Hi Don--

Erlbaum is trying very hard. And some reviews have appeared on Amazon, so
some memory of ARL can survive,...... biased, incomplete, and etc as it is.
By all means
add to the reviews if the spirit moves you.

I got from probability learning among IU undergrads to culture and
development by
stumbling backwards through life and being very very lucky. There is a very
odd and
complicated set of retrospectively plausible stories to be told about it.
Ask my
wife about it. She was there and probably understands.
