Review: “A Killing Art” – By Alex Gillis

Review: “A Killing Art” – By Alex Gillis

Espionage, Congressional scandal, Karate and Korean mobsters – what more does a good book need? Going over some research on Japan and South Korea I found a review that I originally published in May of 2011. It’s a pretty wild true history and I think it’s worth taking another look at. “A Killing Art” by […]

  • Monkey Business: Two Very Different Bigfoot Books
    In these crazy times, I have had a need to take a break from political research. What I found is as informative and interesting as it is scary. That is, reading up on Bigfoot-Sasquatch, which probably for the same reason I found, has hit an all-time high public interest cycle. Bigfooters, or “Squatchers”, as they […]
  • Review: “How Fascism Works” By Jason Stanley
    I really appreciate when an author can boil complex ideas down to easily understandable concepts. “How Fascism Works – The Politics of Us and Them” by Professor Jason Stanley is just such a book.

    People who read this blog have probably noted a change in the material I have reviewed lately. Recent subjects include: permaculture, radicalism in the 1970’s, pre-history revisionism, and yes, Bigfoot. The fact is, I am in a political burn-out mode and needed some breathing room with off-beat subject matter. Rarely do I read fiction, but […]
  • Review: Building A Better World In Your Backyard
    Sitting here by my window, with over ten inches of snow on the ground, is a great time to review this Permaculture book by Paul Wheaton and Shawn Klassen-Koop. I’ve been working on farms and orchards since the 1980’s, but this book is an inspiration to step up my game. Paul Wheaton is a bear […]
  • Review: The Hidden History Of The Human Race
    As the plague season rolls on, my reading has (as a matter of sanity) drifted from hard-core political filth to more esoteric subjects. They have been quite a welcome distraction. For instance, I recently reviewed “Daydream Sunset” by Ron Jacobs, about counterculture in the 1970’s. (All reviews can be found at https://www.covertbookreport.com/ ) Then we […]
