    i hope someone at the book publisher caught the typo in the last paragraph of the excerpt:

    As a former BW correspondent, I am really looking forward to reading the book! But I also hope a proofreader caught another typo, in the second graf of the excerpt:

    Presumably it should say “Within two years”
