Final Copies of Breaking the Rules

November 16th, 2010

breakrules-covers1.jpg
On my travels, I have had people come up to me and tell me how much this textbook meant to them at some important point in their lives. Often they regret lending it to someone and never getting it back. If this happened to YOU, this is a great chance to get replacement copies in mint condition. The 1977 version (I have one extra copy) is yours for $35, the 1992 spiral bound version for $25. Add $4 for shipping. If you are interested, you should email bea@beanettles.com to learn how to proceed to reserve your copy.

Details will be posted here soon:http://www.andersonranch.org/workshops/index.php?page=workshops-summer&nav1=summer-workshops
