On bullshit

USA Today (which I reached via booktrade.info) carries a report that Professor Harry G. Frankfurt -- a philosopher at Princeton -- has a bestseller on his hands with a mere 47-page essay (published in book form) entitled On Bullshit.

Well, this looks like fun. And given that USA Today cannot even bring itself to print the proper title, but refers to the book throughout as On Bull--, it seems that an essay on the subject is well overdue.

How did he manage to confine it to a mere 47 pages?
