If you’re here because you finished the book – thanks! We hope you enjoyed it.
If you’re here because you’re thinking about buying the book – welcome. We’re hoping that some of this extra content can be a bit useful for you. But, honestly some of it will make a bunch more sense once you’ve got the context of the book.
