Re: New book



His previous books, starting with The Pencil, are all fascinating.  I took
The Pencil with me on a two family camping vacation shortly after the book
was published -- and found myself constantly saying, stop, listen to this,
isn't this interesting, to anybody who would stand still.

Cheers. Edith
