Welcome! The author himself!
I just checked out the preview of your linear algebra book. Looks superb. Even has quantum mechanics applications. Definitely on my purchase list. Do you now when the print version is coming?

My copyeditor is doing her final pass to correct any remaining typos. I'm expecting to ship it sometime this Feb. Finally! It's been epic—almost a three years of editing and polishing... (My friend was joking with me saying I should have called the books "Almost no bullshit guide ..." this way I can release them much sooner ;)
