Excellent! if you ever wanted to know what your revealing about yourself in the way you write this is a book to read. The chapter on language skill mapping was very interesting. This analysis has to be done by a computer that can do word counts. Anything written from blog posts, presidential press conferences and Shakespeare are grist for Pennebaker's analysis. He gives sites so you can have your own writing analyzed. (I didn't try them) Well worth the read.
