I just finished your book and wanted to drop you a line to tell you how brilliant it is. You have done for the Sound what Marc Reisner did for the west with Cadillac Desert. Your review of the Sound's history was fascinating, and your documentation of it's "recent" struggles painted a clear and unvarnished picture. While I lived on the west coast for much of the time from 87'-07' I grew up playing in the Sound, working in the Sound as a launch driver, and enjoying all the Sound has to offer. Thank you for investing the time to document this in the way you have. I hope I get the chance to bump into you one day, but till then, I hope a heart-felt thank you will suffice.
It made my day.
