That's great to hear.  And as I said, I think there is value in the
book as it is now, but even more promise.  I hope to see an improved
2nd edition at some point in the future!

I realize that writing is hard and takes courage (you're putting
yourself out in the spotlight, for reviewers like myself to come and
beat you up :)  I really hope this experience will not put a damper on
your energy for continuing to write.  Sorry if I came across as harsh,
but I figured the best way to repay your effort was with an honest
review, even if it wasn't the most flattering.

All the best,


ps - sorry for the URL typo, thanks to those who figured it out and
quickly corrected it.
