leaning books

This blog is all about seeking wisdom through books (and elsewhere). Good books. Really good books. I’m zeroed in on those books that are particularly artful, informational, and excellently written.

I just discovered a podcast that features the opposite: books that really suck. Often this occurs when an author peddles some half-baked idea without any research to back it up. And then millions of people buy it—literally and figuratively. I’m enjoying this podcast that’s an inverse of this blog because it helps shine a light on what’s great by identifying what’s not, and why.

The podcast in question is called If Books Could Kill.

Have you read a book lately that practically killed you through bad writing?
