It is simple. Just write in the comments section some reason why you should get my book for free. I will mail free copies to the first fifteen commenters to meet the following conditions:
1. Your comment must offer a reason why you should get the book for free.
2. You must explain that reason in a moderately-sized paragraph or more. "Just cuz" does not qualify.
3. Your paragraph must address why you should get the book and why you should get it for free.
4. You must believe your reason.
Then email me with your mailing address (to my normal gmu email, and so I know you are you please put your real name on your posted reason as well) and I will send you a copy, through Amazon, at my own expense. You know, at first I thought I would get the publisher to put up copies for this but then I realized no, I ought to be paying for the books myself. I’m not even using an author’s discount.
I wish I were a wealthier man, but I am offering only fifteen copies right now. Any future copies will be offered abroad, not in the U.S.
I am very interested in the idea of what it means to have a reason.
Sadly, no matter how good your reason, I cannot send more than one copy to you.
Addendum: This offer is restricted to the United States and Canada. I am worried that the first copies to go out otherwise would end up in the hands of a single Nigerian spammer, plus Amazon does not ship worldwide. Nonetheless I hope to make a similar offer to the broader world in the future, with appropriate safeguards.
Second addendum: The first fifteen slots have now been awarded…
