Ruth,

Your kickstarter email address appears to be different from your permies.com email address.  If you check your "other" email, I think you will find loads of emails from us sending you all kinds of goodies.

hi Paul

That's a real shame because its an ancient email and I haven't had the domain for four or five years. I should have checked I'm happy to buy the book again but please can you send me any of the extras I was due to my regular email address? Sorry I know you are busy!!

all the best

Ruth

Ruth,

Click on "my profile", select "email preferences" and then add the other email address to "Add secondary email".  Once done, click on "my stuff" at the top - you should have heaps of stuff!

Jeff,

I figured out that you are a kickstarter supporter.   Thanks for supporting our kicktarter!

If you pop over to the kickstarter support forum, you will probably find your answer.  Or, you can post there for help:  https://permies.com/f/370/bwb-kickstarter

I'm a little late in responding; I started reading and forgot.  Obviously, book received.  My name wasn't in the back of the book, and I did send in the reply, but boo-hoo-I'm-over-it, getting the book is enough.  Thank you for your hard work.  I am learning--and humbled--by each page.

Susan,

To get your name listed at the back of the book, you had to support the kickstarter at $100 or more to get:

Your Most Creative Name in the Book (80 character limit)

OK. cool.  I  thought that at first, but when I received forms 2 separate time to fill out,  I thought it was included.  None of this is important, though.  Thank you for your commitment to our world, your leadership, and your hard work.

I just got the following email:

I am having major difficulties trying to access the Build a Better World ebook that I purchased. I have gone to the download link it downloads to my phone however when I try to open it I get an error message saying cannot open. I have tried it on my Android phone as well as my tablet. What program or app do I need to read my ebook? I have tried to access different threads to ask the question and cannot. I have sent a text message and got the answer to go on a thread and ask the question. What do I do?



My impression is that most people download the ebook and it just works.  I'm not much of an ebook expert, I've only read a few.   But for this book, I did pull it up on my phone and on my laptop.  On each I had to get an app for reading ebooks.  But my impression is that people that are into ebooks kinda have this app already.

So this thread already has a bunch of people talking about some bits and bobs about getting this to work.  Some of that might be all the info you need.  If not, then I think the thing to do is to pick the one thing you want to read it on and we will start figuring it out from there.  We would need to know more details about the device.

I have read kindle.  Did not realize until I scanned responses (amazing how that works) that there were apps for reading ebooks.  Downloaded one and not only can I read the book, but a lot of other things are easier to read too.  Excited to get started.  Sorry for not reading responses first.  :p
