In essence?

Randall Munroe is not always the most chromatic*, but he is succinct.

*I can't find the right word here, but Chromatic (meaning coloured) sort of works here.

I hope to pick it up soon - seems like a book worth reading.


jadedog:

    Skeptics might ask, “Well, how do we precisely define intolerance, and who gets to make that determination?” This is admittedly a potential point of contention (one that I plan to write about soon)

I'll be interested when the author writes on this question which is the crux of the issue.

    While we may each have somewhat different opinions on precise definitions, I believe that we can (and should) easily come to a consensus

I disbelieve this.
