King Part 2, Day 1 July 20: Questions

Part 2: Let's say up to p. 256, where the "Postscript" (mostly about his car accident) section begins? We can address that part on Friday.

Q1. Compared to the 1st 1st part of the book, did the 2nd part surprise you? Why/why not?

Q2. Based on Part 2 of the book, what do you think King would say if asked about formal learning?

Q3. King says you can’t turn bad writer into a competent one. Are there limits to “learning”?

REMINDER: We'll start Gawande's Complications on Tuesday July 27. ("Part 1: Fallibility")
