    1. Should we consider a 1,000-copy hardcover edition to do simultaneous with the paperback and e-book editions?
    2. Note that the title and subtitle will change. We probably need to add the word "1967" into the title and remove references to "Fifty Years Ago Today" so as not to date the book.
