I recently read your new book, “Watch That Rat Hole” and want to tell you that it is a wonderful read. I have always enjoyed interacting with you, and believe that your sense of personal ethics and high standards are worth emulating and spreading. We see so much grandstanding and self-promotion these days, and it is wonderful to know someone who remains self-effacing and humble despite so much accomplishment. You are a true inspiration.
I made your book required reading for a new course that begins this coming Monday [March 21] at Johns Hopkins, called REIT Analysis & Structuring. This is course is part of the MSRE program, and I will be teaching three sections of students (one in Baltimore, one in DC, and one via internet) – forty-three students have registered!
