Really? No more information? At least tell us if it was a breakthrough or a further setback...

I am just as excited as all of you but i expect the last thing Richard wants to do is put his head on the block..... it must be very hard to give any amount of certainty to anything in his field of work.

I found a solution to taking the photos. We should be able to do that sometime this year. It requires three people to come together (two of which must travel for that).

I believe this time it will get done!

Yes, Jason England will be posing for the photos. We have to wait until Julie Eng finishes the John Thompson book, and takes a rest, before we all get together to take the photos.

Not yet. In the fall, I hope. All my efforts have been concentrated on getting the DeLand book (15 years!) out the door in the next month.

Put back because of the new edition of Greater Magic, I think.

Hey guys! If you like Jennings you should definitely check out the book from Fenik called The Code. Fenik was a personal student of Larry Jennings, Michael Skinner and Baltazar Fuentes

It's interesting to compare the first two posts of this topic with the last two.

Same posters, same question, same answer, different decade.

Really Ricardo?!
Are you going to ask that same question every 12 years?

Quit hounding Richard.

He's working on it!

Richard, is there a chance that Jennings takes it easy will be put out to celebrate the 30th anniversary of you starting the book?

I started the book in 1983, so the 30th anniversary was in 2013. :)

I have all the photos now, and the text is done other than putting in corrections from the proof readers. Just trying to find the time.

Richard,

Will the Jennings book be the "Takes it Easy" material or, as you mentioned before as a possibility, a combination of material beyond that?

Likely 600 pages. And 8.5 x 11 like most of my books.
