I wish it was next Thurday when I'm home. This is a book I want to read and this should be a very interesting talk.

I really enjoyed the first half (or third) of his book, but found the second part excruciatingly painful to read as it seemed to change drastically in his voice/approach. Still haven't had an opportunity to hear him speak, but it sounds like that could be worthwhile...
