I just wanted to say I really liked the "homework problems with solutions" section with the traders and transactions. (I very much like all the Q & A sections, but this section in particular gave me just enough help nudging along to poke at and figure out each solution.)

I wish there were more examples like this to help me "explore" concepts rather than the passive reading all other books promote.

Keep up the good work!

Re: 4.6 Putting it all into practice

I just wanted to backup Murray on this point, especially the words of encouragement in your book, that is, " should try first to get some practice!". Speaking for myself, had you not written those words, I think I would have probably gone straight into reading the solution.

Also, I would like to point out that having quizzes in the body of a chapter is also encouraging rather than have a list of exercises at the end. I also think that the difficulty level of your quizzes are at the right balance, as having difficult ones will only put people off.
