< My current book project, working title is A Talent for Living: 20 World
Class Thinkers Crack the Myths
of Mortality, is designed to communicate certain specific qualities which
cause us to want to break
through the myths of glorifying and tolerating death. Committed to the
project are Ray Kurzweil,
F-2030, Roy Walford, Max More, Stewart Brand, and Megatrendsí John
Naisbitt. I am currently
pitching to Barbara Walters, Arnold Schwarzennager, Susan Sontag and others.>

Arnie is a `world class thinker' ??!! I'm sure he's a smart and quite rich
businessman, and it's a good PR move to include him, but should you then
find a more general or apposite word than `thinkers' in the title?

(Looking forward to reading the book!)
