I think it's wonderful, and am already addicted to it - you're much more on Ken's wavelength than Michael Coveney, who clearly missed out on a lot (e.g. the 'amazing' James Clark). I love the personal anecdotes. The pictures and appendices alone make the book essential. Great work! Peter Chrisp --in an email to author

Still reading Jeff Merrifield's book - it's discursive and honest and rivetting! Thanks for putting in the time Jeff. Ken needed others to support his dreams and schemes, you are a Boswell to his Johnson (sounds a bit rude!) Dare to dream and sceme and SEEK indeed. Claudia Boulton --Facebook posting
