Topic: Doug Dyment's CALCULATED THOUGHTS
Message: Posted by: Indistinguishable (Feb 14, 2021 11:50PM)
I made an instant purchase when I spotted Vanishing Inc selling Doug Dyment's new book 'Calculated Thoughts'.

Only after buying did I see that this was also a Vanishing Inc production. It's very encouraging to see the emphasis that Andi & Josh are placing on books.

I have never met Doug, but I have made regular trips to his Deceptionary site - where there is some great reference material. I was thus pretty confident that if I provided all those gems online for free, then a hardcopy book would surely contain immense value.

Due to the pandemic my travel home is restricted at the moment, so I fear it will be four or five months before I actually get my hands on the book - but I can now sleep easy knowing that if it sells out super fast, my copy is safe and secure.

In the meantime I'll look forward to reading others' reviews and 'favourites' as they work their way through this tome.

I hope that those of you who were lucky enough to acquire the first printing of this book are enjoying the material. That first printing (1500 copies) essentially sold out in its first six weeks of availability. You may still find the occasional copy at a smaller dealer's shop, but the publisher and major retailers all show "out of stock". I have [url=https://www.deceptionary.com/calculatedthoughts.html]a few copies [/url]left, but shipping from Canada is not cheap, so you might want to wait for the second printing (about two months away).

I am posting this because many owners of the book may not be aware that I maintain free [url=https://www.deceptionary.com/content-s.html]online supplements[/url] for all of my books. The additional material for [i]Calculated Thoughts[/i] already comprises the equivalent of about ten additional book pages, so don't neglect to check it out on a regular basis.
