I read with interest your review in Nature for 3 August. I have long championed amateur-professional interaction, so I am particular interested in "the example of the amateur astronomers who observed Supernova 1987A." I am having my library order a copy of the book, but that will take some time, so perhaps you could brief me as to the content of that comment or fax me the page (1 413 597 3200). I am not aware offhand of substantial amateur-astronomer contribution to the discovery or monitoring of SN 1987A so I wonder what the example is.
