Couple of new updates. First, the group discussion will begin officially on January 14th, 2005. By that time everyone should be settled down from the holidays and be ready to begin.
Second, if you intend to participate in the group discussion, you are urged to purchase and use the published book
. The version available online is not the final edit, and Gregg Rosenberg has confirmed to me that "there are lots of changes in the final version that matter to the meaning." Therefore, reading from the online version could hinder your own understanding of the material and cause undue misunderstandings in the context of the group discussion.
By the way, from now on I'll be keeping a running list of updates at the bottom of the original post in this thread for easy reference.
