Our book isn't yet in general distribution, so it has to be ordered online. As far as places to order, I think Amazon might beat out our website by a few bucks on shipping, but don't quote me on that!

I'm not that familiar with their books (only flipped through them a few times), but I think ours is a lot more "conversational" than theirs. I'd compare ours to a more in-depth Bill Bryson book - it takes a complex subject and breaks it down to the basics, walks you through them, and then builds back up to the advanced concepts, all the while sitting there with you to make sure you're not lost. I believe we have a lot more space dedicated to walking you through an entire game than those other resources (though, again, I haven't spent a lot of time with them, so I could be wrong), which we believe strengthens your understanding of the material.

Book ordered, should be here by the time I get back into the states. Cant wait to read it, does your website offer anything for people who just bought the book and have not enrolled in your course?

It comes with a code which unlocks video explanations for all the games used in the book, it's great.

Except for Captain Lazy Eye that is kind of distracting, and the corny jokes, the videos are great.

I would skip through a lot of them, but when I was lost the descriptions were very helpful. Especially for the "legally blond logic game."

After an unexpected delay caused by work, I am now back to studying for the Oct exam. I am about 20% through this book. So far I am very impressed, and the videos are a great addition to the text.

Yep, you get access to full video explanations for all the Games in the book. They're good for a year. I'm also currently trying to get them to update the index in the back for each new test - it's in the works, but I don't know when it's going to go through.
