As the title asks I am curious how many of you have read them and if they have anything new to add about modern instruction.
Here at my mountain we just went through the first day of returning instructor training and this was brought up. Our trainer who is a examiner and very accomplished instructor has said there is nothing that was changed just restated in different ways. I am curious about that since I believe the two old manuals that were changed were written about 10-15 years ago, and that was before the popularity of rockered big skies that we see a lot of our students skiing on. I have had to reinvent ideas to work with some of these students, not drastically but I believe somethings have changed in the realm of instruction and would be rather surprised if our manuals didn't have something new to add to this discussion.
So before I order these two new books I am asking some of you who have read them to weigh in.
