Scott’s enduring interest in the book is what spurred me to publish the revised and expanded 2nd edition.
Scott is one of the readers of the original article who managed to snag one of the very few copies in existence of the 2017 print-on-demand 1st edition of the book when it was available through Amazon.
A few months ago, in a chat, he expressed an interest in a new copy, as his original printed copy has seen some wear and tear from being handed to colleagues.

Scott’s complete foreword is part of the Free Sample, which also contains the Preface and three short chapters.
