In reading "Closer Together, Further Apart" I find my experience mirrored in a well-written engaging little book. The author's joint voice is clear; I feel as if I am having an intelligent conversation with people who know more than I do but do not condescend to the reader. I look forward to picking it up, and when I have to put it down I feel that my time with it has been well spent.
