Nr Books Including: New! Rick Brookhiser

Some books that should be on your book shelf (after you have read them, of course): COMING IN JUNE (you can order them now): Rick Brookhiser’s Gentleman Revolutionary: Gouverneur Morris, the Rake Who Wrote the Constitution and John Derbyshire’s Prime Obsession: Bernhard Riemann & the Greatest Unsolved Problem. Recently published: WFB’s Getting It Right and David Frum’s The Right Man. There is, too, of course, the classy National Review Treasury of Classic Children’s Literature for any kids in your life.

This, by the way, is the very first Corner mention of Rick’s book on Gouverneur Morris, so get moving. And if you haven’t read his previous Founders books, on Washington, Hamilton, and the Adams family, what exactly are you waiting for? You have some reading to catch up on!

If I left out anyone’s book, feel free to yell at me…
