      So Ive gotten a few notes from people about Page 5 where I say that planets are "relatively rare." You guys couldn't be more correct! It seems like recent research is showing that planets are in fact quite common, so I think I'll be changing the line to "Not all stars have planets, some are lonely and bare." I'm sure that even if improved tech & research leads us to learn that almost all stars have planets, there are sure to be a few that don't. Thanks for the input!

      I love it and I know my grandkids will, too. Just a question on page 5: astronomy is not in my field of expertise but I question that stars with planets are "relatively rare." This quote from Smithsonian Science website may suggest otherwise: "New research by astronomers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and the National Optical Astronomy Observatory confirms that planet formation is a natural by-product of star formation, even around stars much heftier than our Sun. And planets that form around those hefty stars seem to come together very quickly." --Gary

      Hi Jamie,
      I have just read the .pdf of Bok2 "It's Alive". CONGRATULATIONS!!! Your work is exceptional. Making the work freely available in .pdf form is a true community gesture for which you should be truly proud. I am honoured to have been one of your sponsors. I can't wait for the next addition.

      I seem to remember an option to get some of the books early ... What do I need to do to make that happen? I bought the set for my nephew and his dad (my brother-who is a calculus nut).
      Thanks!!

      Looking forward to it; my family in Wisconsin is asking for it, too. I have MANY nieces/nephews and greats who would be ideal readers.

      Thank you, I've been looking for some good science poetry for my children. Can't wait to get my copies.

      It looks like JD underestimated his fan base. Which can't really be a bad problem to have, I guess.

      I'm glad there was one dollar left for me so I could close it out!

      Best of luck, James!
