Murray Rothbard said David Gordon is an-unequaled universal genius

So you can see why David’s book reviews are worth collecting, studying,
and cherishing, and therefore why we chose to highlight them in this form.
In fact, all the way back in 1979, Murray N. Rothbard was already marveling
at David’s extraordinary intellect, the likes of which he had never before
‘I have been in the scholarly world for a long time, and it is my
considered opinion that you are a universal genius unequaled
in my experience. . . . The only flaw in your makeup is that you
don’t seem to have the slightest idea of what a genius you are.
The fact that your talents have so far gone unrecognized and untapped
is a horrible waste and injustice, and Ron Hamowy and
I are embarking on a personal crusade to do something about it.'”
