We are getting the book ready to go.  I have done the photos and have most of the manuscript done.  We are updating the material on the pivot and transition.  As soon as that is done, the book is going to a publisher.  We are very close on that.

A kind of beta version of the website has been put together, put it needs a bit of work before it will be public.  We have some analysis software up and running, and we have a whole lot of video to put up as well.  We still have to work out some nuts and bolts about what is free and what is subscription, but it is getting there.

Thanks for the interest.  All of us know how much you guys want this to move forward and we are all doing our best to get it done.

Take care,
Rob

Do you have a target date for the release that you can share with us?  I know we're all very excited to get the book as well as see the website.  This is kinda like Christmas ... it can't get here soon enough!!!   :yahoo:

No real firm date, but the sooner the better on our end as well.  Geoff is doing more work on the section on the transition, and will get that to me soon for rewriting/editing.  After that, we are getting everything to a publisher and I am really hoping for a short turn around time on that end.

The website has a few more issues to resolve, but that is moving along as well.  Geoff and I talk about once a week or so, and we are really close to getting this work out there.

Thanks again guys.  Geoff is really very humbled by how interested you all are in the project.

This is going to be the second golf instruction book I've ever purchased ("5 Lessons" is the other one).  The "Encyclopedia" alone has helped my game so much and really enlightened me, I can only imagine the book's impact.  Thanks for the update!

Is this going to be an "easy read"?  As in, "plain english"?  Because I don't want to have to have two dictionaries and an encyclopedia next to me while I read about rotational torque and pivotal velocity and all of that crap...

Hoping for just some plain-jane words us non-college grads will understand.  Can't wait to see it!

This is definitely in the works.  The only issue with this is that about 150 people have put their names down for this and I am not positive how many books we can get.  Shouldn't be a problem; I've added your name to the list.

Minitour: no worries about the plain-speaking nature of the book.  Geoff wouldn't do it any other way.

Thank God!

Not that I don't appreciate the vast technical knowledge of several members here, but if I can't understand you it does me no good.

I don't know if we can get this exactly right, but there will be some real Slice-isms in this thing.  I can't tell you how often I have busted a gut when he has been telling me a story.  Watch out for the line "I had to liquidate the empire to come up with that $1800...."  Another great one so far is "Golf and life have beaten the ego out of me, I can assure you of that."  I love that last one, since it is part of a whole philosophy of not getting too consumed by scores and results.

Anyway, there is a lot of his personality and voice in the book for sure.

How much more will there be in the book compared to the 220 page Slicefixer Bible I downloaded?   Personnally, the website has me going.  Being able to break down the proper mechanics of what Slicefixer's teaches is what I'm excited about.  Will certainly be worth the subscription fee.

Steve,
I don't know what the problem is. I posed the same question last weekend and no response yet. I also pm'ed rankoutsider for any updates and no response yet from him although I only pm'ed him yesterday. I hope the book deal has not fell through.
If somebody knows anything, please update us. We are all wanting to know.

Sorry about not responding last week.  I didn't see the question.  Thanks for the PM.

Let me talk to Geoff today or tomorrow and see if he an I can get something definitive worked out in terms of completing the remainder of the work.  We are nearly done the manuscript, but important material on the transition and pivot needs to be added.  I think that Geoff feels that this is the real "heart" of the instructional material of the book, and wants it done in a way that reflects his thinking most accurately.  This obviously takes time.

Thanks again, guys, for the interest.

Best,
Rob

The forums have helped me with my slice, but now I have a hook, and some older faults are showing up.  I hope the answers will be in the book!
