Someone had this fantastic idea for

"Anti-book" recommendations: Make it easy to find books that _challenge_ a particular view point.

Reading a book that argues for bigger government? Find books that challenge and argue against that idea. Reading books on atheism? Find books that point it where their arguments fall short.

Criticism can seem unfriendly and even hostile, but reading well-argued opposing positions is the fastest way to learn anything.

Now, where can we source these data points from: What assertion does a book supports or refutes?

How to uniquely represent assertions in the first place? Is this going to be as complex as building an ontology of entire human beliefs (not just knowledge)?
