  • A friend asked me what I wanted for my birthday and I said your new book. I had contacted you previously about the very light print on the pages of your previous book and you advised me that it wasn’t just me, that the publisher had made a mistake in printing your book. So I was quite confident that your new book would be regular print. I was so disappointed to learn that this is not true and the that the print is light (althought not quite as light as previous book) and not easy to read.
