While agreeing with the need for discernment, I wonder if anyone can be completely or even consistently ‘cool’, a word she uses repeatedly. In similar vein, I have begun on the book The Tyranny of Distance, a history of early Australia from a geographical angle. Two contrasting perspectives… I shall see how these would work out.
