RE: book recommendations
If you like Elmore Leonard, Gone South by Robert McCammon is must read. From it's arresting opening sentence (It was hell's season, the air smelled of burning children) it'll have you on the edge of you seat. It also contains some of the most memorable characters you'll ever encounter in a book.

McCammon's Swan Song is also great. It is a 800 or so page epic post apocalyptic good vs evil struggle similar to King's The Stand.

Too much attention to useless detail and very few revelations. Eric Hoffer always complained about how there was too much filler in a book and that you should have at least ONE GOOD IDEA in each chapter; most books have, maybe ONE good idea in the entire text.

My experience too. Most NF books are too repetitive. Or, like books about Enron, too focussed on interpersonal drama, not enough meat. As are most documentaries. I prefer essays for that reason. I will check out his book tho.

I think Thomas Sowell's The legacy of Eric Hoffer here says it quite well. Indeed, the same warning I made about reading Sagan in my post above certainly applies to Hoffer as well!!

Thomas Sowell is ridiculously underrated. Either because he is black, or because he is black and yet refuses to toe any academic party line.... First I heard of him was when my dad forwarded his book Black Rednecks and White Liberals (such as the possible origins of "Respectable " culture in the dysfunctional scotch-Irish that England long tried to rid themselves of). The title is a bit inflammatory but he has many brilliant and original insights.
