All four of the Piano Guide Books are now available as 8.5" x 11" paperback books, through my CreateSpace store. I just received the proofs, and I must add that they look great! CreateSpace is a part of that prints books on demand. The books are priced the same as the e-books, but you have to pay the shipping and handling. You can order them from The Piano Guide Book Store.
