I have been well aware of your work since the late 1980s. Having read several of your dissertations, I also happen to share some your conclusions and opinions albeit not all. Like Teitler, Im much of the opinion that one will reach different conclusions if one reasons from an ML-KNIL or RNN perspective.
Equally, I can see the validity of formers perspective while, as a retired Naval Officer, I just happen to share the latter.
In the end it matters not, a naval battle had to be fought, regardless of the outcome.
Once your book hits the stores I will order a copy.
