I've done my best to support claims with evidence and separate opinion from fact. However, as you'll learn in Chapter 2, history is not what we think it is. Despite my best efforts, the nature of history makes it possible that I have misrepresented facts or distorted the work of others. I promise that any oversights were unintentional, and I believe that my arguments and the thoughts they provoke are valuable despite any inaccuracies. I'll do my best after the book's publication to update future editions with any corrections or improved references as I'm made aware of them; I will also note them at http://www.mythsofinnovation.com.
