    He's giving good advice. There will always be an element of luck in publishing a book, which ones will become sensations and which ones will not be heard of again. The "dense forest" effect already exists, except that we don't see that there is a forest. I support this egalitarian method, though getting people to pay for things is becoming harder and harder. The magical thinking that one can (or worse, that one should) get something for nothing is hard to reverse.
