Been reading this over the last couple of days and will do a full review by the end of the week .
A quick heads up so far after reading a few chapters .
Itís an absolute brilliant read and the clean nature of all the routines is amazing .
There truly is something for everyone in here and infact itís more a case of for me at least finding the routine I would use the least .
It really is that good and itís also written with Marks passion and wit throughout which is a joy .
Will keep you updated with once I finish all the chapters but itís a no brainer imo Gaz 🙂

Thanks for the kind words Gaz, now these are landing hopefully some reviews will appear from people who have bought it. These are always the most valuable reviews for a buyer and the ones creators are always nervous about. It doesnít matter how confident you are in your material you are never sure how others will feel about. Likewise when writing with humour you never know if your sense of humour will translate.

Ok...

So I opened it...

I don't have HC with me - but it does look like it will 'fit'/match

I opened the front page to see the inscription - which is nice... I then opened to have a super brief flick through... before I start reading tonight

Now admittedly I could be making a fool of myself here... as I haven't read any of the content... this could be intentional - and if it is - sorry for the spoiler... maybe anyone waiting for their copy can look away now? Just Mark and those who have already got theirs can keep reading...

So...

My book is back to front, or upside down, or Chinese, or something?

If I'm being thick and it is explained than whoops... I just had to rush out to a gig so am posting this on the move, without the backwards book.

So my hardcover front cover, goes to the upside down last page of the book... if I want to read it, I will need to flip it around - start at the back [upside down]...

I can't work out how only one copy [mine] could have been a mistake. So either they are all printed wrong... or if they are quartos - maybe half the books are done wrong??? I was hoping it was just one... and like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, I've now won a guided tour around Mark Chandaue's house...

Anyway - on first impressions of the book - judging from the cover [which in this case just proves you should never do that] it feels like it will fit in with HC... but looking on the inside and I'm all discombobulated... anyway - when I get my guided tour round Mark's bedroom - are there any photo's you guys want me to take for you?

Wonder if I can attach photos yet ... or if I need more posts before being verified on here to do that....?

UPDATE

Ok the photos didn't work.... I probably need another thousand or so posts first - to have permission

I wanted to cover up the text - anyway at least I have learned today how to put photos up onto here... even if the quality of the photos ended up not being very good...

Hey Duster,
Congratulations you got one of the extremely rare Australian Editions Smile

Basically what happened is that when I opened pre-orders I did so on the promise that if there were any delays these would ship within days of the promised date. So when the books arrived with the Collectorís Edition stamp missing Steve and I went into overdrive to get the covers all fixed. As itís not a normal process to redo just the covers in getting it all set up to get these fixed quick a few got twisted. We are still looking into how. These were in the first case of 30 that went out. Of those 30 20 have been delivered and 3 so far were like yours. Hopefully the remaining 10 of that batch that havenít landed yet are all fine.

Fortunately the first one to be found shipped to the U.K. so I was able to check the remaining stock before they went out and all were fine. So currently you have one of 3 rare copies. Of course you will receive a fully checked and perfect replacement. In the meanwhile the content is fine so you can read that one until the replacement arrives.

Hi Mark,

The book is well received. Content looks great, and thanks for message you wrote. Yes, itís upside down, but that works for me. Just makes it even more of a collectors edition.

Understand your pride in this project, and understand you want this to be right.

Iím looking forward to study the material in the coming weeks.

If you have received the book donít forget to join the Facebook group. I have already posted an alternate version of free will rock you in there that has no ambiguity. I think Michael Murray has some additional ideas on his effect to share and with the variety of interchangeable methods and presentations in the book I am sure people will have all manner of ideas.

Hopefully we will see some reviews soon.

Mark, sorry to digress, but is the sale on your Harpacrown still on?
It is better to be trusted than liked.
Under promise. Over perform.
