Thanks Jeanne and Palak and everyone,

I'm happy to be here. I'm looking forward to answering questions and discussing anything related to Design for the Mind, or any other topic for that matter. I'll check the Ranch frequently over the next few days. You can learn a little more about me here.

I read the sample chapter, and I found funny and interesting the example with Brainy and Dr. K.
How Dr. K. explain his design recommendation it's very professional and convincing.
Looking forward to read the book.

Regards,
Hada
