  1. Nicely done! I only just started reading Mindscan.

  2. Congratulation Rob! That award cabinet of yours will need an extension soon.

  3. Rob,
    A nice pick me up after the cancellation of FlashForward.

    ps: I bought Watch when it first came out, but haven’t been able to set aside enough time to read it. It keeps staring at me on the front hall table.

  4. Mindscan is next on my list as well. Congrats on the award!

  5. Congrats on the awared Rob!

  6. Congratulations Rob!!! I loved the book. I’m reading Mindscan now and enjoying all the twists immensely :).
    Stay inspired!

  7. Mr. Sawyer,

    I deeply appreciated this book. What an easy and enjoyable read! I do not engage in hyperbole when I say that it has given me a greater appreciation for the alien nature of the perspective held by other people. I already note the greater degree of latitude I am willing to give them.

    Thank you.
