Has anybody heard what the status is for the 3rd Hofzinser book? The email that I have for Stephen Minch no longer works.

Thanks!

I asked Magic Christian about this when I lectured in Vienna eighteen months ago. He said all the material he'd been sent on.

Stephen Minch has been working diligently on this project full time for over a year. It is IMMENSE--two volumes.
Any time you are working from a book in a different language it takes three times as long as normal.
But it's coming!

Fantastic news that the last pair of books is being worked on.

I missed out on the first two volumes when they were initially released. After much hunting online - and I mean, much hunting - I eventually found them, and at a really good price.

Amazingly, from what I can tell, they still have some for sale. So if anyone is still looking, wants to purchase the books in lieu of the new volumes, you can still get them here:

You neglected to mention that it's on sale for $100 off the retail price!

Thank you for the tip. I preordered these way back when but had to cancel the preorder due to unforeseen circumstances. I have always regretted not getting these. Ordered!!!
