This is one heck of a book!!!! I'm already halfway through. Best book since Me & My Guitars.
One part that floored me was the fact that Paul actually saved the pieces from the D'Angelico when he cut the holes. This book is a gem and was totally worth the wait.

Thanks, Phil!

Since you guys were my first "reviewers" I sent copies of your comments to one of my editors at Schiffer. Let her know they were right in publishing the book on our guy Paul.

This is what she said:

"Terrific, that’s great. Do you think you could encourage any of them to leave reviews on Amazon?"

I didn't know you could leave a review on an Amazon book without having bought it through them but apparently you can. So feel free to do so if you like the book. Your comment may well encourage someone else to get one for personal use or as a gift. This applies to current and future readers

Thanks again, guys

Norm,

I bought two of your books at CAAS. I started reading last night and just finished. The book is great. You make Paul come alive.

You really did an amazing job.

Thanks,
Jim Prater

Hi Norm,

I just received a message from Amazon informing me that the book, ordered on April 11, is estimated to be delivered here in Norway August 18 by standard international shipping. I really look forward to enjoying it.

Norm! Got my copy at CAAS and have one on the way I pre-ordered! I am so glad you were able to get this very worthwhile project published! Paul was so great to us all and what a resource. He will be missed by us all, but what a great tribute this pays to Paul's legacy! Thank you Norm!

Norm, I've gotten started on your book and a big part of my fascination is due to the fact that it resonates so well with how I see myself as a musician in this world. It has helped me to clarify my own goals for the future! I'm looking forward to continuing on through the book and learning more of what you've learned and shared!

Just a heads up
Amazon is now accepting reviews of the book if you care to make a comment after reading it.

Apparently it doesn't matter if you didn't buy it from them

thanks
