Seth Pearce has a very kind review of Heads in the Sand as a "Living Liberally Page Turner" feature. He says "I really hope that Barack Obama and the other Democratic candidates running in 2008 read Matthew Yglesias's Heads in the Sands, and take its vision of a comprehensive liberal national security policy seriously." I hope so, too, but even more I just hope that you, the blog readers of the world, will buy the book. Saving the world would be nice, but it's sales that really matter.
