I'm also reading The Ego and His Own, and it's pretty difficult. But since taking an interest in leftism, half the books and articles I read now make me feel like an idiot, so it's ok.

Also is How Not to Die worth a read if I've already watched his talk at Google?

I recommend reading the new translation of The Ego and His Own called The Unique and its Property!

You can find it in the sidebar of f/Egoism.

Would 'Ego and His Own' be worth a read even if you aren't an Anarchist, or an Egoist'?

English isn't my first language and i haven't finished the book yet, but I found it a hard read, stirner does a lot of repetitions and "ranting" and the language feels old.

On the other side, the content of the book is still relevant today, and you should read about anarchist egoism anyways, since it's quite influential in modern anarchist thinking. I don't have any more "modern" authors to recommend to you to read instead right now, thought.

If you're into older philosophy. I found it to be a pretty tough read.

The new translation is much better.
