I never thought that a busy scholar like him would take the time to read an email from a total stranger and even reply to it. I felt really honored.
I emailed McChesney to thank him for writing the enlightening and entertaining book. I’ve rediscovered the joy of reading because of it.
Yes, I do read lots of stuff. Every day I read articles from various websites. Sometimes, I also read newspapers and magazines.
But reading a book is a totally different experience. It requires quite a long attention span from an individual.
The focus needed to read a book, and more importantly, understand its contents, has enabled me to engage in self-reflection and find some quiet moments for myself.
