Overview

Sometimes When You Pursue the Beast, It Eats You, is based on social commentator, Nkrumah Steward's web site "8bm.com."So what is 8bm exactly? News commentary? Urban philosophy? Supermarket tabloid? High farce? Pop cultural nostalgia? Granted, it's a combination of all these things, but that's just scratching the surface. Think of 8bm as a cross between The Matrix's red pill, a quart of vodka and a punch to the stomach, in the sense that you will discover the truth, probably will wish that you hadn't, and will often be left breathless and reeling. In 1776 the great American essayist Thomas Paine wrote, "These are the times that try men's souls." Anyone who in the last five years has stumbled across 8bm.com would have to agree. However, whereas Paine used pamphlets weapons to wage war against British rule, Steward uses his bombastic, biting, but always truthful web site, 8bm.com, to wage war on the inanities and insanities of modern life. Almost every facet of contemporary culture, ranging from global politics to the perils of dating ghetto chicks, is covered with insight, style and verve to match. You might laugh, you might cry, you might even think, "no @!*%#ing way," but you will always walk away with a new angle on what you thought you already knew. Sometimes When You Pursue the Beast, It Eats You, brings you 8bm.com as an education without the need for lectures or tuition fees. It's the way news is supposed to be presented in an ideal world, with amusing perception and prophetic humor, exposing the things that your father should have told you but never did because he didn't know. Sometimes When You Pursue the Beast, It Eats You, is a selection of thought-provoking commentary, including over 200 articles representing Steward¿s razor sharp wit on a range of different subjects from the activities of the lowest rednecks to the machinations of the highest echelons. Kiss good-bye to conformity, political correctness and common sense and step through to the other side of the mirror¿and into the world of 8bm.com.

Funny, Satirical, and makes you think. His perspectives are thought provoking while they make you laugh too. Great book!

If you are mature enough to handle hearing another point of view and if you feel secure enough in your beliefs, where laughing at them won't make you a hypocrite, you've got to read this book!

I have read few books in my life that have inspired me to the extent SWYPTBIEY has - inspired me to think, question my world and worldviews, change my schema of life. I would higly recommend this book to adults who wish to 'shake up' their way of thinking. It's entertaining, humourous, and at times, infuriating - but it's all good because I am a better person for having read it.

One of the most thought provoking reads in years....intelligent and witty. STWYPTBIEY is brilliant.
