Don’t anticipate a book review from LeM (I’m afraid)

“Expecting is the greatest impediment to living. In anticipation of tomorrow, it loses today”

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

 

I’d really like to do a book review on Russell Brand’s new book Revolution. It is right up my alley.

Brand is talking about toppling the elite designed and maintained system that doesn’t really work for anyone other than the owners.

Russell isn’t advocating chaos. He’s simply suggesting we could and should be thriving under a mutually designed system that fairly distributed resources, looks after people, takes care of the planet and protects the other species we share this blue rock with. Hear, hear mate. This resonates with me. I’m not so much anti-capitalist. More pro life and liberty for all.

Trouble is I won’t be doing a book review anytime soon. I reserved a copy of this book at the public library. 19 people in front of me means in a little less than 2 years I’ll get to read it. By then pretty much no point doing a review as anyone with a flicker of interest will have read it already. [In the meantime no spoilers please!]

As I said I am really interested in this book and this will all be old news by then, but I just can’t bring myself to go into town, find a shop and part with $40. Besides, its nice to have things to look forward to in life. Hopefully my loan of this book will neatly coincide with a beach holiday and pleasant weather out.
