Hail to the Dinosaurs!
I wanted to let you be the first to know about
something very exciting.
We're going to launch the new diet and nutrition
book on Mon Sept. 15.
As always, we're going to do a pre-publication
special. That lets us know how many books to
print, so it's a big help.
When we fill the orders in October, everyone
who ordered during the pre-publication special
will get a bonus item -- or possibly two of them.

My speed under the bar has improved enormously.
And I'm lifting very close to my previous top weights,

have a great day. If you train today, make it a good
Yours in strength,
