It seems like you're getting a fair amount of press, but I guess that's the advantage of releasing a book such as yours at such a perfectly relevant time, since the current presidential election seems to have a large concern with difference in rhetorical style and apparent intelligence of the candidates. I hope your book sales are reflecting that.

I also like the fact that the sentence quoted from your book near the end of the article was deliciously long--42 words--and complex. A nice counterexample to presidential speech. I also noticed quite a bit of alliteration, which I found interesting. A rhetorical move of a different kind?
