The real meat
DK and Tempo seal the deal when Tempo promised to abandon his quest for the final insult with the historical words "I can't beat Shakespeare anyway".
I wrestled myself through the mud of the first two chapters of part II of My System. Part II contains the real meat. It is pretty incomprehendsible, so it might going to be a long journey. The work carries all flaws from a genius who has just discovered great idea's, but struggles with the pedagogic aspects of his writings. Since the book was first published in 1925, I'm inclined to think that somebody has rewritten his stuff in a way suitable for us mere mortals. Does anybody know that?
