Before I went to bed last night, I responded to Tim's Congrats and 
Carole's kind introduction of the book to SWHCLSIG. When I checked my 
emails this morning, I was thrilled by the additional congrat's and 
support from Bob, Bill, and June. Thanks again! Christopher and I had 
spent numerous hours (if not days), made many telephone calls, and 
exchanged hundreds of emails to complete the book project. It's great to 
see some fruits of our labor. We are also very grateful to the authors 
(including Carole) and reviewers who had contributed their time and 
expertise to the book. As Bill said, I hope this book will help our 
community to establish a solid footing on which our field can move 
forward. It's been a great privilege to work with all of you.

Best,

-Kei
