A New Book By Michel!

Post: # 12664Post Latya »

I have just finished TP for the fourth time and to be honest, got just as much as from the first three times :)

Michel has been in my thoughts a lot. Some part of me seemed to feel he had a third book in him and hoping he would get it written. So imagine the excitement when tonight I came across a video on youtube about The Freedom of Choice by Tom Chalko, that mentioned this forum :) - and in the youtube video list on the right - I was sure I saw Michel's face! And it was!

This was from just a few months ago

MIchel is looking very well!

His book is called Nature's Revenge
I do not know when / if it will be translated into English or other languages.

ISBN: 9784434158919
ISBN: 4434158910

This long link is a translation of the Amazon.jp link for the book

wow, thank you for sharing - until now I did not know about this, either!

How interesting, Michel doesn't use glasses now?
Thanks Latya! Anyone knows where the original in English (or French) can be obtained?

Something strange: http://www.youtube.com/user/Desmarquet
His Youtube activity doesn't exactly match what we know of his personality... or does it? Maybe a younger family member or a tech-savvy friend is posting for him?

Ohh thanks for the heads up. Really want to buy it, and I think I know enough Japanese to read it ^^. I'm going to visit Japan soon, but I doubt I can find that book there.

Did anyone read it yet? Does it has anything with the sequel to TP or is it another standalone thing?

Hmm.. I wonder if it will be translated to other languages? And why in Japanese specifically? I started learning Japanese some time ago, because I was interested in the language and culture, but dropped my studies later. I always felt I should start again, perhaps this was a sign from my higher self..?

Google translates that as:

Please read Nde Good luck in Japanese

I wonder if Nde = New desmarquet epistle ??

I would not rely on a computer program to translate. (No idea what Nde means.)
No, my language skills are very simple.

Im guessing it means 'and'. [ と ].

I have always thought Michel is in Vietnam or so. Now he is in Japan?

It should be 読んでください。 You added another extra "nde" (んで) in it :P.

I'll try to get the book, but I need to jump through a few hoops before...
