April 17 is a very special day for me. This is the B-day of two very important people in my life: The young man who made me a proud uncle, was born in this date almost 28 years ago. Also, my sis-in-law from my wife’s side, was also born in April 17, in the year none-of-your-******* business!
Coincidentally, April 17 is the official “birthday” of the entity that made me a published (book) author; my book, The First Brain: The Neuroscience of Planarians (TFB).
In celebration, I have decided to give away a signed copy of TFB to one lucky winner!
In addition to doing this as a celebration, a second reason for the giveaway is to humbly contribute to the education of my community, near and far; this is part of my mission as an academic. My third reason is to try to spread the word about my work and gain more audience; you see, I want to write more popular science! In fact, there are several surprises coming soon!
How’s the above paragraph for full disclosure?
Here’s how this is going to happen:
**You have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to buy**
**I will choose the winner. My decision will be final and not subject to appeal.
**You have my promise that I will not choose a relative as the winner. It is only fair.
**I will send the signed book at my expense anywhere in the world except for places where I may be forbidden to send it by law.
How will I choose the winner:
**You must write a comment in this post saying something is the lines of “I am interested on reading TFB because…”. The deadline for doing so is April 16, 2015 at 11:59 pm US EST. I will read the comments and the one that I like the most, wins.
**I reserve the right, if I like two answers equally, to give away a second signed copy. I also reserve the right not to like any of the reasons…
**Once the winner(s) is (are) chosen, I will reply to the comment and ask the winner to send me a private email to email@example.com with a mailing address. I promise that I will keep it private. If I do not receive any answer within 2 days, I will choose another winner.
I would appreciate it if you:
1) Subscribe to my blog OR “Like” my Facebook page OR follow me on Twitter OR ideally, all of the above.
2) Allow me to post your comment and a picture of you with my book, in this blog; I will identify you only by first name and the initial of your last name (i.e., Vanessa P.) and your country/state of origin.
3) Spread the word about the Baldscientist’s Blog.
4) Once you read TFB, post an honest review (warts and all; I want to know what I can do better) at amazon.com.
None of the above is a requirement to win, but I’d be very happy if you’d do them…
OK… Let’s play… On your marks… Get set… GO!
