Phyllis and I just finished a complete rewrite and update of my Heavy Weather Tactics Online Book and we are very excited about the way it turned out.
I originally wrote the book as a series of posts back in the winter of 2008-2009. Re-reading the entire series as a whole, with the separation of three years, allowed me to see it in a whole new light and with new clarity.
Shorter and Better
The result was that when we came to re-write the series of posts and turn them into an Online Book the text got both shorter and more complete. I know that sounds like a contradiction, but writing short is actually much harder and takes much longer than writing long.
Comments Make It Better
At the time of writing—and over the three years since—many thousands of people read the first edition posts and many commented, both directly to us via email and as comments to the posts. And rereading the comments and our answers helped us further clarify the text, so a big thank you to all.
While we were at it, we rearranged the posts into more logical and longer chapters and edited all of the comments.

This is Just The Start
We plan to do two to four of these second edition Online Books each year, which, along with the twenty first edition Online Books, makes the annual membership of Can$19.99 very reasonable and the current special introductory price of $9.99 for the first year a veritable steal—get it now, because these rewrites are hard work and once we get a few more done, the introductory price is history.
This whole online Online Book concept is new and we are well aware that we still have a lot to learn. So please leave a comment with any suggestions you may have, particularly after reading the new Heavy Weather Tactics Online Book.
