Scott's book arrived today. I didn't know that Jim Schulman is a celebrity. Congratulation.

I'm sure you would cut down on the riling if you'd quit telling those pesky kids to get off your lawn :D

OBResponse: Schomer's book reads as his way to espresso Valhalla. It's rigid, concise and dogmatic. It's also kept him in a very healthy business, so it seems. It reads as much more subjective and less applicable to home espresso than Rao's book.

I have now Rao, Schomer, and Illy on my shelve. It appear that Mr. Schomer has not much use for Illy's science.
