Just checking in. This was right up front at the library, so I grabbed it. Turned out to be large print, but I still need glasses. ūüėé
We have read a lot of books on rationality & critical thinking, so to be honest I'm not optimistic on this one, but perhaps I'll be surprised.

Your eyes must be as bad as mine. My wife laughs at how large I have the font on my Kindle.

I'm hooked after listening to Pinker's interview about the book on "Talks at Google":

I just ordered the book and I don't know how long it will be before I see it. I will be reading the book and hope to participate periodically.
