I was looking for an Australian supplier to buy a copy, and felt compelled to comment when I got to this site. I'm 75 years of age, reasonably tech savvy, and found this book to be a goldmine for people my age. It's easy to understand and a very clear document. Michael Miller is a very empathetic writer. David Callachor. Now to find it.
