I'm very impressed and excited at the acceptance and popularity of this book. Having had the opportunity to withness and share, casually, in the development of some the stories,its a marvel to withness this gust of talent and greatness as expressed by all who have read the book, and made their comments. Its a privilage to be part of this greatness and pray for a greater tomorrow.
