Elizabeth Warren has been one of few public figures famously willing to put actual rhetorical force
behind the notion that behind every American success story lies a web of civic and personal support, and probably a million small kindnesses as well. John Scalzi takes this notion and runs with it: he's written a thorough and eloquent accounting
of how he's gotten to where he is, from a very humble background, and how that made the duty to pay it forward obvious and inescapable.
