Now just waiting on the mail… damn.March 15, 2018 at 2:46 pm #56866
Price of the paperback is $29.95. Showing for $35.51 right now from some hucksters called ‘prepbooks.’ Don’t buy it until the system shakes out and it is properly back for sale straight from Amazon for the right price.March 15, 2018 at 3:07 pm #56867GreenTipParticipant
You can order off Amazon now. I got a copy ordered.March 15, 2018 at 4:59 pm #56869osozorroParticipant
Price keeps rising… $40.53

Chaps, as stated the paperback is currently still under review. These prices are from 3rd party vendors who also don’t have the book yet. Prices are rising because the status is similar to out of print. When I approve the changes, when I get the email to do so, I will announce it. List price is $29.95. This has to happen no later than 24 hours so no later than 0800 tomorrow. Will announce, hopefully tonight.
This is why I have not sent out the mailer yet, or otherwise advertised. Perhaps I should have sat on this till tomorrow…..but did not anticipate the cover snafu.March 15, 2018 at 6:07 pm #56876JamisonParticipant
Just ordered the Kindle version!! Thanks!

glad I read this, I had just ordered from “Prepbooks” for $40.53………went and canceled it quickly. I’ll let Amazon get it sorted out and then try it again! Goes to show I should always check here first!

Congratulations on finishing this Max.
I will be watching the mailbox over the next few days until my just bought copy arrives.March 15, 2018 at 7:38 pm #56880
Dude, $40? I don’t even know who these prepbooks guys are. They are probably making a bunch while the book is actually down for review, and I’m pobably getting the reduced third party royalty rate.
I’ll let you know when I have approved it again. I’m going crazy waiting for the email. They can take up to 24 hours, from this morning. It should drop to the real price at that point.
This roll out has turned into a shit show, but I appreciate the drive to get hold of it.March 15, 2018 at 7:55 pm #56881kadelicParticipant
I was able to purchase the book for 29.95 at 1000 Central time. My invoice says Sold by: Amazon.com Services, Inc. I hope my money goes to the right place. I got a followup email from Amazon saying the estimated delivery date is March 21st, fwiw. Got the Kindle version too.March 15, 2018 at 9:17 pm #56884
@Max Thanks for the heads up and keep us posted!
~ Little - South TexasMarch 15, 2018 at 9:23 pm #56885TCParticipant
LOL, you can get it for $5,000 now. I think I’ll wait…

I did some research, it appears the company “prepbooks” that is reselling the manual is a joint venture co-owned by two gentleman by the name of “James Yeager” and “John Mosby”???March 15, 2018 at 9:52 pm #56892

We are definitely getting a glimpse into how some people make money. I am particularly impressed with the used-like new condition one for sale.
Kindle: I like the format and it is easily navigated. Obviously I haven’t read it yet, but I did flip through all of the pages and read a few parts the happened to grab my attention.
No obvious viewing problems that can plague some kindle editions.
Did see one typo “Tthe” let us know if you want such feedback and in what form? Email, PM, or in the Forum.
Not a big deal for me.
I look forward to given this the thorough attention it deserves.
Excellent work Max!March 16, 2018 at 6:18 am #56901Virgil KaneParticipant
So that’s why prices fluctuate on Amazon. I placed an order yesterday for $29.95 and I have yet to see the Kindle version on the website. Are you all getting it from your Kindle device or one the website?

I approved the prof just now. It will take as long as it takes, but some time today the spiders will crawl and it will reset to being for sale directly by amazon.March 16, 2018 at 7:51 am #56905Virgil KaneParticipant
I hate spiders.
I found the Kindle under the Kindle section. Usually I find both versions together. Maybe that happens after the spiders.

Yes. The paperback is now properly up, actually prices at $29.03 now – amazon has spiders that fluctuate prices also. The spiders also consolidate both versions together after a period of time, it just takes a bit. Soon, you will see version options for purchase in one place.
The paperback is, as usual for a manual, a better way to read and learn with the diagrams. Kindle is convenient to have with you.March 16, 2018 at 8:17 am #56907Jon R T (aka Blind Sack)Participant
Got em both. Reading is ongoing. Thanks Max

Started reading the kindle version. Great work Max! The writing style seems like it will maximize retention of the material.
