Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quotable Hitchens From Alcohol to Zionism (Paperback)
I bought this book simply because I love Hitchens and his work and opinions. However, this book has proved to be extremely useful in a number of different situations. For example, if you are having tea and you want to find something interesting to talk about then you can simply flick to one of the more contentious issues that Hitchens has commented on, read out a quote, and start a debate!
It is also useful while writing speeches; quotations are always useful in speeches,and this book gives you a vast amount of quotations of a vast amount of topics. I used a quotation from this book while I was debating with a friend whether or not abortion can ever be justified, and the quotation spiced up the conversation immensely. I also used a quote from this book while writing a public speech on Mother Teresa, which I am performing in a few days time.
This is not, however, the sort of book that you read cover to cover. Instead, it is the sort of book that you dip in and out of when you feel like seeing Hitchens' opinion on a certain issue.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an interesting book that is certain to fire up opinions and start interesting debates.
