Learning My Way Around
James Patterson is a genius author.

He gets better as he goes. I read Cross recently and was just wowed with his philosophical acuity. The book is about capitalism and psychopathy. Cops and psycho-killers operate by the same principal of contract and rights and liberties.

The film Along Came a Spider (2001), based on his writing, is so fantastic too. It is about 'What is free will?' Alex Cross is free, he is the good psychopath. Soneji is the bad psychopath -- and then we discover that Flannigan is the puppet-master of Soneji! Every line of dialogue is a brilliant comment on what freedom means and what is good versus evil (evil means extrinsic compulsion). My very favorite part of the movie is: The door on Soneji's boat is not locked! Did you catch that?
