When I first released Episode 298, I made an offer to give free e-books to people who bought a paper book wrote a review. Unfortunately, I think that’s not consistent with Amazon’s policy on reviews, and I don’t want to run afoul of them. So, please don’t write a review for this purpose, and if you already did, I’m sorry to say, please delete it. Sorry for the confusion!
