He is selling his whole program for supporting a bp. I receive his newsletter in the email, all the links but the one for comments that day lead to the sales pitch. I haven't bought, but I keep reading what he says. My wife subscribes also, so that can allow us to discuss that topic. At least that's a good thing.

I don't know if you need to purchase from him. As he says, all the info is out there, it's just a matter of tracking it down. He says he's just compiled it all together in one place. Seems a steep price to pay for that. But then again, I don't know. If you do buy it let us know what you thing.

I subscribed to his newsletter for a while, and looked at what he had to say. I wasn't that impressed because it seemed to me to be mostly promoting his book. If it helps someone, though, why not.

hey superStamper, I'll tell you why I'm stamperben if you tell me why you're superStamper.

Okay, this is off topic but what the heck.

In the printing industry I would take a die of the image to be transferred and attach it to a hot plate on the press and then sandwich metallic foil between the die and the paper when the press closed up, commonly called foil stamping. Thus my name here.

I went to his website, and it's TONS of stuff to read, but yeah, no real answers I can find, just leading to a sales pitch for his books/programs. However, I signed up for his emails, and have gotten a little bit from them (although the links invariably lead back to his sales pitch). I'll have to read more of them to decide if the info is really useful. So far, I've gotten a lot more help from books like Stop Walking on Eggshells (really for SO's of people with Borderline Personality Disorder), I Hate You - Don't Leave Me (also about BPD), Love Without Hurt, The Bipolar Survival Guide, and websites like this one.

Stamperben - I am superStamper because I like to use rubber stamps to create homemade cards and such. I have doing this for around 10 years - thanks for the info on D. Oliver. Cool
