Thank you for the referral to Mark Estren, with whom I have been corresponding over the last few weeks. I have worked with many editors over the years and I find him to be exceptionally skilled and sharp, as well as a pleasure to work with. He has made many criticisms of my book, and suggestions, which I am working on now. I am very grateful to you for thinking of him and making the introduction.
