Weeee... first post for the book Arrogance...

Anyone who has read this, can you give me a rating, comparing it to Bernie's other books or why i should read it? I'm thinking about reading this or Bias soon.

Bias and Arrogance need to be read in order. Bias feeds into Arrogance. 100 People stands just fine on its own and does not require reading the other two. BUT, I still recommend, HIGHLY, reading all three.

Arrogance shows the media elites reaction to Bias and exposes them for the frauds that they are.

There is no better in this case. It is like asking what is better in the Encyclopedia Britannica Volume A or Volume S-Sn. I do not think that Bernie intended the books to be a system, but you need to read Bias first and then Arrogance. Need to read both.

Now, with 100 People..... that one stands alone and is great, but exposes the greater culture war that was touched on in Bias and Arrogance. Therefore, I think you should read it in addition to the others, preferably after the others.

Well, i've made my decision to put em off until i get my 250$ for these flyers i'm making for some people, since I'm thinking about using my 400$ to get a new stereo system... But I defiantly want to read them now, I read through every 1 star rating on them on Amazon, it's fun to see why people hate them before buying a book, since most of the hates are just people too afraid to admit something is good.

Bias feeds into Arrogance.


As in literature, so it often is in real life as well.
