My copy has just arrived -- and it is obviously a must for our group. It was reviewed in Science (encl. in case you missed that.) I would appreciate notice of any other reviews you may encounter.
To follow (after I have had time for careful reading) -- my own accounts on S. Cohen's review, and on the book itself.
