Steve Schell –
I purchased the book recently and read it immediately. I can see that it provides many, many possible avenues of research that I have never contemplated, mostly because I was not aware of many. Having the links to these resources right in the ebook is so helpful. The value to be gotten from this book far exceeds its inexpensive cost.
