I’m glad Andy posted links to those two books. I have had copies of both of them for more than a month now and have intended to post reviews here. (Things have been a little busy in our nation’s capital, though.)
I am pretty strict about my reviews: I won’t write up a book unless I’ve read every word. It might surprise some of you to learn that this is the exception, and not the rule, of book reviews — at least in my experience. And as the author of two books, I know how frustrating it is when someone misstates your case or mischaracterizes your narrative — even if the reviews are positive.
So I’ve been working my way through both books and will post something more when I’m done. But I will say that I wholeheartedly endorse Andy’s sense that they’ll make good Christmas gifts. Buy a couple copies of each and tell your friends, too.
