I met Conor Cunningham at the Rome conference I attended in 2008. He was basically in charge of the conference. As one of (maybe only) the non-academics presenting a paper among a room full of Ph.D.’s, most who were published professors, it was very intimidating and I felt like a fish out of water. The person who made me feel the most comfortable was Conor. A great guy.
He has written a new book that will come out this fall. It looks like a great read. The list of reviews and what they are saying about the book is quite impressive.
