Thanks Alain... but is the book biased in what anchors are preferred or is it a general purpose guide to anchoring? Given that you are the designer and manufacturer of a specific anchor, it is a realistic question to ask.

Thanks for your clever question.. I don't believe the book is biased at all, as my co-authors and the editor, would never allow me to do that.. ;) and next point, if I will always remain the designer of several specific anchors, wich could means that I have some knowledge on the subject.. :o But, I have sold the Spade company and I don't have anymore commercial, marketing or financial interest with any anchor manufacturer.. :)
