    I have no idea but why don't you let us know if it's worth it!? It is a secure address so I don't think you'll get ripped off. If it had some methodology in it, it would be worth it.

    Well, I probably will. I'm not worried about getting "ripped off"; I just don't want to spend the money on it if it's badly written and lacking any substance. What can I say? I'm picky about grammar.

    It was published in 2007, so it appears, and the site seems to still be alive.

    Re: Portrait of Bill Chase

    To update, this book is indeed well written and contains some interesting information and interviews. It isn't a biography in the normal sense, and does attempt to "paint a portrait" of the man; you get an overall impression of his life, rather than "on this date Bill ate at this restaurant".

    I'd recommend it to anyone who's a fan of Bill Chase.
