I like the magazine for the most part, but man they have some seriously shady business practices. They just send you books out of the blue, along with the bill! And they make it very difficult to opt out of this "service". When you complain they say that many of their customers appreciate the ease of receiving books they haven't ordered. Yeah right! So you end up having to send things back all the time (well, not really "all the time" but still....) VERY ANNOYING!
I started to sign up for a temp membership to the website to get a recipe and they required a credit card # and then I would have to cancel after one free month. I aborted the sign up process midway knowing my habit of not getting around to properly opting out of things. They kept my email address and ever since I get barraged with their spam offers. What adman does is purchase the book at the end of the year compiling all 12 issues.
as far as i can tell though he would have to buy that annual from their website.
on his wiki page it says kimball worked for a direct marketing firm before he got into publishing his magazines. dont know if that is related in any way to the companys practices.
