I appreciate your honesty and patience at the same time here.

I am right in the middle of preparing for and then grading final exams, so 
give me some time, and I'll pull out relevant sections from the e-mail that 
describes the E-book I'm trying to work with.

Again, I'm sorry for not being more specific, but I'll get more details to 
you and everyone ASAP if that is what is needed.

Tom from Michigan
