    ...if you say it--why, it must be true...
    Not mastered yet--that will be volume 2.
    Also my book is not written from the standpoint of having mastered. There would no doubt be some prickly b--- to say I was dead wrong. (You know who you are...) The book teaches in detail what the platform and features do. And a few high gain basics. (And a few fave tricks and tweaks). Then it's up to the reader.
    Thanks for your interest.

    From reading a couple of cjc's "books," they are basically re-written owners manuals. He publishes every time a new machine comes out. I think he goes to the online manual and just rips it off.

    Thanks Terry - Yes, I have had many PM's about him ripping off people with info that is already out there.. Hope he gets the message that we do not like people that make a profit off of people that just love the hobby.

    CJC... crawl back into your hole. quit trying to make a profit off of info that is already out there. You are not credible to any of us.

    My books are highly detailed manuals based on my 39 years of detecting. I also get tips and tricks from top hunters worldwide. Never had a complaint or a return. Read my feedback--that says more than any number of you barking dogs. Not even sure why I respond to someone who lists their shovels. I barely even deal with beginner stuff--as would be covered in the manuals. Too much else to say. I have four books on the Excalibur--is all that out of the manual? And what about "Pulsepower?" What manual is that from?
    Never a shortage of haters and trolls.

    I have purchased virtually every book that Clive has written. All have paid for themselves many times over. These are not rewritten user manuals, these are well written books that teach you what questions to ask, and teaches you how to answer them. A good critique of a machine thru the eyes of an experienced detectorist, outlining strengths and weaknesses of the machine in question, is a very valuable resource.

    I have already ordered his book in the Equinox, and I have not even received the detector itself. His books are that good.

    Thank you Clive for all you have taught me thru your writing.

    I have not read any of Clive's books. Still, Even if they were re-writes of manuals, they could be worth the money as long as they give a better understanding of how to use the detector. Most manuals give you the basic functions of a device but don't go into details of how they can be used with other functions of a machine. Real world applications along with good written examples can help a person understand their detector in a way that a manual cannot.

    I am sure you have heard the old saying, "more than one way to skin a cat"
    This applies to writing. so, he may touch on stuff that is already out there but that don't mean what is already out there is better written.

    Let the people who purchase his books decide if its worth it or not. Their reviews will make or break his efforts.

    Just my thoughts
    Dig till you drop!

    The man pays to be a charter member to sale his books. If you don’t like them don’t buy them. I have had his books in the past and enjoyed them. Some of the items I see for sale on here have little or no value to me but I don’t trash the product. If this is the way this site is run then I see no need in being a charter member.

    Thanks very kindly guys--I knew there might be some satisfied customers out there. My mentor Terry C. used to say "when I started--all you had was your manual..." When I started there were just a few guys who took the time to explain a couple of things in posts, books or W& E articles. Guys like Donald Barthel, Jimmy Pugh, Carter and Trevellian, Bill Lahr, Michael O. Smith, Michael Chapman Karl Chulick, Wallace Chandler....I could list about ten more. That information was huge deal to me and I read it over and over and had many "Eureka" moments in learning machines as a result. This is the legacy of help that has been handed down to me and I take my responsibility to my readers very seriously. If I had nothing of value to say-- I wouldn't write. I keep in mind exactly what I would like to see had I bought that book for it to be well worth the money. If those guys aren't careful, they will hurt my feeling (doubt it though). Hope to hell I get some help from the WM--I do pay to be a charter member--not to be harrassed. Did send him a note.
    The new one has come out very well--thanks for the vote of confidence, guys. Good Luck Detecting, Clive

    Just in case anyone is buying this horse **** here's an actual review AFTER the fact. whatchacall your contemp prior to investigation. Offerd this guy a comp too--refused. Just plain mean spirited. Thanks also WM for your "help"....that's what you get for your charter memeber money here.
    First review:

    "Received my copy. Very informative. I would highly recommend."

    Actually Clive, I have requested to review your books several times and was completely ignored. Not even a, "screw you Terry." I had to find somebody that had one of your pamphlets so I could see what you were all about. I know that a few dozen folks are very satisfied with your work (congratulations), but I was not. That doesn't make either one of us a bad person. You put stuff on a public forum, you can expect to be challenged, criticized, even ridiculed - I know I have!

    I never said you were a bad person, ugly, too skinny, stupid, or silly. I wrote that your Books "are basically re-written owners manuals." That is my opinion. I would love to review this new book and learn that I am completely wrong. I would be thrilled to say it is a work of first-hand knowledge that no NOX owner should be without. Right now, I can't.
