We Don't Need No...

Salon recently posted a great interview with Neal Stephenson, on his latest book(s), The Baroque Cycle. Here's a quote to which I can definitely relate:

"I'm in this history book club, which is not all geeks but it's definitely got some serious geeks in it. It's been going for four or five years maybe. We're all consistently dumbfounded by how interesting history is when you read it yourself compared to how dull it was when they made you study it in school. We can't figure out why there's that gap. I think they try to cover too broad a sweep at once so you never get down to the individual people and their stories. It's all generalities."
