Thanks Jamie that was good information. I guess it would be nice to have the book. His website doesn't have the book though.

The book is interesting but it is mostly stuff you can learn else where and everything else it talks about you can't change! It also repeats itself over and over and over.

It is worth a read if you haven't seen it but I wouldn't pay money for it.

Just go here for most of what Big Jim has to say. Just takes a long time to read the rccars thread...but is interesting at times.
