Publishing day is going to be 10 August, but you can order it already. Just click the „Donate“ button on top of this page, donate $ 24.50 and write EBOOK GENERATIVE or something like that. I ĺl send you the book including all 108 videos (total length more than 14 hours), 118 patch examples and 202 graphics some days before the official publishing day. And you´ll get all the extras and add-ons, which I´m going to give away to everybody, who buys the book on publishing day (10 August) as well.

Enjoy your day!
