I can’t describe how much fun it is to be in a class with Tom Woods. The balance of an economist and a historian is an irregularity in its own right (as fellow readers of history would agree) yet the ability to deliver copious amounts of information in small pockets of time is a true talent. Many of my historian colleagues at the institution of higher learning where I teach are too longwinded to converse with. As brilliant and knowledgeable as they are, they may proceed to pontificate ways in which to build a watch if you were to simply ask them the time. It is quite taxing.
Conversely, Dr. Woods is the opposite, reading his books and listening to his lectures are actually taxing on my hands as they attempt to take notes from the lightning of information.
