    Have to disagree. To simply acquiesce and not try is a recipe for defeat. I say this struggling to get back to a 242 single in the bench press.

    Might just do that. If trying to absorb it leaves me a drooling doofus I could always lend it to my girlfriend. She's looking at studying to pass actuary exams. Seems like his wheelhouse would run close to that. She really, really loves math.

    Reading this and watching your video on training as you get older sure hit home for this 70yo geezer.

    I struggled with it, failed in frustration after a chapter or so but, like having tired to eat liver because it's good for me, I will try again. Even with my previous travails with it, his works were a far better read and far better reasoned than Ayn Rand. Although she never set that bar very high in the first place.
