The original terms of the facebook contest stated that weekly Top Contributors and Top Discussion topics would be chosen. Every month, one top contributor was to be selected to receive a free book for their efforts. It has been such an overwhelming success, we are changing the rules.
Judge John Denson skillfully edited what is perhaps one of the most under-appreciated books published by the Mises Institute. The book, Reassessing the Presidency (store | PDF), suffers from but one fatal flaw…the title. Unfortunately, most people read the title and conclude that the book would be an adequate substitute for Ambien.
This could not be further from the truth! The book’s nearly 800 pages are broken down into small chapters written by 21 of the greatest Austrians alive today. Sure 800 pages makes it seem like a Sisyphean task but it truly isn’t. The book is cleverly put together in a way that lends itself to be read by even the busiest person who doesn’t have time to read a book from start to finish at once. It can easily be read in bits and pieces or used as an excellent reference.
So applying Tucker’s Law: “If you want to sell something, give it away for free” we have decided that every week, two Top Contributors will be selected to receive a free copy of Denson’s Reassessing the Presidency. The hope is that this great work will gain more widespread appreciation.
Now for the weekly Top Contributors: Raul Amavisca and Wes Clark! They both added valuable, intelligent comments to the discourse in various Discussion topics.
