When you get to the U.S. and if you get lost, look for the State with people wearing a Stetson. Adam can help you

No problem Paul, you'll love it. Besides, Arizona is a damn big place.

Hey Drew, I figured you'd already had a couple of copies, but I know what you mean about the $$. If the big brown truck shows up at the door one more time this week my wife may get the gun.

I just tell my wife I gotta go out for something and do an intercept of the truck. Alot less hassle that way. (But even then she knows she gets my older toys, which usually prevents problems and actual encouragement for me to buy something new. It is great that she likes the shiny UW photo and video stuff, maybe even more than me :o)

Excellent review and beautiful prose, Steve! I could see you writing a book yourself someday... ;)

My only complaint with the book (I'm about 90% through it now) is that it's damn heavy and hard to hold up to try to read in bed! Then again, maybe I just need to hit the weights... :o

Thanks Bruce, I appreciate the kind words. I agree, it is a weighty volume. It should come with it's own Scottevest so we can get it on airplanes.

Cheers,
Steve
