  1. Greg: Congratulations on another engaging review!

    Your reviews consistently the best parts of Saturday editions of the WSJ, and have made going straight to Reviews section to look for the latest Greg Crouch piece a Saturday ritual (and competition) at our house.

    Your review pieces always insightful and entertaining, and live on in thought after reading—including carving some great sentences into permanent memory (e.g. this article’s ‘first ascent vs. Microsoft’ and final sentences).

    Great Stuff!
    Steve & Patty and Isabel Michiels
