Our friend Paul Darlington M0XPD is a member in good standing of the International Brotherhood of Electronic Wizards. His AD9850 Arduino shield propelled me into the world of I and Q. His "Shack Nasties" blog is a valuable resource for all of us. And now he has written a book. Paul was kind enough to let me read it before it was published -- I enjoyed it very much. It is the story of a very personal journey. At one level it is about Paul's trip to the Dayton Hamvention. But the trip goes much further than Dayton, both geographically and personally. I especially enjoyed Paul's observations on the United States -- our British cousins often see things we ourselves overlook. I'm really pleased that George Dobbs wrote the foreword -- he is the ideal person to do this for Paul's very philosophical book.
We give "Getting There" our highest review: the coveted FIVE SOLDERING IRONS. And we are nominating Paul for a Brass Figlagee with Bronze Oak Leaf Palm.
