Quote by Klaus Kinski
“One should judge a man mainly from his depravities. Virtues can be fakes. Depravities are real.”

I am currently reading 15, now 14 books at one time, and not getting very far. Add into that trying to work on three novels at a time (1 almost done, 1 halfway done, 1 ten pages done) and other pursuits as well means I don’t have much time for other things I should be doing. It results in having June come and go. It results in the first week of July being gone already. However, this book was a worthy read. I Wear the Black Hat covers many topics and unlike a book that spews material that is interesting but does not much depth (one comes to mind I will not name), the platform of this book is brutish behavior and branches out from there. Chuck Klosterman provides all the information, facts, and insights that makes a non-fiction book interesting. It sort of reminds me of a book I read that deals with evil although this was not as academically inclined. Some topics include Bill Clinton, The Eagles, Ted Bundy, The Sopranos, O.J. Simpson, Seinfeld, Chevy Chase, and Basic Instinct. I chuckled in parts of this book unlike other books I’ve read. This book is honest, true, funny, and points out the mishaps of Americans whether football players, musicians, or politicians. Well worth the read.
