Neil Hughes | 4 comments Hello,

Someone appears to have added a couple of quotes from my book, which is nice (although they're far from the quotes I'd have chosen to highlight..!)

Anyway, they've misquoted them both and cut sentences off in the middle (which makes me wonder if it was done automatically by a bot or something?)

Can a kind librarian please tidy them up? I would suggest this quote should have the final word removed so it ends with "well-planned":

And this quote should end after "mistakes." since the rest is the beginning of a new part:

Apologies if this is the wrong forum - I did look for a means to tidy these myself but I couldn't find it.

Thanks very much.

Thank you, Abcdarian!

I figured it was something like that. Hopefully they'll highlight something more quotable next time, there are some much better passages in there! ;)

Much appreciated.
