    Hey, I've read some of those!

    C'mon now...#12 wasn't too bad.

    And #1 is just wrong.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    I've got several 'Unix is easy' books... they're actually quite lengthy. One (Unix in 24 hours) must be for speed readers... You try to read and retain 500 pages of exceedingly dry text in less than 24 hours some time!

    Here's my 4 word Unix guide...
    man is your friend

    'French Hospitality' should be changed to 'Parisian Hospitality'... The country French that I've met are good, solid, down-to-earth people. It's really just in Paris where everyone seems to have a fish hook stuck up their noses.

    How about 'Obama's Policy Guide'? Now there's a short book... (hopechange)
    Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. It's worth it.

    It's an old list, but it looks like they added a couple new entries over the last few years.
