Today I got a letter letting me know there'd been a television show review of Rocket Science. It was on the CBS affiliate WTVF in Nashville Tennesee, "Open Line" TV show on Dec 6th. They promoted and reviewed the book. Saralee Terry Woods (known as BookWoman/BookMan) said: "We appear regularly on the CBS TV station WTVF on the "Talk of the Town" program, their mid-day show. It is the top ranked daytime television program in Middle Tennessee, Southern Kentucky and Northern Alabama, covering not only the public, but numerous bookstores and the headquarters of Ingram Books..."
