But the whole point of these essays is that, although elusive and intimate, thinking --like sex!-- is a most natural human activity: we all do it (and, as with sex: we all do it as well as we have learned to do it.)

@fuffz: The doctor wrote essays on 'thinking effectively' and how rarely it can be found in practice. Your comments reek of ineffective thought. What a shame. Silence is a virtue.
