I am looking forward to this book talk. Mostly I am curious to see if the subject really supports a book--or could it better have been addressed by a long article? I know that guy is a good writer.

It does seem more like an essay topic, than book subject...However, Asim held his own on the Colbert Report and there's something to be said for that!
