In the last #IWFReads Book Club of the year, we spoke with Jason Riley, author of Maverick: A Biography of Thomas Sowell.

The powerful biography gives a fascinating look into the life, intellect, and influence of one of the great social theorists of our day.

As the book description reads, “Maverick showcases Sowell’s most significant writings and traces the life events that shaped his ideas and resulted in a Black orphan from the Jim Crow South becoming one of our foremost public intellectuals.”

Sowell’s take on economic history, social inequality, political theory, race, and culture made him a “fan favorite” among conservatives and a target among the “PC” class and liberal establishment.
