Prominent NZ Book blogger Graham Beattie reported on the launch last week of Jan Cronin's book The Frame Function. Sounds like a good crowd and Bookman Beattie has reproduced the text of the launch speech given by Peter Simpson. Lots of mountain climbing metaphors! My copy of the book arrived today and what a fascinating cover. Looks like a meaty and thought-provoking text. An absolute must read for Frame scholars and postgrad students.
