My pal Tom, who spent a couple years in Uzbekistan with the Peace Corps, started writing a book about his experiences there soon after he came back to the US. He really put an amazing effort into crafting a well-written narrative, and spent an insane amount of time editing it over and over again, even hiring outside editors for advice. All of his efforts have paid off, and now I'm happy to announce that Tom's first book, Taxi to Tashkent, has been published and is available on Amazon.com! It's so exciting to be able to actually see the book up for sale, along with the cool cover that Chris designed for Tom. If you search around on the web, you can find it available from other booksellers and even available electronically. I'll be getting a copy from Tom soon, and I'm looking forward to reading it! This is a really cool accomplishment, and I always enjoy bragging about my pals!
