Tomorrow arrived today!!!

I'm ecstatic!

The book is just a gorgeous thing in and of itself. Brian had hinted at some of the artistic choices and technical innovations that they were hoping to incorporate into the book, but the final product exceeds, I am sure, their wildest expectations.

Congratulations, Brian. (And Charlie, and everyone who made this a reality.) You should be really proud of this book. Like Mom's Cancer, it's more than a book - it's a conversation between author and reader about something that really matters to us.

(Incidentally, looking through the book reminds me once again that, for all his self-effacement, Brian is a hell of an artist.)

He is, he is, indeed.

Now, let's see how many of us can capture a picture of WHTTWOT with a cat. That's a tradition that will go well with Nancy G's proposal that we all visit bookstores and turn one copy of it face-outward on the shelf (in the comments on the linked blogpost.)

WHTTWOT hasn't arrived in these parts, but i'll be sure to request the library purchase a bunch of copies--1 for each branch! and i'll hike down to borders this am and look for it again.

re sherwood's/nancy g's suggestion: that's easy to do. i'll just incorporate it into my routine of turning the Neocons' books face down.

Yeah, what is it with the cats?

Ronnie, thanks for your enthusiasm and kind words here and privately. I blush.

And Xtreme, thanks also. I once mentioned that having my book in a library is the second-best type of immortality I can imagine (the first-best being "never dying"). That means a lot.

Brian: Best part of filling out the liberry's request-for-purchase form was finding a recent review: Publishers Weekly's The Beat had great things to say:
"groundbreaking" is what I remember right off the bat.

Congrats!! and no, it hsn't arrived in the World of 29 Years Ago yet. :)

Wow: who will ever believe that a natural herb can cure tinnitus, i never believe that this will work i have spend a lot when getting drugs from the hospital to keep me healthy,i went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, One day I was in the office going through the internet when i see so many people testifying about Dr Williams herbal medicine on how they where been cured from tinnitus and so many other similar body problem, so i mail him.He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly. Before I knew what is happening after two weeks To my greatest surprise after patiently going according to instruction given to me by Dr Williams, all the ringing in my ears stop gradually and up thing this moment i have not experience anything ringing in my ears. I want to say a big thanks to Dr Williams who God have sent to heal his people with his natural medicine i pray that God will bless you for the good work you are doing.for all who are still suffering from this disease, you can also contact Dr Williams through his email address on;drwilliams098765@gmail.com
