Then it arrived. I read the acknowledgements section first of course and there was Bill Cameron, Sean Ferrell and Jeff Somers, called out in public for being helpful. I'll be speaking to them sternly about that of course.
I picked up the book when I needed something to read during lunch.
And I couldn't stop reading. I came back from lunch and didn't return to my computer for another two hours. Not until I was done reading.
