    you don't spend the entire book straining to make simple concepts sound complicated

    •  oh, should I hire you as my editor? (0+ / 0-)

      I write here for a general audience which means having to explain somewhat obscure ideas in simpler language.  Occasionally I experiment with flipping back and forth between the way my folks & I naturally talk about things (e.g. "entropy gradients spawn dissipative structures"), and the writing style that's intended for a general audience (e.g. analogies with dumpsters behind restaurants).  

      I'd sooner not have to explain things in general-readership language but doing that would lose readers.

      "Minus one vote for the Democrat" equals "plus one vote for the Republican." Arithmetic doesn't care about your feelings.
