I talked with Brad Simpson 2 wks ago (he lives here and we usually play pool together several times a week) and as of then he had taken over the re-write of the book and it was nowhere near ready for the printer and a LONG way from being for sale.

Doesn't surprise me, maybe next January then-

JER...I believe that Brad is part-owner of a poolroom in Bangkok, with Mika Immomen. He also travels there often, to purchase gems, which he is also an authority, from what I understand.

In ANY case, getting the Blue Book into Barnes & Noble WHENEVER is a huge coup! That puts it into the mainstream of American readers, as well as all over the internet! Kudos to Brad, if this is his doing!

I hope you are right but I would not hold your breath. On their website it says summer of 2005 but who know when it will come out.

I talked with Brad last Friday. If the book makes it out by Christmas it will be a miracle.

Hi Jer,

He does spend a lot of time there but he didn't move there....yet. He told me 5 yrs ago that he wants to but hasn't done it yet.

Scott, He didn't mention the publisher when we talked and the only time he really talked about it was when I was down on the 9! /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif (kidding...he's not like that at all.)

I talked to Martyne Bachmen recently who is the author or co-author of the 3rd edition and she says it will be out in August 2005....

According to Brad she is no longer the author or co-author. He has taken the re-write on himself.
