    Update on the book

    I have one edited copy back and 3 "reviews". So far, my fellow engineers seem to think it is good enough to publish.

    I have a lot of corrections to make but progress is going on. One section was left out completely and one section was short changed.

    In addition, I got a Kodak style generation 1 super mixer today. If things go well, I will add a paragraph on it as well. There is a section on mixing, so this will fit in well.

    I will have the book and the DVDs at the GEH workshop next week. I will also have some new material with me for the members of the class.

    Thanks Kirk.

    For the information of all, the device is called a PEPA, which stands for Planar Emulsion Precipitation Apparatus. In the plant it morphed into the Multi Bank Spreader. It is basically a shrouded turbine or a device not unlike a jet engine.

    There were at least 2 or 3 variations as it evolved from the initial concept by Herb Wilgus.

    Kirk;

    I will as soon as I have time. I am getting ready for the GEH workshop on the 17th and that is taking most of my time this week. I am also getting ready for the "editorial review board" on the book. I already have one book back with comments! So, you will have to wait a bit.

    Hello PE, I was just wondering where I can purchase your book when it comes out?

    It is my birthday soon, and your book will be the perfect birthday present. To be honest, I am very excited.

    I got the book(s) back from 5 fellow engineers 2 weeks ago with their comments. They did an excellent job with the edit. I am correlating the changes and expanding 3 sections based on comments from them. As yet, IDK where to get it published. I may go the inexpensive route with B&W images and hand drawn graphs and charts or go the luxury route and opt for color and reworked art to get fine graphs and charts. The difference in price might be as much as $100 / copy. I have asked this question elsewhere, and the results are divided.

    The book was delayed for a year, as I explained earlier due to a serious family injury. That is now passed and I am moving forward.

    Money is not really a object with me, I'm mean, I don't put a price on knowledge, and those who want to learn off the people who have put the effort into educating people, should not care for the price. Whichever route you take, I know I am buying your book. I read the index, and all the things I want to know are there, so WELL DONE!

    It was also great to hear you got fellow engineers to review the book, and edit it.

    Please keep me informed about the progress of the publication.

    Thank you.

    Ron:

    This long-awaited major opus will sit on the shelf with Baker, Wall and the rest. Don't skimp.

    Let the cheap SOB's buy the paperback next year.
