.

Bureaucratic Insanity was completely terrifying. Now I can't help but notice how much of life is mixed up in red tape strung along by cruel masters and how we just keep swallowing that red pill at our own peril. A great reminder to re-start meditation practice.

Yes, master.

I browsed Kerrigan's website yesterday and plan to buy his book once I get through my backlog. It's funny and ironic that the best insights today are offered up by authors making simple observations of things as they are. Insanity does indeed rule these days!

William Robb said...

Can I by these through some place other than Amazon?

Dmitry Orlov said...

These books are printed and sold by Amazon.

A very persuasive argument! You would make a great salesman. I purchased one imminently. ;-)

Received my copy of "150 Strong."

M.K. Styllinski said...

Bought "150" and finished reading it a few days ago. Can't recommend it enough. It should be essential reading for those interested in building genuine community. It can be viewed as the solid foundation upon which new creative concepts can be built. Well done Mr. O'Grady.

I am sorry you deleted the NIRP posts, I found them valuable. I believe a demurrage currency will be a way forward in a declining economy. If people are motivated to keep money in circulation rather than hoarding it, we may be able to keep up with the inevitable decline in infrastructure during times of catastrophic weather events and decrease government ability to cope.

Where can I read this "Drag" you speak of? Maybe start a separate blog for boring politics and economics?

Дмитрий, любопытная статья про то как повлияют автономные грузовики на американское общество и вообще развитые страны http://khazin.ru/khs/2352737
Будет здорово если вы решите развернуть эту тему подробнее, интересно узнать как это всё выглядит с вашей точки зрения

Dmitry, it's your arresting take - and your excellent dead-pan comedy language - on just such crap as finance and politics - amongst other things - which keeps me coming back to your work.

I thought I detected a slackening recently in your enthusiasm for such posts. Pity! It's good stuff. I always find it very good for my own insight into things - your and JMGreer's work, both! I wondered why it's latest manifestation had disappeared from Club Orlov. But well... if you're finding it boring, that's sad, but it's your prerogative.

Esteban Español said...

Done. It took me some attempts but at the end Amazon Spain let me do the review of 15-Strong.
Will Bureaucratic Insanity have an ebook version (a bit easier to buy that a print version for your readers from abroad)?
We love your funny posts Dmitry, your sense of humor is a balm for knowing too much about our situation, to read it one time is just enough.

Howard Skillington said...

I second Mr. Gwilym's response. Your entries on finance and politics have been my primary reason for visiting this site and for buying your books.

I feel no particular obligation to buy the books of other authors, regardless of who recommends them.

My deep respect to You and all Your team, Dmitry.
I have received this Declaration in the evening, in regular e-mail from Paul.
It was very unusual. Clearly comprehending its seriousness, I put aside everything and set to translating it.
It`s been finished recently.
SVP, have a look at it, f.e., here:
Наибольшая угроза для Америки: ее сошедшее с ума «Руководство» и ее население с промытыми мозгами Предупреждение русских людей из Америки.

How do I purchase both books if I'm not Amazon prime user (UK)?
