From Tim Chow via FOM:

I have just completed a first draft of an expository paper on forcing.

This paper grew out of a sci.math.research article that I posted back in 2001 entitled "Forcing for dummies":

I made a major change, hopefully for the better, by approaching the subject via Boolean-valued models, which I believe are pedagogically very helpful. Constructive comments on the exposition are welcome.
