Rigger's Apprentice update

I happened to visit Spartalk a few minutes ago and saw this post by Brion Toss about an upcoming new edition of his book, Rigger's Apprentice. Brion's a decent guy, so I thought I'd pass it on:
Hello all,
I have been much absent from these pages lately, but I have a good excuse: International Marine asked me for a revised and expanded update on the Rigger's Apprentice, and I've been working on that. They only wanted a bit, but I am giving them -- and you -- a lot. Almost every page of my copy is marked up with red ink, either to correct previously undetected flaws, or to reflect evolutions and variations in the field since the book was written, or to premier brand-new concepts.
If you want to get in line for a signed copy of the first printing, contact catalog@briontoss.com, and we will put you on the list. We've already had some requests for Christmas pre-printing gift certicicates, so let us know if you want one of those. The idea is that we mail you your copy as it comes off the presses, probably some time in January.
I am nearly done with a usable draft as of today. Will keep you posted. Please spread the word, if you will.
Fair leads,
