I recently opened up a mysterious package that arrived at my front door, and discovered the German edition of Critical Decisions. At first I assume the title was somehow referring to me as a gutter rat, or signifying that my book was the kind of thing you can find in a sewer.
But now I have discovered that the title means something like: “Good Advice Is Possible”. That is a nice positive message. I hope that goes over well in the country that my paternal grandfather came from.
