Got his book today.  Hard to tell if it's a deep read or I'm just stupid.

Yes, T-dog, we know which one you'll say it is...

Which book--old or new?

AA meeting going on down the hall.

That sorta read like I was intending to be an asshole. I wasn't. It was the potential for association with exactly the "12 step" thing that I was reacting to. Nothing against an ordered program toward sobriety, but I don't think that's the sort of thing the author is trying to convey.

I'm sure we're not the first ones to note the similarity.

Not sure I'm smart enough to tackle Maps of Meaning... plus, it was near $50 last I looked.

The other one is worse. It's easy to read but also easy to wander away from into thoughts of your own that prevent you from staying focused. Skim first, then go back and read attentively.
