Goddam, he’s so good.

Back to the Book

Then there is the nature of books themselves.

They remain the place for people to actually think things through. To take a point of view and explain it at length. To take a position and have the time and space to really justify it.

So unplug the TV, let your newspaper subscription lapse, wait a few years for the book to come out, and then you’ll know what really happened. Which way would you rather have it, quick and wrong, or late and right?
