I'm very pleased to have my book reviewed in the Washington Post, 4/19/09, especially by a knowledgeable journalist like Seth Shulman. His praise certainly wasn't unqualified - in general he seemed to think my focus was too broad. But he called me a "good explainer," and pointed out some of the more interesting passages in the book. So I can accept that!
