In the Yikes Zone - book

I've seen a lot of mentions of this book (In the Yikes Zone by Mermer Blakeslee), and read a little about it. I think this would really help me with some of my issues (particularly since I am about to tackle Alta and Snowbird). I've searched it on the net, and it seems to be out of print, I've seen prices well above $100. If any Divas have a spare copy lying around that they'd be willing to post to me, I'd be very grateful, and would be happy to pay a generous price.

Check the DOD section; there's a copy in circulation for the Divas.

There's also a copy of Right on the Edge of Crazy, if you haven't read that yet.

I found it on Amazon for like $25 - but have not read it yet, so I don't want to part with my copy. Did you check there?

Yep, from $99. You obviously don't need yours, hand it over!

:boxing:
:laughter: Wow - I can't believe what they are charging - $192 for one of them??! If I get sick of it I can just list it on Amazon for $100 and make a big profit!
(only kidding - I sort of want to hang onto it.:p)
