Is Putin reading my book?

It’s eerie, but pleasing. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s recent New York Times op-ed piece includes a peroration against the notion of American exceptionalism. So does my book, and for the same reason: all men are created equal.

I hope Mr. Putin is reading the rest of my book.
