scalzi is basically vox day if he was a leftist, don't waste your fucking time

here's some actual recommendations i have on hand right now

1493: Uncovering the New World Columbus Created by Charles C. Mann - basically an overview of the changes that were brought on across the world by the columbian exchange, pretty cool and also full of shit you probably weren't aware of

The Bully Pulpit by Doris Kearns Goodwin - a very long, very comprehensive book on theodore roosevelt, william howard taft, and the muckracking journalists of the time. really fucking cool and hard to put down, and it's long as fuck to boot.

A History of the American People by Paul Johnson - also long as fuck and comprehensive, basically goes through the entire history of america up to the 1990s

History of the Russian Revolution by Leon Trotsky - really just sorta speaks for itself

Comrades and Strangers by Michael Harrold - an interesting book written by a man who spent a significant portion of time in north korea, and made many friends along the way. definitely worth reading just for the premise alone, but it's also just something you don't often get to hear about

vox day is someone who by most standards is a radical right-winger. he's mostly known for the rabid puppies and pissing social justice warriors off

scalzi is an idiot who likes to le ebin shoehorn his progressive af agenda into literally everything just like vox day

he also does not like vox day and the two have a hilarious spat which in part lead to the creation of the rabid puppies to fuck with the hugo awards
