I just read the 9 Kb file from Peter Kent that basically markets his book.
He is selling it at bookstores & I wish him success. From the 9 Kb
message, here's what interests me:

1. reasons for _not_ getting into freelancing
2. the realities of the current job market -- contract or captive!
3. how to get started working with technical-service agencies

The rest of the 9 Kb file dealt with:

1. Peter's response to a critic
2. free marketing of the book by the author

I fully appreciate the right of anyone on this list to respond to open
criticism ONCE (as I recently did ONCE with the Maloney incident). I do
NOT appreciate 9 kB files on your personal lives or what you sell. Nor do
I expect you to care about my business affairs in this arena unless such
are related to current topic and used to communicate

This note in no way reflects negatively on Peter's book. I hold tremendous
professional respect for the man, and wish him good health and continued
success in the future.
