  1. I just my soft cover in the mail today, and the content inside is all from the 2023 edition. My mother ordered the kindle version and it was the 2024. My copy has the same cover as hers but the inside is all last years.

    • Hi Chris. I’m so sorry. It seems there was a glitch with the first run of the soft copy – it’s fixed now – I think Hard copy and Kindle were fine. If you email me at I’ll get you a revised copy sent free of charge.

      Who knows? Maybe this version will be worth millions in years to come!
