Just received the new 2009 edition of Rod Laver's memoir from 1971. I will send some more comments after reading the whole book, especially the new added parts. Maybe some of the poster already have read it, and can make some comments. For now i noticed, that the book added 196 titles won by Laver in the appendix list. Especially to Carlo, Jeffrey and Andrew Tas: At last our groundwork at wikipedia seems to go into the written books and records. That's very gratefying to see. I always found the title very good, because it shows the eternal development process, which characterizised Laver's career and life, even the recovery period after his stroke.
