When I wrote The Righteous Mind, I tried to keep the writing clear and simple. I don’ t like non-fiction that is ornate or academic in style. I got some positive feedback on the writing when my son Max, age 6 (almost 7) picked up the book and started reading. His comprehension is pretty close to zero, but still — it’s an easy book to pronounce! Here’s Max reading from p. 4-6 of the paperback, on nativism and empricism. At 43 seconds, Max pronounces “vague” as “vag-yoo,” and my wife laughs in the next room.
