Which is why it seems to me the most productive thing is to wait and see what
it is before deriding the book for what it isn't, which a lot of people were
doing. It would be as wrong headed to praise the book for what it might be as
it would be to diss the book for what it might be...speculate on what it might
be, sure, that's half the fun...but let it run its course before making
declarations about what it is.
