    I wrote few books myself: Poetry & Philosophy (with Pastel Drawings & Esquisses*).
    >>> But I never tried to get them published.

    Rich, sweet! I didn't know. Amir has a book about Unix and now yours. I know 2 does not necessarily mean anything on its own but is there something about audio enthusiasts that make them competent and driven to write books having to do with computers/software?

    I love how you discredit Michael Fremmer on page 42! Just perusing the preview, it's chock full of graphs and handy reference charts. I'm looking forward to having the book in my hand soon!

    Oh I'm pretty sure that Michael won't lose any sleep over Ethan's book. Does it come with a DVD with Ethan doing another anti-high-end rant too?

    Guess they'll be at least five copies sold. Don't go spending that royalty check just yet.

    Ethan seats at the opposite extreme from your vantage point..He has however backed his positions, often with solid science or pointed to solid research which is to most people more substantial than "I heard it".... The more appropriate response would be to get Ethan Book. Debunk it if you can. prove him wrong in a courteous and rational fashion, in Other words with solid arguments. It would elevate the debate and solidify your position and your contributions more so than veiled ad Hominem and innuendos jabs ... I am close to certain you can get a reviewer copy at no or little cost.

    I have no idea! I was into music long before I got into computers (I started at a very early age), and the book was a result of a couple of happy coincidences. Go figure!

    Yes, and that proves I did learn something from our debate. Related, in a (pro audio) forum that has banned me off and on several times, I suggested just this morning a one-on-one as you and I did, and I mentioned that debate and this forum by name.

    BTW, congrats Ethan. Must feel good to have one's name on Amazon. I just went through first pages. I thought the writing was clear and easy to follow.
    Thanks very much Amir, and everyone else too.
