Survey on Prototype—chance for a free copy of the book

I'm looking for some input on different techniques and tools people
are using, as well as issues they've run into with prototyping.

Here's your opportunity to provide some input and have a chance at a
free copy of the prototyping book, expected later this year. I've got
a short, 5 page, survey — answer all the questions and you'll be
entered into a random drawing for a free copy of the book.
