I think if I want a one stop shop for the truth I probably need to go see Mike Sigman. After all that's been said, I think if he doesn't have the goods nobody does.
Actually, I *don't* have the goods. And that's no false modesty, either. I know people that really have the goods and I ain't one of 'em. At best I'm a western guy who has been "researching how to do these things" for about 25 years and I've got some modest skills. And yeah, I'm a big strong boy that weighs in at 225 pounds and I'm athletic.... but my real knowledge of these skills is limited. I don't know of a single westerner who can claim truly expert level in these skills, although I know a few who'd silently take the plaudits. Let's be honest... these skills are just getting off the ground in the West. Everyone can get on the front of the wave with just a little bit of effort and some training and thought. Let's don't screw it up this time by starting the game-playing and king-making again.
