1 current arrangement we have with Packt for WPD is to get 8 names of
people from throughout the world (based on a 'survey prize draw' was the
idea) and send these names to Packt and they will send out a book to
each of them. What I could ask my contact at Packt is whether we can
instead change the 'prize' to be 1 of these books? What do you think?
