Your Video Resources

Congratulations! You made it through to your hidden video page!

You’ve arrived at the video resources for your paperback book! These videos will enrich your learning experience and supplement the 60+ photographs and what you are reading in the book. They are not “stand-alone” training videos. They complement and enhance the content of the written text and the photographs in the book. For the best experience, we recommend viewing the videos in the order they appear in the book, as you read that section.

Please note that any ads you see running on our videos were placed by YouTube. We’re sorry about that annoyance. YouTube changed its policy about that after we had the channel set up.

And to the people who may have happened onto this page but don’t have the book: it’ll make a lot more sense if you get the book.
