      I'm glad that finally, after decades of trying to live by that mantra, you have packed it in.

    "Experiment. Fail. Learn. Repeat." This cycle of endless misery doesn't even include "succeed." Entrepreneurs are taught it's okay to repetitively fail. This is totally wrong -- if you screw something up once, you better not screw up the same thing again.

    Four attempts to download your book and twice I have mentioned it. I'll just assume that you thunk it's not actually worth putting it in people's hands.

    Meditate Daily, stare aimlessly at your dream board daily, (twice daily), dream that the Mansion and Ferrari 488 GTB, (my apologies, just watched Gone in 60 Seconds) is yours, and the hot wife, with a pole dancing fetish, and the two white huskies, that you walk daily along the beach in your underwear, (don't ask me why) is achievable.

    But maybe juggling gnomes, or a Russian Hacker turned good would make the press three buttons to create untold millions software for a reasonable $25 would help?

    Seen years of this crap to know that it is crap, as well as people in mansions with a few Porsches outside, giving you a guided tour and showing live video of their supposed Clickbank wealth, (they don't show you the second mortgage, distributed to their nearest relatives and business associates in a buying their product spree.

        Well it is a "perfect paperback".

        Of course, the only thing perfect written on paper related to Claude would be his obituary.

          Dearest Darling Kurt;

          Ha....HAHAHAHA..Ha!

          I no longer sell that book on Amazon in paperback form.

          For reasons which escape me, books that are out of print, and no longer available on Amazon attract book dealers that list unbelievably high prices.

          I assume they actually occasionally sell a book.

          For you? Someone who is obviously stalking me? Half price.

          Your pen pal, Claude

    Now, now, boys we all know that a copy is available at Walmart, under all of the heavily discounted, Donut making machines and Whitacre, Wonka Super large chocolate bars.

    Just clean off the stains on the front cover, and tear off the warning tape and it is as good as new.
