"Dear Businessperson,

Having shelled out $495 for a rough draft, you have helped to
ensure that the supplier sees no need to improve their publishing
Have you asked yourself if their standards of data-gathering,
fact-checking, and conclusion-drawing are of similar quality
to the writing, editing and presentation? Did they bring equal
care and pride to all aspects of the product that they sold to you?
On a scale of one to ten (one being lowest) how confident are you
that you got full value for your money?
