Here’s some fun notes I’m getting from people who are ordering the Limited Edition:
Dear Craig! I hope I’m not too late. Please put in an extra inscription, funny and salacious, addressed to my father, Keith Davies. This is his Christmas gift!
Your Beth Davies
Hey, Craig! Can’t wait! Thanks for the offer!!
Craig, will you inscribe it to me? Say something personal, so I can show it to my kids proudly when they’re old enough. Many thanks!

Hey, Craig! Here’s payment for the limited edition. If you’re in the mood for an inscription, one my infant son “To Rahil” wishing him a happy 18th birthday in 2024 might be nice.
Yo, Craig – Please put my name on the list to receive a copy of your Deluxe Limited Edition book – inscription: “I bequeath all of my earthly posessions to Russell Roberts” or, if you prefer, something like “To Russ”. Thanks!
