Simon, I've been going thru the book from cover to cover. Nice work! and great ideas...
If there's another reprint, I hope they can correct the photo reproductions; that's a detractor to the book.
If you send me all the originals I'll spend an hour in Photoshop and send them back :)
Evil Genius has this problem with other products too, so it's probably totally on their pre-press end, not you!
Getting good 'Product Shots' is non-trivial and takes a lot of work and lighting setup etc.
...you don't LOOK Evil.
