Hello anonymous commenter! Thank you for the analysis of my Kickstarter campaign. Despite the overwhelming amount of support I've received, you seem to be one of my only naysayers in the past 6 years. I would love to send you a free copy of my book so you can read it. I would even enjoy discussing it with you over the phone. Please privately email me your physical address and phone number!
