One journalist sent me an email: "My editor refused." And an editor at a different publication said: "Someone higher up refused."
Luckily, there is Time magazine. The issue goes on sale next week but the article can already be read here. This is the Asian version that will be sold all over the continent. Since the book itself is sold only in Malaysia, Singapore and one bookshop in Australia, it is hoped that interested readers can make their way to Amazon.com :-)
