Realzen,

Thanks for your magnificent post!

On your first and most simple point, I hasten to reassure you that the typo on pp 242-43 has been corrected for subsequent printings. Our publishers are optimistic about our sales and so print in large quantities which often leads to typos persisting longer than we would like.

On your second point, I would like to thank your for your thorough analysis and for your constructive solution.

We are in the middle of revising and updating our first two books: You Have More Than You Think and The Motley Fool Investment Guide. After we complete the edits to those, we plan to move on to the Workbook and Rule Breakers, Rule Makers. Your insights offered here about the point system will be incorporated into our editorial discussions about what to improve and how to improve it.

Three cheers for rigorous analysis and fully engaged minds!

Foolishly,

Gabrielle
