". . . So it is with some surprise that I can say I enjoyed 'writing' Safer Code. It was not an easy task, as the two previous iterations are so ar superior. And yet, I was blessed with strong material: some of Schulz's fantastic language, along with Foer's transformative editing & writing. I thank both these extraordinary authors!"
