I'm sure glad to see this

I'm sure glad to see this review. It's just heartbreaking that there has been so little coverage of this book. What's it going to take, one of us setting ourselves on fire? People need to hear about this book!!!

Thanks, Gamer's Intuition! Hopefully some other sites will follow your example and post some reviews about our book.

I'm sure a self-published

I'm sure a self-published pamphlet from an unknown writer with incoherent sentences would receive more coverage, but then that's always been our Achilles heel with everything we've done for whatever reason...

LOL. That's the funniest thing I've read all week.

Maybe it's just me. Seem jinxed. My name was even "accidentally" left off the roll at my high school graduation. I could give you dozens of examples of stuff like that. I'm like the invisible man--except when I put my hand in the cookie jar, of course. :)

What's going on???

First of all, the "Gamer's Intuition" review was excellent. I wish I had written it! Hopefully, this will be a sign of things to come.

Second of all, I am surprised at the lack of reviews for VG on Amazon. I wrote my review a couple of months ago, but it still stands at five reviews! What's going on? Certainly more than five people can come forward and comment. VG deserves better than that. I regret my long review with some criticisms now. Surely more than five people bought the book!

P.S. I did register on Slashdot just to click on the "plus" sign on the VG review.
