It's GETTING PAST OK. I'll make you a deal. If you ask your librarian to
order it (and why not ask for VIRUS OF THE MIND too if they don't yet carry
it), I'll send you a FREE autographed copy of GETTING PAST OK. Just send me
your address and a note that you've asked your librarian (I trust you).
They almost always are happy to order such a book, but either way I'll send
you a free copy.

I've long since given up working on definitions.
