Turning lemons into lemonade

by | Mar 28, 2012

We just discovered that we had a printing error with the second edition of my Handbook of Investment Performance: we left off part of the bibliography.

Now, you might think this isn’t a big deal, but for a firm that prides itself on the highest quality in all we do, we are quite upset, disappointed, and embarrassed. And so, if you purchased a copy, even though you may not have noticed the error yourself, just send us a note and we’ll send you a corrected one (yes, we’ve undergone the expense of another printing to correct the mistake). You can keep the copy you have; we’ll send you a replacement. All you need to do is ask for it.

As you might imagine, we’re now stuck with a lot of books with this mistake. And so, we offer you this opportunity: you can get a copy of the version with the missing bibliography pages for a ridiculously low $20 (plus the cost of shipping), or you can purchase the now corrected and complete edition for $75. Note that the version with the missing pages is complete, except for the bibliography pages, which we’ll include separately, so you’ll still know what these items are. And so, our mistake can be an opportunity for you to obtain a copy of my book at a HUGE discount. Just let us know if you’d like a copy (or more; perhaps you’ll want to get copies for your entire team at this price), and we’ll send it (them) out!
