the popular one to the effect that writ

'"Mark Twain exploded this fallacy
well when he said that there were t
three ways of pleasing an author—first
to tell him that you have read one of
his books; second, to tell him you have
read all hi* books, and, third, to ujk
him to let you read the manuscript of
his forthcoming book. The first way
