I agree that this is an awesome subject! I understand that the author is sucessful and maybe does not need the money.....Then why didn't we have a complete interview?
Because he in fact, "is" writing a book. Additionally, I asked to publish the snippet (as explained above) because I thought it interesting; he in fact had removed it from his site.
Why wasn't the thread prefaced with a warning that the interview would be cut short in order to tease us into buying a book? As you said, he doesn't need the money.
Frankly, because I didn't think about it, and I felt there was "ample," interesting content for discussion. Moreover, if you read the thread this fact is made known in the very second comment (and then some). All that said, your point is taken, and corrected at TUC.
Just as the interview was about to get to the real meat and potatoes, we are whisked away to buy the book! If your intent was to stir up conversation....then why not give us the complete interview? Why? Because it is an attempt to profit from the traffic and interests of people on ATS.
Once again, you exhibit your "foot and mouth disease" through ad hominem attacks about facts and people you are ignorant of. I have have no dog in this race, nor do I profit from anything. As for Sanchez, his book isn't available and won't be for some time, and when the time comes, if he breaks even it will be a miracle!
I say again, if you can't participate in a positive way, or if this thread is distasteful to you--go to the next thread.
This is a perfect example of why I do not frequent other sites similer to ATS. There are people who tease inquiring minds into reading articles and then they ask them to purchase something. I have only been a member for a short time, but I have been an avid reader for years.
I have NEVER read a thread that cut short the information to sell a book. It is not an attack, just a complete let-down. I would love to have a conversation on the subject but all the info wasn't available.
Then my advice is "don't punish yourself."
