oh and about the books, they're all solid. the saulo one is probably the most informative book i've seen. i remember when i was having trouble with what he calls the "x-pass" (it's not an x-guard pass, it's just a variation on standup passing). i flipped through for just a minute and saw it. he had one line that made me go "...oh." that was my main pass for like 3 months. then of course, everybody knew what pass i wanted to do, so it doesn't work anymore hah.
maybe in a few months when everybody gets used to my passes now, i'll bring it back.
