Hey Jon,

Just wanted to say thanks for the opportunity to participate in the early access program. Your style is quite enjoyable and you've made what can be a very dry topic into a compelling read.

"By which I mean “convenient for the purposes of introducing the chapter”—not, you know, accurate as such."

LMAO!

Cheers,

Thanks! I don't really think of it as a "gripping page-turner" as such, but hopefully I've lightened the material a little bit.

I'm glad someone else likes that too. It's my favourite bit of the whole book, I think. Sad, isn't it? smilie
