il s'agit de lecteurs dont l'auteur parle
il dit qu'il a rencontré, pour son livre, un excellent public
et que les lecteurs "engaged my book very thoughtfully"
merci d'éclairer ma lanterne

    bien sûr, voilà....

    these two groups proved an excellent audience for the book. Indeed they engaged it much more thoughtfully than the others readers

    Maybe there's a "in" missing? "They engaged in it etc..."? (ils s'y sont engagés, immergés)
    Otherwise it doesn't makes sense to me.
    Let's wait for an English native!

    It should be "engaged with it", does the French engager avec (WR dictionary) not mean the same ?

    Ah, I see. s'engager à then ? I do think 'with' rather than 'in' which would be for an activity - eg engage in furniture restoration.
