Geez, is there any book that Campbell doesn't win?

Congrats to all the winners! There were some really interesting questions posted for this book, and some fascinating responses by Pierre-Yves Saumont (just read through the monad one a little while ago). I'll need to keep my eye on this MEAP.

Good grief! Thank you! But I shall have to turn down the prize on what people will think is a feeble excuse: otherwise I shall have two copies of the book.

Only if I haven't got it already.

I like winning and passing the book on to whoever is the runner‑up.

I even once won a book when I hadn't even posted on the forum.

I have given all my ill‑gotten gains from book promos this year to other people.

I know that statement was meant as a joke, but if you were serious (and it happens again), please report it. It would be a bug if the automated system picked a winner that did not qualify.
