  1. I’m having a hard time finding a reason to actually buy into this. It’s just really self righteous. You get this self righteous priestly feel to the way he phrases things, like “good family life.” “Getting it done right.” And a lot of false humility. And Bill Gate’s “forward,” it’s a like 150 characters. It’s a less than a paragraph. The publisher’s milking this one to its bloody pulpy ends.
