Congratulations on your book! I hope I can read it someday!

Hello Edgar! I’m Marylin. I’m very excited for you because you are well known now! Congratulations!

Hello Edgar

I am the London taxi driver who took you on Saturday 4/11. Just wanted to let you know I have ordered your book and will let you know what I think. It is very interesting because I have just read the new Robert Harris book called The Fear Index which is a novel concerning high frequency trading. I must say, after reading about you on the internet, I apologize I did not know that I was carrying such a well-known person. Anyway, it was very interesting talking to you on our journey through London.
