Guess the Table of Contents!
So you know twenty of the entries in the book - but can you guess the other eighty? You have a month to make your best guesses for the other eighty, before they're revealed. Whoever gets the most correct the fastest gets a free signed copy of the book.
You have to guess all eighty - or as many as you can - at once.
One guess per question, and only one email per entrant - any followup emails with adjustments to your first guesses won't get counted.
If nobody gets all the questions correct, whoever got the most correct the fastest wins.
