Hi, Max. Glad to hear from you. I would have cc'd you with my review but I
couldn't find your email address. Please feel free to include my review,
which obviously was meant to encourage people to read the book despite my
differences over one or another question. Next time you're in NYC, let's

announce it to Marxmail.
