    Plato and A Platypus Walk Into a Bar by Thomas; Klein, Daniel Cathcart

    This New York Times bestseller is the hilarious philosophy course everyone wishes they’d had in school Outrageously funny, Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar . . . has been a breakout bestseller ever since authors—and born vaudevillians—Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein did their schtick on NPR’s Weekend Edition . Lively, original, and powerfully informative, Plato and a Platypus Walk Into a Bar . . . is a not-so-reverent crash course through the great philosophical thinkers and traditions, from Existentialism ( What do Hegel and Bette Midler have in common? ) to Logic ( Sherlock Holmes never deduced anything ). Philosophy 101 for those who like to take the heavy stuff lightly, this is a joy to read—and finally, it all makes sense! Watch a QuickTime trailer for this book.

    Eat the Rich by P J O'Rourke

    In P. J. O’Rourke’s classic best-seller Eat The Rich, he takes on an elusive subject, but one that is dear to us all—wealth. What is it? How do you get it? Or, as P.J. says, “Why do some places prosper and thrive, while others just suck?” Starting on Wall Street. P.J. takes the reader on a scary, hilarious, and enlightening world tour to investigate funny economics. Having seen “good capitalism” on Wall Street, he looks at “bad capitalism” in Albania, views “good socialism” in Sweden, and endures “bad socialism” in Cuba. Head reeling, he decides to tackle that Econ 101 course he avoided in college. The result is the world’s only astute, comprehensive, and concise presentation of the basic principles of economics that can make you laugh, on purpose. P.J.’s conclusion in a nutshell: the free market is ugly and stupid, like going to the mall; the unfree market is just as ugly and just as stupid, except there’s nothing in the mall and if you don’t go there they shoot you.
