    Monsieur Heinrichs,

    I was already quite taken with your book "Thank you for Arguing.." when I read about what you label the "Chanticleer fallacy". Music to french ears...

    Move this book up to an earlier date! The way the world's going, I doubt anyone will be around to read it. (And I really want to.)

    Wish I could, Marco. I could use some money before the world ends.

    When will the book be available in India?

    We haven't been able to sell the rights in the UK, which covers the British commonwealth, Pankaj. But you'll be able to buy it as an e-book on Amazon (U.S.) in October.
