Daniel Naroditsky's Book

I was at Daniel N's lecture and signing yesterday (I played in the A.J. Fink), and he comported himself well. I dropped a few questions on him about current elite players, namely Max Vachier-Legrave and Luke McShane. Bought a book and asked him what game collections HE found most instructive for his playing and writing. Daniel said Petrosian and Karpov. No surprise there.

I have a question for you: Do you happen to know Tom O'Donnell's email address or tel #? I'm trying to get a hold of him for a few lessons. Thanks in advance. kh
