To do a thread ressurection: I got a copy of this as well and while I'm not all the way finished yet, it is an excellent book for those wanting to look into side mount. Easy to read and excellent information. It by no means will substitute for a class, but you will go into the class with some basic information and probalby a good list of questions.

I will go and say a must read for anyone looking to go side mount.

Thanks again for posting this Mike.
