I think this was/is a great idea Rob, (which is why I participated in it). What should not be lost, is the possibility of having your training records, and the essays in the book, admitted into evidence for a jury to scrutinize at your murder/manslaughter/assault trial. I am not kidding folks.
A jury has the right to view the facts as they unfolded through the eyes of the defendant. If you can convince the judge that you precieved the events based on your training and education, the judge then has the duty to admit the information into evidence, and your attorney can explore your thought process via what is in the book.
With that in mind, don't write anything in the book that can be used against you in court.
