I’ve really appreciated your kind words; and that you’ve picked up on some of my own favorite parts; and even assiduously avoid a spoiler in a tweet here. I’m lucky to count you as a reader

I lose a ton of sleep over that, and I know it'll never be perfect. But hopefully all in all it makes the discussion about how specialized or broad to be--one that I think is important to everyone--more productive and interesting. Thank you again so much for sharing this.

This is such a great compliment, thank you. I was hoping for that, although hard balance to strike. ...So I also really appreciated the NPR review that said I spend “a great deal of time giving credit to dissenters where credit is due.”

I certainly also agree that good athletes have qualities that really help across sports. Anyway, appreciate the discussion!

I wondered about this of course, so made sure to cite studies like one where developing soccer players were matched for skill at age 11 and tracked for several years. And those who tried more sports in that window improved more

I was five minutes from emailing to ask if I should read The Overstory. Clearly a sign that I should read The Overstory. Sold!

A few days before the playoffs started, my father died. I wrote about it then; I’ve heard a lot of stories of fathers, and of parents since. Thank you for all of them. I’m spending the morning with my kids, feeing lucky. Happy father’s day to everyone.

I’d love that. And I suspect it won’t be long before I’m back. ...I’ve visited for enough interviews over the years that I know my way around North Wolfe St parking;)

So glad you enjoyed Joe. ...I'm the one who should thank and for taking a lot of time for me when they weren't entirely sure what I was up to--as far as what my writing project would ultimately look like--just that I was very interested in the program.

So glad you're enjoying Stuart. And now that I think of it, Hopkins is home to an important character in each of my books...and I can't think of another institution for which that's true. Must be a neat place;)
