The emails in this volume chronicle and document some of the story presented in the memoir. There are perhaps one hundred or so more, which may be added in later editions or a separate volume. The earlier emails demonstrate a far weaker, far less studied experienced relationship to the topics discussed in the book. Those in this volume are a good example of the later emails.
There is also a second project by the author with a similar set of email chronicles. This is TaxTheRichDotName email series and reflects the author’s involvement in recent political efforts to redress the current distribution of wealth in the country.
For more on either of the Email Chronicles and on both projects, the reader is referred to http://www.blamingjaphyrider.com and http://www.taxtherich.name.
