Promotional: My New Column For The AMERICAN SPECTATOR

I have just signed up for a new gig as twice-monthly book reviewer for the American Spectator blog (or possibly the The American Spectator blog—I have mislaid my style book).

The column is titled “Shelf Life,” and my mid-February contribution is here: a review of Noson Yanofsky’s The Outer Limits of Reason.

The Spectator editors have generously allowed me to pick my own books for review.  I have found from experience over the years, though (actually <gulp> decades) that book reviewing is a good way to learn things I didn't know before, so I've asked them to send me some books out of left field—I mean, nothing to do with math, China, Italian opera, the National Question, or the human sciences—if they think I might have something to say about them.
