“*…+ I specialize in thinking about thinking. Indeed *…+ this topic has fueled my
fire ever since I was a teen-ager. And one of my firmest conclusions is that wealways think by seeking and drawing parallels to things we know from our past,and that we therefore communicate best when we exploit examples, analogies,and metaphors galore, when we avoid abstract generalities, when we use verydown-to-earth, concrete, and simple language, and when we talk directly about
our own experiences” (SL, xv).
