A week after publishing my latest book ‘How to get good: Perfect practice when things are imperfect,’ and already I’m wanting to change some things in it.
The most glaring one is a saying which I attribute to Eleanor Roosevelt. It is the only quote or attributed statement in the book which I relied on internet memes for veracity, which was quite careless. The other statements where I cite someone else, come from having read books or seen videos that easily confirm whom to attribute.
So my bad. Eleanor Roosevelt could not be demonstrated to have said it. I just hope my readers could forgive me and retain some trust that I will make more of an effort to be believable in the future.
