I say go for it. But don't get rid of that prepublication copy as you call it. I would say that those may be rather neat to look at in a number of years.;-)You couldn't be more right J, Pete's book would be a steal at twice the price!
Had the chance to look over the prepublication copy, still need to buy the real thing. (..maybe a Christmas gift to myself?)
Landmark doesn't have one, but they do have two preview copies to check out.Guys thanks for the kind words on the book. Yep I'll still sign and or personalize any books for North America.
Did anyone who visited the new ADs see a book on the counter near the watches. There should be a display copy to leaf through.
The Doxa book is waaaay worth the price. An excellent collector's piece in itself. I find it absolutely fascinating. I keep it were it should be, on the coffee table, and I find myself consantly picking it up and re-reading it. Great photos too! I got mine signed by Dr. Pete. Nice work :-!
And if he decides he just doesn't like water, you can just add it all to your own collection! You can't lose in that deal haha... :-!Since we're talking about Pete's book.....Pete, are you still signing books that are sold here in N. America?
I'm planning on getting one signed for my son. He's only three now, but there will come a day. Perhaps the day that he receives his first scuba certification.:think:
How great would it be, to one day say "Hey son, congratulations on your certification. Your Mom and I have a little something that we put back just for this special day"
He opens a box and finds inside one of Pete's books personally signed to him, congratulating him on his accomplishment. He then digs a little deeper, and finds a silver aluminum tube. In that tube, a DOXA Pro perfectly NOS and just for him.
I know if my dad had done something like that when I was a newly certified diver, my spirits would have been flying so high that they'd still be circling the clouds.
I'm pretty sure that I don't have too much to worry about. Right now, he knows his marine animals better than he knows his land based critters and is constantly chattering about going scuba diving.And if he decides he just doesn't like water, you can just add it all to your own collection! You can't lose in that deal haha... :-!
