Thanks, Jonathan, for forwarding this to the list.

Of course, the success of the book is important to me for purely personal 

But the main reason I wrote the book is that I believe it's vital that 
open science become a mainstream issue in our society. Writing a book 
aimed at a general audience seemed to be the best way I could help achieve 
that goal.  I believed this strongly enough that I gave up my tenured job 
to write the book.

I know open science is a goal close to the heart of the people on this
list, and so I'm hoping you can help get the word out about the book
to colleagues, students, and the public.

I've blogged more about the book (with links) here:


Best wishes,
