I often encounter men of my age group (the not so young cohort) who say that they don’t read fiction. There is sort of an implied attitude that non-fiction is serious and fiction, is well, perhaps frivolous. Something that they might squeeze in as an indulgence every once in a great while.

They need to read “In Light of What We Know” which is a very good novel, but one that has more history, religion, carpentry, sociology and coverage of major world events than probably all of the books on the top ten non-fiction best seller list.

I am not a fan of non-punctuation dialogue unless it’s done by Cormac McCarthy and I really like to see a little white space on every page (I was tempted at times to increase the font size on my Kindle just to reduce the number of words on the screen), but this book was so good that those issues were, for me, inconsequential.
