First: Thank you for serving on the jury. Not everyone understands civic responsibility. Second: Being a parent makes this experience so much more acute. I still remember my own reaction when watching a news report on television about a child abuse case right after my son was born. Before kids: detached and distant. After kids: personal and real. Third: I hope you do not post the verdict. The only way to properly judge if someone heard all the evidence and testimony as you did. Knowing the verdict would just create needless noise in the comments.

The best technical e-books are the ones that release corrections (updates) to the buyer for free. Unfortunately not many do that, but the ones that do have my loyalty and my money. Who wants to refer to an errata page? Not me. Jeff you have my money. The format, content, and price of your book are just right. The only way it could be better is if HyperLink books would download directly to my Kindle instead of making me take extra manual steps to get it there. They should offer that option for all their .mobi books (and no, the books don't have to be sold through Amazon).

While money is not a good motivator, the lack of money is an excellent demotivator.
