Empire of the Summer Moon

Thursday, December 19th, 2019

A few years ago I mentioned Empire of the Summer Moon, when Scott Alexander reviewed it, and then I finally bought it a couple months ago, but I haven’t read it yet. It turns out Joe Rogan mentioned it himself recently and sent sales of the audiobook through the roof:

Incidentally, I recently listened to the audiobook version of Blood Meridian, which also deals with Comanches, and I was sorely disappointed.

    Great book, which I read after you pointed us to Scott Alexander’s fascinating review (working link). Thanks for the tip!

    Excellent book. I read that a couple of years ago, also after SSC’s recommendation, and enjoyed the heck out of it.
