    Oh, I have "Velocity Studies" by Gordon, I haven't tried playing anything in it because I still play pretty slow.

    I'll look for that other one, and of course an Arban's, printed paper == real wait until the grid's down or just the net and see.

    Without proper guidance, Claude Gordons system is no better than just buying an Arbans, Clarke and just "going for it".

    I can't really appreciate the internet generations dislike for structured learning. The suggestion that googled info is equivalent to having learned the methodology of getting those results is just plain B.S.

    Collections of methods and tidbits of advice from the internet usually end up like gigabytes of stolen MP3s, no appreciation for this individual messages, not time to really "get into" the vast collection and ever less willingness to really learn something.

    Posters like this get NOTHING from me but web sites if the stuff happens to be legally available there. In the case of CG, it takes 70 years of being dead before anything can end up in the public domane. Assuming that everything is available as a pdf free for passing around does not show much respect for those that own this intellectual property.

    Here is a quote from Mr Gordon:

    "Personal experience is the best teacher if it can be put into comprehensive words. The wise recipient of such words may then set the course for early achievements he might not have had for several years or perhaps not at all, had he gone it alone."
    - Claude Gordon

    You should *buy* all of Claude's books. Stealing them by download pdfs is just bad karma man!

    You can pick up his books from amazon.com

    What!! Do you mean that having access to the info isn't enough?
    ---
    Rowuk is right. I end up crushing a lot of spirits because many students think that mere access to the info is the same as knowing and applying. A person needs to have a METHODOLOGY to learning. Having it and knowing it isn't the same.
    Bytes of info isn't the same as training the brain. The brain is best trained following a systematic approach.
