Default Thanks!

Thanks, Mary--glad you liked it. I've always given a standing offer of a full refund to anyone not happy with any of my books. Never given one yet.

Oh yeah? I was thinking the same EXACT thing about you and cjc. Both of you like to try and and tell everyone how it is around here. And you're the only one singing his praises here.

Just sayin'...

Put me down for two if you're taking pre-orders!

I know where I'd like to place one of my feet right now with one particular person in this thread. I won't mention any names but his initials are cjc...

I agree totally.

CJC.

I purchased your books. I read your books. I looked past the grammatical errors. I liked the content.

YOUR comments in this thread say more about YOU than anything you wrote in your books.

I read your first book CJC and liked it. I just finished reading Andy's book and liked it as well. Really not sure after reading your tempered posts/comments here that I will pony up for your second one now. I am a bit surprised by your behavior in this thread.
First of all, it was about Andy Sabisch's book, not your books. (Start your own thread to lash out and defend yourself since it seems to be necessary for you to do so) but yet you hijacked this thread in a childlike manner. Secondly, it disappoints me that a known reputable treasure hunter with your catalog of books would take off the gloves at just a hint of criticism and lash out at members here.
We have this document in the states called The Constitution (let google be your friend and look it up). Read the first amendment.( I am sure there are no spelling/grammatical errors there)
Anyway, if you can't handle a little criticism then don't sell to the public. I think you owe some members an apology. If you are a true gentleman and a professional, you will do the right thing.....or not. Suck it up buttercup and put on your man pants. For a person that writes a lot of words, you sure get offended by just a few.

ZR2Guy I totally agree with your assessment of much of this thread. I just wanted to hear about Andyís book on the Nox. I was surprised by cjc attacking fellow members on this forum for their initially straight forward critical comments about editorial problems with his books. I was equally surprised that this continued to spiral downward into mud slinging and worse from cjc and others. When someone on this forum attacks me verbally or if I write something that might seem negative about another member I consider sending them a private message to try to straighten things out instead of completely hijacking a thread and dumping all over the rest of us. I wish this stuff wouldnít happen here!

Jeff

Bought Andy's book and I'm reading it, but haven't finished it yet. My personal opinion is that it's well written with good descriptions of the controls and their functions; how and why to make adjustments on the controls. It's organized well and helpful for anyone who has not made use of, or does not understand all the control settings and adjustments. There are good descriptions of the differences and relative values of the 600 and 800 controls. There is some Minelab advertising. Seller on the listed site is the Sabisch family, which is why you get a signed copy. Shipped quickly by priority mail. I am glad that I purchased the book, and satisfied with its content.

Finally a nice little review of the book. Thanks.

I also own the book, a very good book with lots of information, especially for those new to using a multi-freq detector and much more information than a stock users manual has.

That's great goodmore, I'm looking forward to getting a first edition signed copy of your expert guide to digging tools...hearing your take on the digger/shovel controversy...maybe an in-depth look at tang lengths and composition...serrated blades or not?...an inside look at the Lesche/Predator split...what exactly is chrome moly 4130 aircraft quality steel?...sharpening tool comparisons...the uses for folding pocket saws...digging tools and self-defense...etc

Your tome should fill up 172 pages like Sabisch's, hopefully I gave you a few new ideas to expound on. And don't forget to autograph every copy for your fanboys!

As for the Sabisch book it's a worthwhile read and reference. I appreciate a book full of tips and techniques and I'm glad to support the author in exchange for some bits of previously unrealized knowledge. Some unnecessary fill, shill, finds pictures and Detecting 101, but at 172 pages there's still plenty of beyond basic info. As for the Equinox, I'm surprised how good it is straight out of the box. Turn it on, pick a mode, noise cancel and go

Never thought I would read a pissing contest here ! Entertaining , but after awile it gets old. Anyway , I bought the CJC book. Think I paid $18 with shipping. Not much. I looked past some of the grammar. Kinda like when your texting someone: no big deal. Alot I already knew. There were some informative things I didn't. Anything to better myself , even just a little is worth it to me. My only complaint would be that the print could be a little larger. Yes , I would buy it again. I have not bought Andy's book yet , but probably will.
