On the other hand, your own Complex Made Simple has 3 reviews (averaging over 4 stars). [I own a copy but have read literally no more than about 3 pages, out of laziness/busyness, not because there was anything wrong with the 3 pages I did read].
Three reviews does seem few, although I don't know what the norm is. Still, I see a fix for this. Simply offer $1000 for positive reviews instead of $250, and retitle the book "Complex Made Profitable".
