This will be in the appendix, I'm sure.

Wait for the 2nd edition.

Creakyknees 10-11-13 02:35 PM

Ordered. God Bless Amazon Prime.

Review will be forthcoming, maybe, eventually.

Thanks for the heads up. Picking up my copy at the local B&N on the way home.

+1. Their 1-click buy is great... and dangerous.

EventServices 10-11-13 03:32 PM

Thanks, everyone! I think you'll enjoy this one.

And I direct your attention to the top of page 241. (And p.49)

Chris contributed about 20 sidebars of mostly anecdotal stuff.

Any plans for kindle?

EventServices 10-11-13 09:27 PM

It'll be a while, but not as long as...

Roadie - which was released in '08 - just recently came out for eReaders.

Kool. Loved roadie. Someone borrowed it and never returned it. Will need to pick it up on eReader again.

Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for the comment! This next one is a deeper dive into tactics etc. I await your reviews.

I read the free sample and ordered it yesterday. Looks like a great book.

Grumpy McTrumpy 10-13-13 06:27 AM

Ordered.

Now all I need is your Herbie Hancock.

Wow, 201 level class finals are really easy at Marquette. Plus they can't punctuate.

Creakyknees 10-15-13 09:46 PM

Finished. Unequivocal recommendation. Buy it. Read it. Get your teammates to read it. Require any new teammies to read it. Have a test.

Jamie, I think you covered just about everything, and did it well with humor and stories. Especially the last few chapters on teams and goals, great reminders at this time of year.

Jandro 10-15-13 09:55 PM

I'm 100 pages in and already sad it's going to end soon. So good.

+1 to everything Creaky is saying.
