For my first post about this book, I'm going to come out swinging and make a totally superficial comment that has absolutely nothing to do with the writing or the content. And here it is.

Am I the only one who doesn't like the font used for 80% of the text? It's too bold and serif-y, and it's harder to read than the lovely sans-serif font used in the setups for each of the essays.

And now that I have outed myself as someone who thinks more about the visual aesthetics of a book than its actual ideas, I'm going to retreat back into my corner and keep reading.

This makes me wonder if I'm completely unobservant, because I honestly hadn't noticed the font. Someone asked about it at the reading he did here at my bookstore, and he said he chose it because it's the same font Bob Dylan used for his book, and Chuck figured it'd be his only chance in life to relate himself to Dylan.

I think Dylan's stupid, though.

Anyway, I've noticed a huge number of books mention what font's being used and who chose it, and I'm always like, "Looks like Times New Roman to me," so I sort of suck.
