I just got my copy today (hard bound). Yes, the company did a nice job. My aunt informed me about this company that produces books for those who wish to self-publish. I know I'm taking a huge money loss for going in this direction. I am not writing for The Independent Locksmith Journal anymore, so some money is better than none at all, and I really appreciate the members here that have given me the initial monetary support . I asked one member to do critique on my book. The techniques that I am using to decode many 6 lever padlocks in the locked position are awesome. This information you will never find anywhere else.
