Hooray! Better Than Before is an instant bestseller. In fact, it’s an international bestseller!

Of course, I had to take a photo when I actually saw it in a bookstore for the first time.

It appears on the…

Writing is a lot of work; it’s my favorite kind of work, and I would write even if no one read what I wrote, but it’s extraordinarily gratifying to see the book strike a chord with so many people. Thank you, readers, as always, for your support and enthusiasm. It’s thrilling to have the book out in the world at last.
