    Thanks for posting these links. I looked up your book a few days ago; do you have any plans for a Kindle edition anytime soon?

      Yes, I'm working with Lulu on it now. They are just moving slowly.

        Kahuna; Am in the process of reading the book after recently receiving your inscribed copy as ordered. Am not very far as yet, but already finding it interesting. Found your quote on page 17 from James Truslow particularly applicable, in my mind, to what goes on today in many of these forums and our society as a whole. You might post some of it in another more contentious forum. Also find your comments on your short career as a professional, and the reasons for leaving to be spot on from what I have observed over my long tenure. The terrible schedule, which I briefly observed in 1971 while shadowing a pro from the old Riverside council in So Cal, was enough to put me off; added to it was the under $8K starting salary of the time and the lack of youth contact.

        Will likely post additional comments as I work through the meat of the book. Thanks.
