Thank you, Shelagh and Abe. You are as ever very kind.
This is my favorite textbook project to date by far. I feel really good that it will be available for as little as $29 (its competitors retail for over $200). Price point was a major criterion in my choice of my current publisher. Just as important to me, it offers a real choice in terms of approach, tone and engagement for students. I hope the incredibly loyal adopters of my previous editions with different publishers will find it and like it as much as they did its predecessors.
