trenchant and pithy. Perfectly explains things.
Well-researched, original, well-played, well-thought, well done. Impressive and useful to anyone who likes to know things in smart ways.
There are from time to time works of social and academic commentary that emerge from the rest for their completeness, their thoughtfulness, and their originality. Jacob Lentz's work on the election of Jesse Ventura is one of these. If you read this, you will have a better and more total understanding of a host of subjects that matter in the world. He is hardly out of Harvard and he has already done what most people wait most of their careers to accomplish. Well done, sir.
