Jose sent me this email, yesterday:

>On commenting upon Whyte's 'The Organization Man', you wrote: "This is an incredible book, I have been reading it all night and I am very excited...It is exactly what I have been thinking about".
>This made me think that there might be (at least?) two types of 'incredible' books: those that present things in a completely novel way (say, for example, The Perfume, by Patrick Suskind) and those that just concur with our views (as 'The Organization Man' does with yours).
>Have you ever ended up deeming a book 'incredible', which was totally at odds with your ideas?
