A little book I wrote

So, seeing that there were some rather large errors in my previous article on manipulation, I decided to fix it and put it together with my other article on how the locks work. All in an easy portable format! Websites can't really be printed or copied as easy so I made it into a pdf. This is a 25 page book that takes someone with no knowledge of safe locks, to being able to manipulate their first one! If you've read my articles on here, this is a bit redundant but I did fix a lot of mistakes! Let me know how it is :) I tried to make it understandable to the average joe but I feel I rushed the info past them too fast. I figured it's a book and as long as everything is there, they can re-read it and look it over as often as they like until they get it :lol:

Hmm..... that doesn't seem right. Pm me your email and I'll email it to you; maybe that'll work. Or try this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B89g6zkXku3HVDdpYkg0VjhweEU/edit?usp=sharing I uploaded it onto google drive and the link is to the file on google drive. That might work better for you


EDIT: I just noticed with the google drive link, colors don't show up as well. Most noticibly is Red which appears orange. That's only a problem with the colored labels on the first few pictures though, everything else is fine. The biggest problem is seeing the red dots that label what the contact points are. They turn out fine if you download it though.

I just scanned through it without reading it yet. Looks pretty thorough with nice pictures and labels. Oh and if you're worried about viruses in .pdf files use Foxit .pdf reader instead of Adobe? I'll read later.. Thanks Daggers! :D

Daggers!!! Congrats on a well deserved sticky :D Very obvious you put lots of effort into this.

I plan to read through it a second time, but the thing that strikes me....
is how much info you were able to convey in just 25 pages. Impressive.
Putting that kinda stuff into words can be both tedious & time consuming.

p.s. and thanks for the shout out. Feels good to know I played a small part in you enjoying manipulation!

Thank you! Believe me, you played a huge part! I got interested because of your chronicles and it also provided me with information missing from other sources :)

Thanks! I think I might self publish it so I can have it in hard copy and an actual book format. If anyone wants to buy one, it'll be available for that too. I'll be adding in a few things to the book also for those who wish to purchase one :) I let everyone know how it goes! I want to get myself a s&g 6630 and include some group 2M manipulations in there too so the book might take a while to get made :P
