Alan, I can honestly say that I have been waiting for this as well. ;-)

Years of work finally produces a completed book! I can't even begin to tell the list how excited I am about it. It was truly a pleasure and honor working with Valerie on the book.

I wrote the instruction sections, but Adam provided the photos of himself for the instruction sections. I did the book layout and design, but without Adam's improved graphics of the enlarged symbols we would not have a book...so this was a true co-authorship....
