Thanks, everyone! I think you'll enjoy this one.

And I direct your attention to the top of page 241. (And p.49)

Chris contributed about 20 sidebars of mostly anecdotal stuff.

It'll be a while, but not as long as...

Roadie - which was released in '08 - just recently came out for eReaders.

Wow, 201 level class finals are really easy at Marquette. Plus they can't punctuate.

Finished. Unequivocal recommendation. Buy it. Read it. Get your teammates to read it. Require any new teammies to read it. Have a test.

Jamie, I think you covered just about everything, and did it well with humor and stories. Especially the last few chapters on teams and goals, great reminders at this time of year.

I'm 100 pages in and already sad it's going to end soon. So good.

+1 to everything Creaky is saying.
