    Tim I finished reading Facing Down Fear yesterday. Without a doubt the author has led a very interesting and adventurous life. Thanks again for your importation and distribution efforts.

    Definitely not a "how to" book. Think vignettes.

    Some of the vignettes are even written by others...namely John's good friend Lynn Everts and also John's older brother.

    It is a very good read. It is packed with short stories and well written.

    Tim: I know you are bringing John Sharp to the AH dinner, but for others not attending the dinner I thought I'd post this info.

    FYI - Unless they sell before, I will have a couple of the limited, signed and numbered hardcover books and a very few (maybe 5) soft cover books with me at the dinner, that will be available to purchase (in addition to the books that some of you have already spoken for and plan to pick up at dinner).

    We will also be giving away a soft cover to a lucky attendee. So be nice to me and you might win! :)
