    As a Member of the first (guinea pig) Eng Phys class, as one who remembers David from his arrival at RMC and as one who was project director for a David Baird development project (sponsored by DND) on brushless DC motors, I would very much like to reserve a book.

    Congratulations to David Baird for having written the book, and I would like to purchase a copy. If David is prepared to sign it in spite of my history of apostasy, I would be honoured.

    As an Eng Phys survivor (class of ’76), I would very much like to purchase a copy of this book. And because said survival was aided and abetted by David’s guidance and friendship, a signed copy would be a treasure!

    As one of the Class of ’81 Eng Phys grads I’d certainly be interested in such a book. As an Ottawa resident I’ll even look into making the launch on the 17’th.

    I cannot attend the launch, but I also would like to buy a copy, and would be very happy if it could be signed by Dr. Baird! (Eng Phys, Class of ’93) Thank you!
