I got my copy a few days ago, and hope to use it in my new teaching job this fall. I mentioned junk DNA in my sample lecture.

I've donated the book to the library of our department and will mention it in my lecture on scinetific integrity. I hope it will have an impact of at least some students.
Keep up the good work.
