Probably not read because he’s boring. When I talk about writers, I’m largely talking about fiction writers, not simply educated individuals who write books. They’re not writers. A professional who writes about his profession is not a writer. This guy sounds like an economist who happens to write books. I promise you, his readership of any race is likely to be limited, because it’s likely to be boring. Most readers in America, read on a 4th grade level and liked to be entertained as well. Very few people read scholars, unless they dumb themselves down and become mildly entertaining.
