It's finally here. Hopefully on the shelves of a bookstore near you. My big plans include a nice dinner in Manhattan with my family, and some book-related errands during the day, and, you know, if I happen to pass some bookstores while I'm out, well, what would be the harm in going in for a second and checking to see if it's there? Right? Right???? Plus, I've drafted a mass e-mail I'll be sending to everyone whose e-mail address I have, sometime in the morning. Apologies for that, really. But I have to. If there's one mass e-mail I'm allowed to send, this has to be it, right?
You've been reading my blog for a while, or maybe you haven't. Either way, I appreciate it, and you're obviously a huge part of this chain of events that's gotten me to this point. It's pretty exciting, and even if no one buys the book, it's still pretty exciting. If all you want to do is keep reading the free stuff, and you don't want to spend 15 bucks on the book, I understand, and I still like you. Obviously I'd love everyone who reads this to buy the book, and buy one for everyone they know. And post a positive review on Amazon. And tell all of your friends. But even if you don't buy it, I'd still love for you to tell your friends. Or even post a positive review on Amazon. :) No one will know you didn't read it. No, I'm kidding. I don't want to encourage Amazon review fraud. That would be almost as bad as going to class without doing the reading. Or taking the final exam even if you never bought the casebook. So don't do that.
First week sales help. If you buy my book, I will buy yours. Shoot me an e-mail and hold me to that promise, whether today or thirty years from now.
