Re: [IP] Re: Academics vs experience



The book is on my Hanukkah list! I was just wondering since my educator
gives me all kinds of books to read and the fact that she's probably raking
in the money from treating patients like me with good insurance while at the
same time representing 3 different insulin pump companies,...maybe she will
give me one as a "present." I don't dare to ask.

Thanks for the encouragement!
