It’s been just over a month since I launched the expanded book and I wanted to provide you with a bit more info on what all it includes.
Firstly, I need to point out that I added enough new information to justify creating an entirely new book. This is what most authors do, because it allows them to continue selling book #1 in addition to the second book. I didn’t do that, even though it would have been better for me. I felt it would be better for people to have ALL of the information they need to keep their dogs healthy in ONE book.
Below is a photo of the old book and the new one printed out, to give you an idea of the volume of information that’s been added. The old version has 100 pages, and the new one has 220 pages. (I think that older version was printed on heavier paper, as well.) 😊
In addition to the new information, near the back of the book there’s a flowchart and a lot of supporting information that will walk readers through the process of choosing a rotation. I spent a lot of time creating this tool and think it will be invaluable to new RMF’rs.
I’ve also added reviews from health professionals (including a past president of the American Holistic Veterinary Association), a lot more information on myself and what led me the write the book, and I’ve organized it in parts that explain everything intelligently and sequentially. It starts with a problem (dog disease and the industry that thrives on it), it introduces a new approach to the problem (Natural Hygiene) and it cohesively explains how to apply this information in the reader’s specific circumstances (RMF).
I hope you will enjoy reading this expanded book as much as I have enjoyed bringing it to you. Nothing makes me happier than to think that there are lots of healthier dogs in the world because of my efforts.
