    Sorry, I know this wasn't the question, but comma splices make me a bit nuts.

    Jack has given his opinion. What about you, Peter?

    (I agree what "How" is just fine, though.)
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
