I ordered a copy of your book yesterday from Amazon---even after I discovered that there might have been a link between you (the author or publisher).

It's your call, but IMHO it'd be helpful for readers of your testimonial to know that it came from the book's stakeholder.

Your original post came across to me as a customer testimonial.

Am looking forward to reading your work. Thank you for your efforts in clarifying the context behind you and the book. Cheers

My copy arrived today by mail.

It was so much thinner than I had anticipated---first impression for me was it was almost like a booklet or pamphlet in thickness.

When I read it, I discovered that it wasn't about gnarly off-road adventure---instead it was about a wife and husband's longstanding affinity for their Jeep vehicles (e.g. CJs, JK, etc.) enduring many years (dating in college through marriage).

For me, I equate Jeep Wrangler "ultimate fun and freedom" to gnarly off-roading. The author (D.D. Douglas) and her husband shared their personal stories and anecdotes about the Jeeps in their lives over many years and people that they have met along the way.

Would I recommend this book? Yes for it's warm-hearted personal testimonial by longstanding Jeep aficionados---knowledgeable and enthusiastic about their vehicles.

Caution though, it's a quick read, written well, but nonetheless a quick read.
