Yeah, saw it Barry.

From his very first Post here it was odds-on to be the guy who had been ranting about you on 2+2.

He is complaining about blonde & Tighty now.

All standard stuff.

Not read the thread when it started (only joined here in 2012).

Is it worth getting the first version, then the second version when it comes out too? Seen a few people recommend it, so thinking of getting it myself.

They are totally different books, material wise. You don't need to have read the first one to read the second one and vice versa.

The first book is about mental game leaks - tilt, overconfidence, low motivation etc.

Second book is about A-game, the zone, learning etc.

Originally it was going to be one book, but we had way too much material.

Ha!

Yes, he got the wrong bloke, but it's just detail.......

Think it's time we stopped giving trolls the benefit of the doubt & just shoot on sight.  

Still, he linked to us from 2+2, so we get some extra traffic. Every cloud & all that.

If you're thinking of getting the book, have a read of the reviews on Amazon... Wink

As soon as I read the 2nd post of 'John Keen' it seemed obvious he had an agenda. It's very clear he's invested a lot of time preparing his barrage of questions, this before the ridiculous graph presentation (which seemed inconclusive given a small sample size aligned with expected high level of early post sale reviews, fwiw...). Every point then finishing with 'just to satisfy my curiosity' or some equivalent... almost felt like a subtle (initially!) sales pitch to furtively question the integrity of the authors.

As a general point, what a sad way to try and develop his business... whether methods like this work or not, is the loss of his integrity worth it?

Oh, and I now want to buy the book more if he's going to these lengths, must be good!

I bought the kindle version last year and really enjoyed it. My only neg was that the flow of the book felt little difficult and unnatural for me, maybe because i am dyslexic and prefer easily told journey books (aka Dan Brown).
