2010 in Review and my Wedding

2009 was probably the happiest year of my life. 2010 had some challenges that were probably some of the hardest I have had to date, but also some peaks that I have never achieved before.

Both to satisfy my voyeurs as well as an aid to memory and the way forward, I thought I would amuse you by giving you a brief rundown of my year.

SYSTEMA BOOK – The New, First and Only Complete Systema Manual in the World

Finally! It’s here (well almost, but it’s available for purchase at least!).

After a rather traumatic last few months, I have now been able to send off the brand new book for final edits.

You can see more information on it at: SYSTEMA BOOK

Announcing the Announcement

Various issues kept me from the internet until now, so this post is a few hours late.

On the good side though, in a couple of weeks you will see an announcement here about my second book. I wrote the first one in 1995 and it’s now out of print (although if people are interested in it, at some point in the future there may be a reprint). That was called The Face on Mars and was pretty technical and had a lot of science in it. It also got me flown to London to give some lectures and made me appear on TV in Europe and the USA and on radio in South Africa.

It did relatively well considering how few of them were printed and a lot of it was also plagiarised by Graham Hancock, he of Fingerprints of the Gods fame. I called him on it too when I next met him at a talk he gave and he blamed his ghost-writers. Ah well, what you gonna do.

Anyway, this book is on a totally different subject and in about a week or two you will be able to read all about it here.

So come back to have a look soon.

Intelligence, Race and Genetics – Interesting Book

IMAGE FROM LIFE MAGAZINE

Arthur Jensen is a controversial figure since 1969, when he took part in a magazine interview with HER magazine and was soon after the focus of extreme controversy. He has received death threats, been accused of being a racist and vilified by many. Yet he has also been lionised by an almost equal number, many of them scientists. So what is the truth about this man, his work, and the science behind it? He was probably the first to look at difference in intelligence based on genetics, heredity and thus race, as well as environmental factors.

Would you rather be Rich and Famous or Feel Good about yourself?

[This is a long post (a 20 minute read) but on the up side it’s kind of gossipy and takes personal shots at some writers of famous books. And I told them about it too. **]


Ideally you’d want to be able to pick any two (I don’t care for fame really), but most of the time it really does seem as if we have to chose between integrity and monetary wealth. I once worked in the American Air Force base at Aviano in Italy, for a German company who was stuffed to the gills with the most incompetent managers I have ever had the misfortune of knowing.
