"People have been urging me to put these articles into book form," Keith says.
"I have taken some of the ones that folks seemed to enjoy most or that they tell me they
learned the most from and added a bunch more that I have been working on for a while.
That's the book! It is simply one man's love sonnet to the world's greatest hobby."
