This book can up on my Amazon feed and I noticed someone else on the forum had the cover on their signature.

Who has read this? Would you recommend it? Why?

Please keep the negativity, if any, off this thread.

I wrote the book. I quite like it, but then again I'm probably a little biased. In all seriousness the amazon reviews are legitimate. They are verified purchases from mostly perfect strangers. It has sold quite well and continues to do so with very little intervention on my part. I only mentioned it on this forum when it was released and haven't harassed you guys since!

In the book, I talk about some of the collective big bass wisdom from John Hope, Bill Murphy, and Doug Hannon. In the second half of the book, I examine about 40,000 freshwater catch points to see how things like weather, time of day, time of week, moon phases etc... impact fishing. I was surprised at some of the findings. I'm no Hemingway, but I've been told the writing isn't shabby.

I'm also happy to answer any questions you may have about the book. I've done so for quite a few folks from this forum via pm.

On a side note, I got the chance to spend the afternoon with John Hope yesterday. He is the author of "Trackin Trophies." John is one of my fishing heroes and a big inspiration for my book. We spent several hours pouring over maps, talking fishing strategy, and exchanging stories. Talk about an awesome guy with a wealth of knowledge!

I have read it and re-read it (some parts 3 times). It is very well written in my opinion. The referencing and cross-referencing from previously written works is very informative. All bass anglers would be wise to read all of the books that Josh references but you should at least read this book as Josh does a great job of picking out the topics that are important to us anglers. Josh's analysis of the 40,000 data points opened my eyes a couple of times. It completely wipes out several myths and/or old wives tales that many, many people hold to be gospel. Buy it. Read it. You won't be sorry.

It's sold and distributed through Amazon. They tinker with the price regularly. Right now it is $11.99. Free shipping if you have prime. The Kindle version is $9.99. Link below.

Read the preview on Amazon, and got pulled in. Just bought it, and looking forward to reading the rest. Good luck with sells, I think you will do really well.

I'm not an expert on e-book readers, but I think there is a kindle app that would let you read it on your iphone.
