From a New York Times post on David Remnick's forthcoming Obama biography

An earlier version of this post misquoted Mr. Remnick on his comparison between the book and a New Yorker article he had previously written. He said the book would not be a “pumped up” version of the article; he did not say that it would not be a “pimped out” version of the article.

Actually, like many such books this, while likely to be rather good, will still be both a pumped and pimped out version of the original 12,000 word article.
