Actually, I think this is pretty good, and don't really have any major
changes to suggest. I think it accomplishes what IMO a foreword is
supposed to accomplished, which is to explain why the book was written
and why you should read it. My only small comment is to have the
academics among us make sure that any academic jargon is used
correctly, and that the tone is appropriate for something that
academics will be evaluating as a formal textbook.
