I’m happy to say that the first review of my book Leviathans at the Gold Mine has appeared and that is it positive. You can read the review here. The author of the review is David Eller — whose textbook I’ve used in my intro class before, but who I’ve never met. The most frequent adjectives he uses to describe me and the book are ‘ingenious’ ‘exciting’ and ‘fascinating’, although I’m most flattered by the idea that one of my chapters is “calm but ultimately searing”. I don’t think I planned to be ‘searing’ but… I’m glad that Eller found it so.
I’ve also been told that the book has been adopted for use in two classes, so I’m glad to see that someone is taking the time read it after all the time I put in to writing it. So… thanks to everyone for their continued (and positive) reception of the volume!
