Hi Oboe--thanks! If I've been able to help you enjoy skiing more in any way, then I am very pleased and gratified!
My apologies, gang, but Barnes&Noble has no more copies of the book, either in their retail stores or on their website, nor does Amazon.com. It really isn't available anywhere anymore, but I still have a few copies myself. If anyone wants one, drop me a PM with a post office address.
The Third Edition is sold out! I appreciate--deeply--all those who have purchased a copy of my book, and those who have supported it. I am working on a Fourth edition, but "spare time" just doesn't seem to be ENOUGH time to get it done as quickly as I'd like. I'll let you know....
Meanwhile--just a reminder--I have recently been informed that Ron LeMaster's excellent book, THE SKIER'S EDGE, is once again available, after also being sold out for a while. We have discussed Ron's book here a few times, and Ron has posted here occasionally himself. The book has great photo-sequences of some of the best skiers in the world, and includes some of the clearest explanations I've come across about skiing's technical details.
