Hello, Friends!

Due to the high demand for Penguin titles from the academic community,
I have recently joined Penguin as the new Midwest College Field Sales Representative.
In my former position I helped booksellers battle the effects of monsoons in India, coups
in Thailand, and currency crashes in South America. Now, I will be traveling to the far
reaches of the Midwest to share with academics my knowledge of the interesting and illuminating
books that Penguin publishes each year. Please never hesitate to contact me regarding any questions
or concerns you may have.
