Saw this on another forum. Haven't seen it mentioned here lately, so thought I would:

Actually, I have spoken several times of this e-book. It has changed my life in a dramatic way.
It is all about empowerment.
I am considering a sharing of experience between pianists of all types who want to "reengineer" their practice on a base that suits their needs in a more satisfactory way.

We shall see how things turn out.

This looks really good! I've read partway through the first chapter, and so far its really interesting. It's kind of geared more towards beginners, so some of it does not totally apply, but going over the basics never hurts! I'd suggest everyone else look over this as well.

I found this book on here several days ago and it has been really fascinating. I'm trying to use to learn the fantasy impromptu. I know I should start with something 'easier' but I'm a glutton for punishment. So far it's become obvious to me that my right hand is almost twice as nimble (and fast) as my left. I will have to double up my efforts on that hand if I want to come close to learning this piece.
