If you want to watch Megan and Tyler Cowen discuss the book, you can check out this AEI event this evening at 5:30 eastern time–it will be shown live on line if you are nowhere near DC.
Incidentally, in 2004, I collected a series of essays that I had written, and I self-published a book. Prior to publication, I sent the manuscript to my former thesis adviser, Robert Solow, hoping he would write an endorsement that I could put on the cover. He sent me a peevish letter in response, saying that he looked at one of the first essays in the book and saw that one of my citations was to a “blogger,” and he thought that this showed a total lack of rigor and seriousness on my part.
That blogger was Megan McArdle.
