Any update or information about Jim/James Price?

I searched the author's name and the search term "Arabic". There appears to be a man of
that name who comments (as recently as May 11, 2010) on Israel-Palestine issues on a few
news sites. I'm not sure whether this is our author or not, but it seems to me as if
someone with an understanding of Arabic may be interested in the topic.

In one of his posts, our commentator indicates he is from Herndon, Virginia. Google
provides a CV for such a person with corresponding contact information. However, the CV
is for an oceanographer and makes no reference to Arabic.

Don't dig any deeper or you might unmask undercover CIA agent.

Sounds like an awsome book. I'd be willing to pay hundreds of dollars for a copy.

Seriously. I always come back to this thread, hoping for more information or contact information. I guess it's *possible* to be an Arabic teacher AND an oceanographer, but it seems a bit odd to not list advanced language skills on a CV if you have them.

EDIT: After a quick search, I found a LinkedIn profile under the name Jim Price, who works for the UAE military as an advisor. This sounds a bit more likely than an oceanographer, I'd think. . .

I'd like to see the book out of curiosity, too, but I think that the importance of Arabic grammar books is generally overrated. Sure, Arabic Grammar isn't exactly easy, but the Iḍāfa, which is often portrayed as being very complicated, is actually one of the easier concepts of Arabic. Besides, Grammar only gets you so far. I've always found the many synonyms for frequently used verbs more challenging.
