I have both her previous books and they are a gold mine of info. I refer frequently to
the AH Kit, which comes with slides, when I teach AH. The lesson plans are really good,
not busy work. She's also a great presenter at the NAEA conventions if you ever have a
chance to attend one. When I met her by chance at breakfast in Houston a couple years
ago, I was falling all over myself, like I'd just met Elvis or something. She invited
me to sit with her; I felt so honored. The Book of Lists sounds interesting. I
purchase her books out of my own pocket and write it off on my taxes.
