Hello Dr. Schmidt,


You are an inspiration to me.  I have read your book Disciplined Minds.


Recently I purchased seven paperback copies of your book for distribution among my friends.  Whenever someone comes to me for advice about doing a PhD, I always tell them to read your book first and then decide for themselves.


I am in the process of being denied tenure.  In the process I am getting a ringside view of the hypocrisy that rules the academic world.  I have started reading your book the second time for solace and comfort.


With best wishes for a happy holiday season and a happy new year,
