Dan, I just wanted to say thanks for this wonderful and detailed series. I look forward to reading this book together with my wife after things settle down here a bit, and I plan to walk through each of your chapter reviews again at that time. Even though I couldn't follow along during the series, I read the posts and it has encouraged me to pick up YMOYL soon.

Matt, thanks. Really appreciate the positive vibes. Keep me posted on your progress!

Thanks for this series. I've been reading, even though I'm many years late to the party! :)
Maybe my library has YMOYL available.
