Yes Sir!

I have always respected Prof. Dyson and this speech has inspired even more. Telling the truth as only he can. Don't hate, just listen and tell the truth as well. I am going to buy the book along with others by him and certainly hope there are audiobooks and on Audible as well!

Always on point

I sought out MED's writings after meeting him in person & appreciate the way he weaves intellectualism with down home sensibility and a current-ness that is often prophetic into a tapestry of clear relevance.
