This is one of the many cases where I had never met or spoken to the contributor. I had heard, many times, of his name and fine book taste. Prairie Lights is the store everyone talks about in Iowa(and we'll hear from them in a few days) but they ain't the only
game in town. Big thanks go to Steve Horwitz--our Abraham&Associates rep--for always pestering me about getting in touch with Matt.
