Last week I reviewed The Wealthy Barber Returns and held a contest to give away a signed copy to one lucky reader.  The contest closed on Wednesday, and yesterday I compiled all of the entries and randomly selected Gary as the winner of the book.  Thanks to everyone who entered the contest, and congratulations to Gary!
