    Print error in THE PRIMAL BLUEPRINT?

    Primal Fuel
    I purchased THE PRIMAL BLUEPRINT from Amazon last weekend. My copy skips from page 142 to page 175.

    Anyone else see this or did I just get a copy?

    Thanks,

    Dan

    It looks OK on the Kindle version.
    Page 145 is the start of Chapter 5
    Page 175 is Why Run When You Can Grok

    There are 20 pages of text between the two.

    Then you're still missing ten pages...
    Are you a college student, trying to navigate college while being Primal? Do you know any other PB college students on a tight budget? Heck, for that matter, are YOU trying to live Primal on a budget? Enroll at Primal University!

    I am processing a return through Amazon. Hopefully will get a replacement soon. I am hooked on the book and am eager to keep reading!

    Looks like my copy of the print book appears to be a isolated printing issue as tons of folks aren't replying with "me too." :')

    Trying a journal. We'll see how long that lasts....

    You are missing 32 pages, which is a standard "signature" size in the printing business. It's not uncommon for one signature to be accidentally dropped in the process of collecting and binding all of the signatures together into a book.

    I'd be shocked if Amazon gave you any trouble about a replacement volume.

    I had a book problem through Amazon and they didn't give me any trouble at all when returning and getting a new copy. They're very good to do business with.

    When your book printer/book binder runs out of a signature (series of pages, usually a multiple of 4) in the middle of a run, that's what happens (as someone who ran feeder lines for 2 larger book printers, this happens quite a bit at the end of production runs).

    Return it. It's a manufacturing defect that got missed by QC.
    Peak weight on Standard American Diet: 316.8 lbs
    Initial Weight When Starting Primal: 275 lbs
    Current weight: 210.8 lbs
    Goal weight: 220 lbs (or less): MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.

    Close, but no cigar. lol. A signature is not a multiple of 4, but a power of 2: 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64. The point is that the signature is printed at the same time on the same sheet of paper, then folded over and the ends cut to make up consecutive pages for a book or magazine.

    But the advice to return it is spot on.
