Re: BobboFitos book?

No book is worth $750, ur crazy for asking someone to pay that much.

Maybe $100 but thats pushing it dude.

Re: BobboFitos book?

Re: BobboFitos book?

I am just going through the videos and am quite impressed.

Has anyone out there that has READ the book and WATCHED the DVD's?

I would like to know how the two compare. My presumption is that the book is going to be a lot more thorough than the DVDs but can someone out there tell me if there is a lot of new concepts discussed in the book that are not at all discussed in the DVDs and if the books does a better job of explaining some of the concepts in more details than the DVDs?

thanks,

Re: BobboFitos book?

I have both, the book is more detailed although less well organised and presented at the moment. This is supposedly going to change as Rob has hired someone to edit the book and that would be a nice improvement although it is still perfectly usable. I would say having both is good as although the two cover the same content they state it in slightly different ways which helps to ensure you understand everything.

If you afford the book to not pay the small extra for the video would be silly, if you can't afford the book then the video will be good but of slightly less value i guess.

PS I have also done Robs Group Coaching which referred to the book a fair bit, i think my game has definately come on since using all 3 and my win rate has improved markedly (i was already a winner at a reasonable bb/100)

Re: BobboFitos book?

reminder that Super/System cost 200 1970s dollars when it came out, which after inflation is pricier than this book.

Re: BobboFitos book?

Mason,
Although sometimes i disagree with your views I really wish you would review some of the E-Books/videos out there. I know 2+2 doesnt sell in that market, but
I see and read so much based on Sklansky's writing etc.Also I think the e-book/ video market needs a wake-up call .

Re: BobboFitos book?

I'm confused about BobboFito's e-book. I think he took it off the market for a while...is it back on the market now? How can one get it?

Re: BobboFitos book?

Send him a PM or Email, he is a coach at Leggo and there is a forum on there for the book. If you still can't find his contact details send me a PM i can give you his Email if you are seriously considering a purchase i guess he won't mind.

Sorry buddy, but I've owned way too many pirated copies of software that cost $1000+ for a license to believe that nobody is going to try and make some easy money off of Bobbo's work.
I'm not your buddy.

As for Warez, people who use it would not have paid for it anyway. The fact of the matter is that the B.S. pushed by Biz (I am former programmer) that says all software that is pirated, is money lost. IT'S BULLCRAP.

You didn't pay 1/2 or 1/4 of the price for your software.

To say that people selling "shares" of the book is tantamount to using a key-gen for software; begs the question after that non-sequiter.

Assuming that everyone is a thief because you are, is a bit arrogant.

If he was that concerned about piracy, he would print the book. For $750 per book, he can afford it. Not to mention that the cost of printing would be offset by the higher sales (no piracy). Guess you will tell us how the copiers will be running day and night if it's hardcopied.

Piracy is a red herring.

Re: BobboFitos book?

Just checking in: is the price still at $750? Lower the tag and with all this hype, he'll sell a million at $350.

The Bbbofitos book is well written and full of good info. Also, I met the author recently and found him easy going and extremely knowlrgable.

Re: Please do not tell anyone this..

I bought his DVD set, which is based on his book, and it's one of my favorite poker materials -- easy to watch and understand and he explains his concepts briefly but sweet.

Has his book been edited yet?
