Hi Preston and List,

I think you have a very good point, early market acceptance and recognition
of the product is a key part in success of that product.In our Rapid Mold
Making, we call it the "big toe approach". You test the market waters with
your big toe first. Focus groups, sales reps and purchasing agents can be
introduced to the product, so that concurrent marketing as well as
concurrent engineering can be applied. In some cases even write the order
before you start cutting steel for the hard tool.

I am interested in obtaining a copy of your book, please put me on the
October list.
