Book Review: Thomas Paine’s Rights of Man: A Biography

I thought this would be Thomas Paine’s work, but instead, it was a commentary on that work by Christopher Hitchens.  Hitchens is a staple on talk shows and lecture circuits.  It seems that what he has to say resonates with a lot of people.  I’m not one of them.  I wanted to read Paine’s original work so that is my mistake that I picked up the wrong work, but being the stubborn oaf that I am, once I started it I wanted to finish it.  I don’t like leaving things half done.  I had to slog through this book and didn’t really enjoy any of it.  I can’t recommend this work to anyone, but it won’t stop me from trying Hitchens other works like God is Not Great.
