NEAL STEPHENSON….Eugene Volokh thinks everyone

NEAL STEPHENSON….Eugene Volokh thinks everyone should read Neal Stephenson’s Cryptonomicon. I agree. If you haven’t read it yet, drop whatever you’re doing and go buy it.

When you’re done you should go read Stephenson’s other books too. They aren’t as good as Cryptonomicon, but that’s a pretty high bar. They’re awfully good.
