Here are some comments on Slap It! from some great players and teachers:
Excellent! Finally, an easy-to-understand, comprehensive study on the fine art of slap technique. This is a book that NO electric bassist should miss.
Tim Landers

Slap It! will turn your head! The most complete book yet on the art of slap bass playing. Definitely the bible of twang!
Clyde Bullard (Mystic Merlin, Capital Records)

I've found this book to be a must for any bass player . . . I was able to improve my recording technique of the 'funk' styles. The text of this book is very precise in pinpointing various techniques of this style, not to mention the creativity of the bass lines that can give you endless ideas for your own style.
Ken Smith (N.Y. studio musician;manufacturer of the Smith Electric Bass)

An excellent book for getting this new concept together. It answers the questions that many of my students have been asking.
Rich Appleman (Chairman, Bass Department,Berklee College of Music)

Thank you, Tony! This book is a monster! For you the reader, this book will help you reach a level of finger-popping, toe-tapping dexterity! Good luck!
