Writing a forward to a book isn't that unusual or noteworthy (although I'm
still awaiting an invitation to join that club), but it *is* a bit unusual to
see that Jay has done so for a book on Blended Learning, since he has been a
pretty vocal critic of the term/concept over the years.
I found myself nodding my head in agreement on several of his "common sense" observations and stances (especially the one on 'This Old House' and on reading a bad book once, so giving up on reading entirely).
