Hi John!

Still reading the book - which is wonderful - thought I'd read it through 
and then return to the first part and look at it in more detail. Am about 
three quarters through; its very densely written and deserves a slower read 
than some. With Easter weekend looming large, reading time is at a premium 
- perhaps we could start serious discussion say on Monday? although I will 
be delighted to read other comments posted before then I probably won't be 
prepared to join in until then.

Take care
