For all who participated in the threads below, thanks so much. I'm honored that so many people cared enough to ask a question for such an obscure book. These days, most technical authors don't write for the money. We write because we have something to say that we think is important or interesting. Forums like this one help me validate the fact that these ideas are worth discussing. You have my heart felt thanks.

If it's not too much to ask, if you've read it or are reading through it, I would love to see your honest opinion in an review for the book. And if you like what you've read here, I'd love for you to pick up the book (after the drawing) and let me know what you think. I know that availability is limited. The book has done better than we expected, so we got caught by surprise, but you can still get an e-book version for your ipads and iphones here:

Thanks again for hanging out with me this week. Hope to see you around.

And thank YOU too, Bruce. This has been one of the more interesting book promos I've seen on the Ranch.

Thank you Mr. Bruce, you are a great and passionate author and your books are highly respected in the industry.
Thank you for being here and I hope to see you in the Ranch much more.
As Mr. Paul said, this was one of the busiest promos ever.
