I must say, I always thought it might enable sooner access to some of the concepts in Richard's books if versions could be published that were akin to Key Facts that one comes across as revision aids. A younger readership, especially at a translation to other language level, might then grasp these concepts much sooner and as we know, anything that gets in earlier than theism can only be a good thing! I wonder if us in the west will do well to find ways to aggregate literacy, more enabling accessibility of a global readership?

The comment from the audience that mentioned the irony of Richard talking so freely whilst Salman was ostracised was a moot point and especially moreso with Richard's response that it is a travesty he was kept away at all.
