I received my copy in the post yesterday. Not read it yet, as my daughter is buying it for me as a Christmas present, but I did listen to the cd to check it was alright. It consists of an extended interview with Eric, and for my mind is worth the price of the book on its own, as it gives an invaluable insight into his thinking and motivation.
