    1. Thank you, Catherine, for letting me borrow this from you. It was so good that I even went so far as to order a copy from the internets because I was just re-reading over and over again certain passages, and leaning onto it as I was staring into some of the diagrams. My copy just arrived today, before yours got too scruffy as a result of my over-enthusiasm.
