Ultimate CI Book 1

Of the three books attached here in a post a few days ago – free only to patrons – the Ultimate CI Books (1 and 2, with Book 3 due out sometime in 2022) actually took the past six years to write. 

Books 1 and 2 originally appeared in 2016 as one big monster book of 550 pages called The Invisibles, but Teacher’s Discovery wanted it in the form of two books and doing that actually took me four more years, since 2017, to accomplish. 

I write about these books here because it is of paramount importance to me that all group members understand what they have to lose if they don’t explore this program. In my view the Ultimate CI books are as jet airplanes to paper airplanes – those materials out there currently available in the CI world – which are simply weak. 

It is my sincere and heartfelt goal to help those interested in CI who have signed up as patrons here to get CI right. If you want to be liberated from the constant battles that comprehensible input seem to require, go download the Ultimate CI Book 1 from the post “Free Books” from a few days ago, and start reading it whenever you can. 

If you put the work in to learn this approach between now and next academic year, with plenty of time to test things in the spring, you will be glad you did. You will be doing pirouettes in the fall of 2022.

I will post more about the Ultimate CI program in subsequent posts. Why should I write about other things when this one book has everything you need in it? I HOPE we get some kind of discussion going on it here in upcoming months. That depends on you. 

Yes, we can discuss other things, and bring whatever you want up in that regard either via email or comments, but the easiest and by far the fastest way for me to turn you all into CI masters is via the Ultimate CI program. 

There is all the rest of the pablum out there about CI, and then there are these books. Put the energy into it now. The result will be that you will not dislike your job anymore (I hated mine for 24 years so I know from whence I make these claims).
