Vanity: My Favorite Sin II *

Scott Adams, the dilbert fella, has published a new book. You can download it from here. He posted the link on his blog. I really like him and I often wish that I could write like him. Well.. I wish that I could write like a lot of people but alas.... He is so confident about the success of the book that he has written in his post, "I’m giving it away because I found out that most people who read it end up either recommending it or buying the paper version as gifts for other people." Now thats something. I haven't read it yet but if its even close to his other works it would be awesome.

Added later:

I wish to write like these people:
Scott Adams, Salinger, Palahnuik, Bachchan, Javed Akhtar, Douglas Adams, Somerset, Baez, Swaminathan, etc.
Bloggers: Yazad, Ravikiran

People who are so good that I don't even have the courage to wish to write like them:
Gulzar, Shaw, Ahmad Faraz, Dinkar, David Gilmour, Bob Dylan, Ian Anderson, Camus, Satre, Miranda July, etc.
Bloggers: Inky, Coolcat

And last but not the least, famous people I think I can write better than:
Shobha De, Chetan Bhagat, Isaac Asimov(if you are raising your eyebrows you haven't read his crappy works), Sarnath Bannerjee. There are others in the list also but I don't want people yelling at me.
Bloggers: Once again I would like to keep my mouth shut.

Nice clock. Check it out.

*Original title of the post was God's Debris, name of Scott Adams' new book.
