Oliver Kamm Finds a true Howler

Read it all.

But here are the key bits:

He has a new book of essays by Noam Chomsky -
And emblazoned on the front cover is the bold message "'The world's greatest public intellectual' - Observer".

Kamm knows the original quotation:
The mighty Chomsky, the world's greatest public intellectual, is prone to playing fast and loose.

Bodley Head are the publishers. I will take special care in the future to avoid buying their books. This is playing fast and loose in a very special way.
