    1. A fun little tract of political satire, enjoyable for its writing and humor, even if you don't have enough knowledge of early 18th-century British history to understand most of the underlying political criticism. Maybe not quite as accessible as some of Jonathan Swift's satires like A Modest Proposal, but I still laughed out loud (in public) when I read it. If I ever learn more about the history of the period, I'll want to read it again and see if I laugh louder.
