From a hand-written letter sent to my UK publisher with a return address in one of Her Majesty's prisons:

"I very much enjoyed your book Superforecasting and thought that you might like to know that it has become very popular amongst white-collar criminals. The general opinion is that we're all here for bad decisions, so a book about making better ones is more than welcome. It's written in a nice easy way to understand, which is greatly appreciated. I am sure that it will help a lot of people."

This will undoubtedly be the top blurb on all future editions.
