About "A lifetime of practice material."
"The website slogan is the goal of all this. Since 1984 I have been developing a set of teaching material and techniques I wish to document in my books for use for myself and my students -- and hopefully sell a few too. Some of the books are listed in the
Mike's books area."-MP
