I just talked with the publisher I will have two copies tomorrow and by the end of the week, possibly Monday, I will have fifty.

He said they look great.

Great news Harald! Every day since Nov. 1st, I take the long walk down my driveway to the mailbox-looking for the book. Looks like our long wait is nearly over. :lol: :lol:

Great news.
My copy is on order.

Hope it gets down under before I fly north to ski in Dec.

Cant wait for the book and then to put in practice what I have learned lurking in the forum.

Hi Harald,
Looks like an excellent cover, and terrific book. Like everyone else, I can't wait to read it, learn it, and DO IT.

I did notice something in that cover picture which is very helpful. On your jacket are two lines, some people might think they are pockets, but I think they are more like the lines etched on the canopy of fighter jets which give pilots reference points for things like the horizon. What look like zipper pulls are most likely what I would call a C-BAM. This acronym describes what those indicators do: Counter-Balance Angle Monitors. You can see that the angle of the zipp...I mean C-BAM matches and is parallel to Harald's legs, while the pocke...I mean, the reference line on the jacket is parallel to his upper torso. By measuring the angle between the line and the C-BAM, we can see how much counterbalancing Harald is applying in this turn at this moment. :wink: Now if we attached a GPS to these indicators, we could tell exactly how much counter-balancing is involved in each turn, and probably calculate the most fun way to get down the mountain.
You can also see two smaller similar devices, on the edges of the coat near the hips. These are not outrigger C-BAMs, but C-ANs, or Counter-Action Notators which notate how much Counter-Action Harald is applying.
Now, if you read the book and heed the lessons in it, and get your C-BAMs and C-ANs adjusted correctly, you will have what Harald has on his face. Not the goggles, but a great big SMILE :D :D :D
I hope there's a chapter on adjusting these instruments properly.

Thanks for the orders. We are very excited to get them out to you. There is lots of fun stored for the ski season in that book.
