a compliment

I've never been very good at accepting compliments, but today I did receive a nice one from a friend in Germany who practices Zen Buddhism:
Thought I'd let you know that an American lady in our group here recently 
borrowed your book from the library. I asked her about it yesterday and she 
replied that, although she hasn't finished it yet, she really likes it.  She 
said "I can't put my finger on it, but it's missing that typical tone that every 
other Buddhist teacher uses."
I'm not sure whether her comment speaks well or badly of the book (paper original or the revised and electronic), but I am happy if someone imagines I'm not the same.

Oh well, it's probably the cuss words.
