Nice point, Kirby.  

Jason:  Just tonight about 12 of my students in my high school computer programming club (more than half of them are girls, with minorities being highly represented*) began to "devour" your book.  I can't think of a better term to describe the way they went at it.  Some started on page 1, others went right to the turtles :-)  Seven or Eight of them have volunteered to be "official" reviewers of your book.  They will be going through it word by word, I imagine.

(* = I have two Nepali girls, four Latinas, one Chinese girl, three girls heavily into Manga, and the usual assortment of boys....)

Thanks for sharing!
