It’s meant to take 5-7 days for everything to get updated on Amazon, but the book is available for sale there finally. There’s no content up currently other than the ability to look at the cover and buy the book yet, so here’s my sales push.

About the Author
As you can see – it’s a fairly sizable book, 344 printed pages. One of my most serious goals was that whatever I put out was going to be just a ton of content in a fairly priced package. This is not an 80 page $49.99 eBook that has ten actual pages of information. You aren’t going to feel punked for buying it.
This is a systematic primer that breaks everything down into simple readable chunks. The blog jumps around a great deal, this just lays it all out in order like a Navy SEAL cleaning a gun. Each section could stand alone and even some of the chapters are shorter and clearer versions of many other good books that I can think of. I could have added more content, but at some point I just have to stop and hit the “publish” button.
Which leads me to my explanation of the book title and my secret plans…
My feeling is that sex, love, relationships and marriage are not going to go away anytime soon. So there will always be a need for a primer for men who are married, or thinking about getting married. My intention is to revise and expand The Primer every year, in a quest for ever increasing quality and relevance. So you might buy the book now, but in seven years time, I want you to be able to buy the 2018 edition for your little brother or son. In 2040, maybe his son gets a copy. In terms of my personal direct involvement, I plan on bowing out in thirty years when I’m seventy. Maybe my daughters and sons-in-law will carry it on.
I can never let myself finish reading and learning on a topic I’m interested in, so doing it this way is something I have to do to even allow myself to stop and actually print an edition. Next time there’s maybe a fancier cover or whatever, but I’m very proud of what I’ve done here. It’s just so coherent. (I’ve had some fabulous editing help as well.) I’ve been exceptionally pleased with Createspace as the publisher too, the book is printed amazingly well.
This weekend I have to sort out the ePUB / Kindle / Nook thing, so stay tuned for that if that’s your preference. I’m just excited to see the book available to buy so soon on Amazon. If you have a blog or whatever and want review copies, let me know and I’ll get them to you.
So after this, there’s more blogging, more versions, a couple other ideas for books, hopefully some travel and speaking gigs and a long future of doing my part to try and make the world right again.
This is the part where you are supposed to be buying the book.
