Confident and proud? Or arrogant?

I rather like Derek Sivers. He’s an interesting guy with interesting ideas. And I still fondly remember his appearance on the Tim Ferris podcast back in 2015. And he has a new book out, which I’m sure is very good. But this is how he presents it on his website [c]:

I’m sure it’s just my English sensibilities, but the arrogance and confidence required to offer it up that way couldn’t make me want to read it any less. But hey, I applaud his confidence. He’s clearly happy with how it came out!
