Tentative Outline- 11/11/08

Ok all, here is the latest version of the book outline. I have compiled all of the blogs in Section 1, and they make up about 200 pages. I think the topics need some polishing in section 2, so send me your thoughts. Some of you are sending me edited blogs- great, by the end of the week would be stellar.

Everyone, please let me know by Friday 11/14 if I missed something you asked for, still need to subsititute/add/change any blogs, and Please let me know if you’d prefer that your blogs be set forth different order.
