The print version of the current issue of Primary Point (vol. 35, no. 2, Summer 2018) listed the wrong book review in the table of contents and included on page 25 extra text from a different book review. The book reviewed in this issue is No-Gate Gateway. We will publish the full review of Buddhism beyond Gender in our next issue. We regret the error.
