For some of you, no more needs to be said. If Bill Whittle's work is new to you, on the other hand, boy, you have a treat waiting for you!
As with all of Bill's essays, it is flawed, awkward, shot through with annoying and distracting pop-culture references... and contains passages of such brilliance that you gasp in wonder and forget everything else.
Take your time, and read it all. (Part I here; Part II here.)
And if this whets your appetite for more, by all means, buy the book. (Or just read the essays online for free. Me, I did both; I find that I like to have extra copies of the book to hand out to people.)
