Thank you for including this quote:
A charismatic demagogue was elevated and trusted because he was captivating and because researching facts, as well as listening to dull doctors who have done their homework, is hard and time-consuming.

I've really enjoyed reading your thoughts on a chapter by chapter basis. I hope you'll join us for other Flat Book reads, it's been fun! :)

Thanks so much for letting me jump in and I hope to have time to join another one! Discussion while reading is my favorite :)

Very nice last update and summary. Even though I didn't really care for this book, I agree with you that it will definitely have it's own set of readers who will find it interesting. Very much enjoyed following all your updates.
Thanks and enjoyed reading your thoughts and discussions with you :)
