One of my advisors, with whom I am related, tells me to read a chapter aloud. Another advisor, with whom I am related, tells me to relax and talk a bit about the book.
In the book I talk about the foundation of American ethics. When I discuss the Judeo-Christian roots will I alienate my progressive friends and relatives?
'splain something to me - I stood in front of classes for 30 years or so. More than once I lectured on a topic, struggling to keep a chapter ahead of the class. I wrote this darn book. I SHOULD know the material. Why am I nervous?
Well, wish me luck. I'll let you know how is goes!
