I have not seen the finished product, but I reviewed Stein's manuscript
for MAA prior to publication and was VERY impressed. The level of
exposition made it quite accessible to people with varied mathematical
backgrounds. I am anxiously awaiting the text.

I found the text quite readable and enjoyable. Stein's reputation for
well-written mathematics will continue.
