Thanks Christian!!

I want to also point out that both books are available at substantial discount 
for Kadenze Members.  The discounts easily pay for a couple of months of 
membership.  And membership lets you engage in the courses more deeply (do the 
assignments and final projects).

See you all in class!!!
